The basic idea behind this project is a series of components from the current MacBook Air, combined with an 11 inch screen. The screen is a touch-based one, but there’s also mouse and keyboard input available. The facelift Macintosh of 2015 comes with a 128 GB SSD storage, 4 or 8 GB of RAM and the CPU is the latest Core i7 from Intel. The case of the device is made of high quality aluminum, the same one used for Macbooks, iPhones and iPads.

The back of the Mac concept includes a lit up Apple logo. In the place of the 3.5 inch disk slot, you will now find a slot for SD cards, the FaceTime camera, as well as speakers and a mic. Curved/Labs’ concept offers support for all WiFi and Bluetooth standards, USB 3.0, Lightning and there’s even a built in battery. Even a gold color case was thrown in for good measure. Funky, right?
