The older MacBook Air [via jamesjm88]
AppleInsider reports of MacBook Air’s drying up supplies at major retailers like Amazon, MacConnection, MacMail and J&R. All the previously mentioned retailers are showing “no stock”. Such shortages tend to occur when Apple prepares to overhaul a product line.
If rumors are to be believed, the next MacBook Air will also include a 11.6” option (instead of the usual 13.3”). It will be of unibody construction like the MacBook Pro and will allegedly have the option to replace an Intel Core 2 Duo ULV with one of AMD’s offerings.
Next up is Engadget’s post which, once again, allegedly shows a MacBook Air opened-up and de-screwed to show its innards. If the photograph is to be believed: it looks like the new Air will be unibody (like we just mentioned above), have a bigger battery and have straight-up USB ports (no drop-down side-ports), a Mini DisplayPort and an SD Card reader.
Our belief is that there will be a new MacBook Air next week. The product is long long overdue for a true update and Apple should definitely do something to make people not forget the once-thinnest notebook.
