Intel is just releasing Haswell at Computex Taipei. Everybody seems to be expecting Apple to update its lines of laptops during WWDC which will kick off next week. The MacBook Air is supposed to be updated to feature the new processor, without a major redesign. The MacBook Air has been considered not only the predecessor of the ultrabooks, but also the "ultrabook killer", the one above all the others, and a redesign would be unnecessary. However, ultrabooks are catching up, with some great new models such as the Samsung Series 9 and the Dell XPS 13, both with a Full HD screen. And right now Computex Taipei is happening, with major manufacturers unveiling some very interesting machines that may put the MacBook Air to shame. First, Acer announced an updated Aspire S7, with a Haswell processor, an optional 2560x1440 IPS display, and a battery capable of running up to 7 hours under Windows 8. Then Asus showcased the jaw-dropping Zenbook Infinity, with Gorilla Glass 3, and 14% thinner than the previous Zenbook, and also featuring a screen resolution of 2560x1440. Finally, Dell announced the XPS 11, a convertible ultrabook made of carbon fiber with only 2.5 lbs, and an 11" screen capable of a 2560x1440 resolution. These three laptops were unveiled at Taipei this night, while we were sleeping at the Western hemisphere. They are not available now for sale, but they are already in the minds of tech enthusiasts. With these incredible laptops being showcased at Computex right now, perhaps Apple has a last chance to wow everybody, especially the media, during WWDC next week. If a brand-new MacBook Air is released only next year, it may come too late to take everyone aback. Given this stiff competition, will Apple keep the current MacBook Air line, without redesigning it, for another 200+ days? Or will it take advantage of the Haswell processors and make a MacBook Air with a thinner design and a retina display so it keeps up with competition? What do you think?
