RUMOR: New MacBook Airs Coming in June / July
Posted on May 18, 2011 by kelly maddox
DigiTimes is reporting that a MacBook Air refresh is coming this summer featuring Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt technology.
The Taiwan-based supply chain for Apple products will begin shipments of new 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch MacBook Air models featuring Sandy Bridge platform and Thunderbolt interface in late May for launch in June or July, according to makers in the supply chain. While Apple’s PR representatives in Taiwan have neither confirmed nor responded to the report, it has long been understood that Apple always keeps silent about its new products not yet launched, the sources emphasized.
AppleInsider had reported last month that Apple would begin manufacturing an updated MacBook Air in May, so this report by DigiTimes seem to corroborate with that.
