2011 MacBook Air Rumors: Black Models and new low starting Price of $899

New MacBook Air rumors broke today.

2011 MacBook Air Rumors: Black Models and new low starting Price of $899
 
 

The MacBook Air is anticipated to be the next hardware release from Apple. It is pretty certain that Apple will not release anything before the OS X Lion release in July. The new MacBook Air is expected to feature the Thunderbolt port and adopting the new Intel Sandybridge CPUs found in the new MacBook Pro and iMac. Today MacRumors filed a report that they received several anonymous tips that Apple is releasing a black MacBook Air version. The black option would be available on the top end MacBook Air laptops. I am not really convinced that this is going to happen.

What I can imagine is that the MacBook Air adopts the black canvas around the screen like the MacBook Pro is featuring. I actually prefer that look and I think it enhances the screen.

9to5Mac reports that they received a tip saying that Apple is lowering the price of the entry-level MacBook Air to $899. This would be another blow to the Windows laptop makers that struggle to offer an MacBook Air alternative. This lower price would raise even more question marks on what Apple is going to do with the MacBook. Cancel it?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
