The 12-inch Retina MacBook Air could come in iPhone 6 colors, and a 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina display has been rumored. 

According to A Tech Website, a source “familiar with Apple’s plans” revealed that the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air will come in Space Gray, Gold, and its current aluminium color. 

This means that the new MacBook will have colors consistent with the upcoming iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. 

Although John Brownlee from CultofMac calls A Tech Website a “dubious-sounding blog” and is “skeptical” of the site’s claims, he notes that coloring the MacBook Air is perfectly within Apple’s capabilities because “same anodizing process used to make aluminum iPhone backs gray and gold would work just as well on the MacBook unibody clamshells.”

The 12-inch Retina MacBook Air is rumored for a mid-2015 launch. It is expected to have a new, ultra-thin chassis, a trackpad without a mechnical button, and a fanless design, thanks to the new 14-nm Intel Broadwell chips.

In other news, WitsView (via Digitimes) notes that Apple is going to release a 27-inch, 5K resolution iMac by the end of Q4, 2014. 

This new model would join the other “Ultra HD” panels that will arrive before the end of the year. 

The price of a 5K iMac won’t be cheap though, as WitsView observed that the average price of a 28-inch Ultra HD monitor was $630 in August.
