New MacBook Air rumored to launch already this week.

Apple's supply chain is magic. Yesterday we reported that Apple is entering mass production of the new 2011 MacBook Air this month. Now a new rumor says Apple is already launching the new MacBook Air on Wednesday along with the 2011 Apple Back To School Promotion.

A new Apple leak source on Twitter called ChronicWire is the source for the new Apple MacBook Air rumor. ChronicWire also calls out Wednesday as Apple Back To School launch day.

I guess we have to wait until Tuesday if Apple really is going to release the new 2011 MacBook Air just weeks ahead of the new OS X Lion update.

ChromeWire just tweeted that their sources mixed up part numbers and unlocked iPhones instead of new MacBook Air laptops will reach Apple Stores. I already regret to have posted this rumor.

The first generation MacBook Air laptops used actually rather slow CPUs (Core 2 Duo). Apple did not adopt the Intel Core series. The new MacBook Air is supposed to use the new Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs as the 2011 MacBook Pro does. If true than the 2011 MacBook Air would offer dramatic performance in its super thin and light form factor. Additionally the new MacBook Air will get a Thunderbolt port.
