What do you think of the MacBook Air? Packed snugly with a speed-boosting Solid State Drive and about as light as a laptop can be, the MacBook Air is — whether you like it or not — a very Apple product.

If you've ever thought that the MacBook Air wasn't compact enough, well, then Apple's next announcement might be the one that you're looking for. Popular Apple blog 9to5Mac got in touch with Apple insiders who doled out some amazing hints about the next-gen MacBook Air.

The next MacBook Air will get rid of USB ports, MagSafe connectors and the SD card slot that have come standard in every Apple laptop until now. So how many ports can you expect on the upcoming MacBook Air? Two.

One port for headphones, another USB Type-C connector that functions as a USB and power connector.
