Right now we hold details from Macworld.com.au claims, that their known sources have gotten a quick look of some SKUs with product number “MC516LL/A K87 BETTER BTR-US” though it could be the new Air refresh, Macworld also claimed the it can be other product like a new iMac monitor.
- The Macbook Air was last updated in June 2009. Apple rarely lets its product cycles lapse a year (an exception would be the Mac mini prior to March 2009, which went without a refresh for more than 18 months) and a May release for this niche class of notebook would make sense, according to Apple’s update history.
- Intel is on the verge of releasing both its i3 and i5 ULV processors. These chips are designed to consume very little power, meaning that great battery life in now possible for lightweight devices like the MacBook Air.
- The new battery technology that Apple introduced in its latest laptop release is screaming for inclusion in the MacBook Air.
