I haven't heard of such a refresh. There probably won't be one until next summer. But no one knows for sure.


There is probably only going to be an improvement on the processor. If your sister doesn't do anything intensive such as video editing she probably won't notice a difference.

Get her the current generation. It is plenty enough.

You can not really count on un-announced products. Everyone expects a 15 inch macbook air eventually in 2012 ( timing unclear ).

What happens if anything to the rest of the macbook air product line in early 2012 is really hard to predict.

Eventually sometime in 2012 yes probably a refresh but it may not be for a while.

The current macbook air's ( I have a late 2011 13 inch i5 with 256 gb ssd ) are really really nice!

Thank you guys, I just saw this - http://www.macrumors.com/2011/11/28/updated-macbook-air-line-with-new-15-inch-model-coming-in-1q-2012/

And thought that maybe they have some really big improvements coming.
