11.6-inch Apple MacBook Air with Core i-series Intel chip on the way?
Apple has distanced themselves more than once from the netbook market in the past, even claiming their “DNA will not let them ship” [a netbook]. However, it looks like Apple has finally changed its mind regarding the netbook market after all, if a new report from DigiTimes about an upcoming MacBook Air is to be believed. After all these years in the market and only ever receiving a small upgrade in its internals, the Apple MacBook Air is rightly fit for a design change. What kind of change that might be remains uncertain, but a senior analyst at DigiTimes Research an 11.6-inch MacBook Air is on the way, and it will have an Intel Core i-series ULV processor. It is also said that this new model will feature “an even slimmer and lighter design than the previous-generation models.” This sounds very interesting, and apart from heat concerns, might come out as another marvel in engineering. But as confirmation from Apple is still unavailable, I suggest take this report with a grain of salt.
