Specifications of the new MacBook Air leak ahead of launch, if real.
Apple is expected to release new MacBook Air laptops soon after the release of OS X Lion today. What is assumed so far is that the new MacBook Air will have a Thunderbolt port and run on new CPUs from the Intel Sandy Bridge line. Now 9to5Mac published a report that carries the supposed specifications of the new MacBook Air models courtesy of Mr. X.
There rumored standard 4GB configuration is according to these specifications not true. The base 11.6-inch MacBook Air comes with 2GB RAM, 1.6Ghz CPU and 64GB storage. The second 11.6-inch MacBook Air configuration includes 4GB RAM, 128GB storage and the same 1.6Ghz CPU.
The two new 13.3-inch MacBook Air laptops run on a 1.7Ghz CPU, 4GB RAM and the choice of a 128GB and 256GB storage size.
Both MacBook Air sizes are available also as built to order. There you can up the CPU to a 1.8Ghz model. The new MacBook Air is expected earliest today or later this week to go on sale on the Apple Store.
We expect Apple to keep the current pricing for the new MacBook Air line starting at $999. This leaves still the open question what Apple is going to do with the aging MacBook.
