New MacBook Airs?

Intel has been pushing its new Ultrabook machines pretty hard with various computer makers taking up the mantle to offer Ultrabooks to consumers. Acer and Asus are two of the firms that are offering Ultrabooks. The Ultrabook is a very compact and thin notebook with less power than larger machines along the lines of the MacBook Air.

Apple is looking to fight the Ultrabooks for the dollars of the computer shoppers looking for ultraportable machines. DigiTimes reports that Apple is set to launch a new series of MacBook Air machines in Q1 2012. The new Air machines will reportedly use 11.6-inch, 13.3-inch, and 15-inch screens according to supply chain sources. Apple is also expected to cut the price of the existing MacBook air computers in preparation for the new models.

The price cuts are already being seen with prices on MacMall for the existing 11.6-inch model with 64GB of storage hitting $939.94 and Best Buy offering the same machines for $849.99. The 128GB version is also selling at a discount along with the 13.1-inch 256GB models.
