There is a rumor floating around that Apple will be releasing a new refresh of the MacBook Air line up. AppleInsider is reporting that the Australian Macworld is claiming that the refresh is definitely set to happen. While that itself wouldn’t normally get our hopes up too much, AppleInsider is quickly to point out this is the same source who correctly reported the arrival of the new MacBook Pros.
With Apple latest MacBook Pro updates, it would make sense that the MacBook Airs are next in line for the refresh treatment.
AppleInsider speculates a little further into what you might see in the potential new MacBook Air line up, “it was suggested that the MacBook Air refresh might have seen a delay due to limited availability of Intel’s Core i5 ultramobile processors. Those reports suggested Apple could adopt the ultra-thin 18W TDP processor. The Core i5-520UM has a maximum processor speed of 1.86GHz, and an integrated GPU with 500MHz of processing power. The 32nm dual-core chip also includes 3MB of L3 cache.”
