That's a 13-inch MacBook Air. Look at the size difference (perspective wouldn't account for that much difference).

Yeah, the one in the background tapers and the one in the front has the thunderbolt port placement of an air (dog is covering the tapering)

I think you may have found the Smoking Gun..

YES.. Amazing Work there.. :eek:

In late January I believe he secretly bought up almost ALL the Apple Stock in the world using various aliases, just so he could get one to play with before the 'little people' got their grubby hands on them.. and likely for FREE.. Cheeky Bastard.. :D

Or maybe not.. :eek:

I think the most obvious thing is that the "MagSafe" is L which is the old one. Confirmed it is a MacBook Air :D

They are both MacBook Air 13-inch. The middle port is a USB port, not a HDMI port :)

Cheers!

If you are wondering what those ports on that "mysterious" machine are...

From right to left: Thunderbolt/Mini DisplayPort > USB > SD Slot

Clearly a 2010/2011/2012 MacBook Air 13". The other machine is also that very same one because you can see clearly that it doesn't have the speaker grille.

Oh, and one more thing: L MagSafe is not the safe thing to go by, guys. I can use a MagSafe > MagSafe 2 adapter to get a L MagSafe on my rMBP just fine.

Taper gave it all off, though. So obvious...

...he thought it would be a better investment than Facebook stock...

How do you miss the taper on the front? And "you just stumbled" ... okay. ;)

The only Macbook with a Thunderbolt/Mini-Displayport on the right side is the Macbook Air.

Just breath and think about it...

1 - Why would Mark Zuckerberg get early access to one of the largest MBP redesigns in years?
2 - How do you "happen" upon his FB page?
3 - Even if A happened and B was really just a coincidence, why would it matter in the slightest?

Cool find, but it definitely does look like a MBA. Agreed with JW.

Apple is known to NOT give out advanced releases no matter who you are. Celebrities beg but no cigar, even The WOZ has to line up at the Apple store to get his. Not to mention the Apple engineer who forgot his test 4s at the bar surely made Apple even shy-er.
