    Hi,

    What new ports will be added to the 11" (and 13") MBAs in the near
    future?? I see some video and still camera brands releasing new
    models. The current ports may be too slow for the transfer of data
    of these new cameras and other devices. What do you see added
    to the new 11" MBAs within the next three to five months, (until
    September).

    Thank you, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    I don't see any ports being added to the MBA in that timescale.

    What new cameras and camcorders are you talking about? What new interface ("port") do they have? And on what medium do they store their data on?

    USB 2.0 is still faster than most SD cards nowadays, USB 2.0 offers up to 37 MB/s, not many SD cards offer those read speeds, thus a faster interface will not help much. And since the MBA has a Thunderbolt port, it already has a very fast "port", you might just need an appropriate adapter or breakout box for connecting other interfaces to it.

    Hi,

    I see both have thunderbolt at the moment.
    I wonder how important the USB 3.0 can be.

    Thank you, kind regards,
