Report: new MacBook Airs will arrive in June

According to reports, Apple’s new MacBook Air is slated to be launched in June or July. In typical Apple fashion, these reports have been neither confirmed nor denied, but the potential launch would come at an appropriate time considering the recent revamping of Apple’s MacBook Pro and iMac product lines.

So what’s expected if the revamping of the Air comes to fruition? For starters, it’s likely to get Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors. It’s also likely that Air will receive the Thunderbolt high-speed port. Of course the Air is also about maximum portability, so Apple may cut the dimensions and/or weight of the upcoming model to compete more aggressively with slim new notebooks from Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Samsung, and Acer.

The Sandy Bridge architecture first came to the MacBook Pros in late February. These laptops also received the new high-speed Thunderbolt port. Earlier this month, Apple released the new iMac all-in-one desktops with quad-core Sandy Bridge processors, and of course Thunderbolt.

The last update to the MacBook Air came back in October when Apple unveiled OS X 10.7 “Lion.” That new operating system will also arrive in Apple stores this summer.
