Hi,

Am a newbie here. I am contemplating to get a MBA 11 inch. Does anyone knows or heard any rumors on any new MBA launching this year?

I have a MBA 13 inch and i bought the first gen just few weeks before the new gen is launched.:mad: Don't want to be a victim again.....

Thanks in advance.

New MBAs are rumoured to be released between April and July 2012. Nothing specific is known , though a delay by Intel can push that into June:

Keep an eye on this buyer's guide... it's nothing definitive regarding future releases, but it's a fairly good source to gauge your purchases around

Hey Guys

Thanks. This is great stuff. Much appreciated.

Lots of emphasis on Ivy Bridge chip for the Pro and maybe MBA 13/14". Any idea whether MBA 11" will be considered for the new chip?

If the MBA 13" gets an IB chip I'd imagine the 11" will as well.

We are also in the market for a MBA and waiting for the new release. My wife just got an email from News@InsideApple.Apple.com advertising the MacBook Air. They're very careful to not say "New" but seem to imply that it is. I went to the Apple Store and everything looks the same to me (I haven't looked in a couple months). Could this be a sign that Apple is trying to clear out old inventory before the new release?

I received the same email. It's the current MBA... When they release a new one trust me you will know.
