A user on Weiphone.com [via MacRumors] has revealed that Cupertino is preparing a new 12-inch Macbook design with refurbished internal new features.

The source claims that the future devices may not use a fan and the mechanical button on the trackpad could be removed.

A summary of the user’s post was translated by a MacRumors reader:

1. MacBook Air updates are coming soon; MacBook Pro updates won’t occur until September.

2. He discusses a new 12 inch notebook without fan assembly. It comes with a new trackpad design that doesn’t include the mechanical button, as we do on current MacBooks.

3. An Apple watch device does exist but still in prototype stage, so its announcement won’t come anytime soon.

The report notes that in October KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in October claimed that a 12-inch MacBook with a Retina Display could be released this later year.
