With Apple holding an event on Monday, there’s the usual flurry of rumours coming in about the things we might see. Of course, we’ll learn more about the watch, but there’s also suggestions that we might see a MacBook Air update alongside that.
New images from Chinese forum Feng.com appear to show screenshots of the system specifications for a new 13-inch MacBook Air. The pictures, which we’ve included here, suggest that a new model of Apple’s ultra-potable notebook could have an Intel Core 1.6GHz i5-5250U processor, Intel HD Graphics 6000 and 4GB of RAM. It’s also worth pointing out that this supposed new model comes with the 1440 x 900 display that has been on every 13-inch MacBook Air since 2010, not a ‘Retina Display’.
What this information points to is that Apple may merely refresh the specs of the MacBook Air on Monday, rather than introduce a whole new model with a new design, as some rumours have suggested. Those rumours, which still keep popping up, say that the company is developing an entirely new 12-inch model of the Air that will have an even thinner design and possibly a ‘Retina Display’.
But all of this is not to say that the new model won’t appear at the event too – it’s highly possible that we’ll see a brand new model and a refresh of the old 13-inch model. Stay tuned to eTeknix on Monday when we’ll find out.
