Now might not be the best time to go out and get a new Macbook if reports are to go by. Thanks to the latest version of OS X server, references have been found for disk images relating to a new Macbook. This leak comes curtoset of the OS X server 5.1 update which got it's release along a whole load of other updates on Monday 22nd March.
The model number of the computer is listed as MacBook and 9,1 and when you consider the original machine had a model number of MacBook 8,1 this could actually mean something significant. As for the end of April bit the reference in OS X server 5.1 list the 12 MacBook as early 2016.
For Apple products early indicates January through April mid indicates me through August and late indicates September through December.
No it's not a guarantee however it is a decent sized indication that a new 12" MacBook will be out soon.
