Earlier this morning news broke Apple is set to refresh its MacBook Air line up tomorrow, and now 9to5Mac has posted an image that reveals the leaked specs for the 13-inch model:
As you can see, the new addition is a 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz, a slight up compared to the current 1.3GHz processor/2.6GHz Turbo Boost. This minor spec bump should also apply to the 11-inch MacBook Air. Not a whole lot of change, as you can see. Expect the price to stay the same.
Analyst Ming Chi Kuo is expecting Apple to release a new 12-inch Retina MacBook Air in the third quarter of this year, in line with other reports.
If you’re going to buy a 11-inch or 13-inch MacBook Air, this minor refresh might put off your procrastination. However, you might want to wait for this rumoured Retina model; it’ll cost you, but it might be worth the wait.
