    Hey everyone,

    We received a tip from a website that said that the French manuals of the new MacBook Airs that were released this week contain references to a Thunderbolt 2 port. As it currently stands, the newer MacBook Airs do not have such a port, and I wanted to see if anyone who picked one up in the U.S. or other countries have the same reference in their booklet.

    This obviously could be a typo, but if anyone else sees this in their manual and picked up their MacBook Air yesterday, let us know in the thread.

    If anybody with the newer models can test this, could be possible those newer Airs be using Thunderbolt 2. Knocks on wood.

    The manual has been updated. Earlier the manual on that link stated "Thunderbolt 2".

    Additionally, the current copy was created on May 1 according to its metadata - a day after the file was originally posted online.

    Manuals in other languages have yet to be updated.

    My guess is Thunderbolt 2 inclusion was canned at the last minute and referenced in the manuals by mistake.

    I can confirm it was there before, unfortunately I didn't save a copy of the file.

    +1 - It was definitely there before. Looks like it was an error that's been fixed.

    Just received my 2013 Macbook Air (refurb) and the quickstart guide shows Thunderbolt 2.

    Lol this makes me a bit disappointed if this was indeed a last minute decision to ditch TB2 for the 2014 Airs. But probably because the i7 models didn't have new Intel processors, it was a safe move.
