“Apple is preparing to launch a refreshed line of MacBook Air laptops as soon as tomorrow, according to multiple sources,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.
“These sources say that shipments of new MacBook Airs have begun arriving in large quantities to Apple Stores across the country,” Gurman reports. “Another source adds that Apple Stores are scheduled to re-arrange the placement of Macs in stores to focus on the MacBook Air tomorrow morning.”
“While a milestone MacBook Air update with a thinner profile, no fan, and a Retina display is in the works, tomorrow’s update is not that computer,” Gurman reports. “Tomorrow’s update will probably focus on adding Intel’s latest Haswell chips. These processors offer minor speed increases, and Apple will likely tweak the Air’s storage options to round-out the update.”

Please LORD – PLEASE let them ship it with a new 4k Cinema Display….
PS Lord, I don’t care if its 27″ or 30″ as long as its bigger than 24″ my prayers will be answered. Don’t make me buy that Dell one…
Isn’t the 4K monitor that Apple sells from Sharp?
Nothing showing up here in Australia and it’s now the 29th. Only 5.30 am so they might switch the new models on at the same time the stores open….
I bet this one comes with a retina display. It won’t just be a minor speed bump that everyone’s expecting.
Why would they upgrade it now if they apparently are going to really make a significant upgrade soon? Idk ._.
Why would they silently update the AIR without a press release? I am likely wrong but, I don’t think there is a press conference tomorrow and I don’t remember apple doing a technology refresh on any product with a press release… Though I am sure I am wrong about that…
I meant I don’t remember them doing a refresh WITHOUT a press release.
