No tips on hardware or launch date
A new rumor is circulating that Apple is set to launch a new $799 MacBook Air in Q3 of this year. The tip comes from sources in upstream supply chain according to DigiTimes. The cheap MacBook Air could put a serious pounding on Intel's dreams of cheap ultrabooks becoming mainstream.
There are no details on the hardware the $799 MacBook Air might have. Right now Apple's 11 inch 64 GB Air sells for $999 with a 128 GB version going for $1199. The machines go up in price from there. It could be that the 11-inch machine will drop to $799 or we could possibly see a new version with even less storage hit the market.
