Is There an 11.6-inch MacBook on the Horizon?
The Apple rumor mill is puffing out reports of an 11.6-inch MacBook Air as supplies of the old model start to dwindle.
Apple's ultra portable 13-inch MacBook Air may soon be a thing of the past if the latest rumors are to be believed. Several retailers are showing that MacBook Airs are in short supply or sold out and given that these shortages are happening in October – a month known for Mac and MacBook refreshes – it's sparked rumors that Apple is preparing to launch a new version of the super-skinny laptop.
Leading the gossip are reports of a 11.6-inch display to replace the 13-inch screen the current model sports. CultofMac says that the new model will be a unibody affair, will be powered by an Intel Core i-series ultra-low voltage processor, and could weigh as little as 2.7 pounds.
The price of a current MacBook Air ranges from $1499 for the 1.86GHz version and $1799 for the 2.13GHz model. No word on what we can expect when it comes to the price of an 11.6-inch model.
