New MacBook Air models likely to debut on Tuesday, April 29

“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.”

  1. 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….

  2. 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…
