    i highly doubt the 13 will have a dgpu.

    But I love these speculative threads.

    Cant see that being even close to legitimate.

    A man can dream though...it would truly be unbelievable.

    And the fact that they are called "MacBooks" yet still have the black MacBook Air logo lasered into them.

    To be honest I'm glad its not real, if that was ever released I dont know how long I could last before the bank balance took a hit!

    Gosh, I hope this new 15" "Air" actually starts lower than $1799...

    I shouldn't bite, still less respond......but that is a very impressive display of utterly irresistible temptation. Nicely done, OP. ;)

    Personally, I don't like that color at all.

    But a better battery time would not hurt. The battery in the 11" is extremely bad.

    There would really be no need for a 13" Pro. In fact, for the most part, a 13" Pro isn't needed right now either. It is more affordable however.

    Hahaha

    NO

    sorry but just not happening this price point maybe. Maybe thinner mbp but a MBA is just too thin to even have that graphics card in it also the upgrade from 11inch to 13inch is so little but is almost double performance increase

    I don't mind the colour actually. The specs would be nice but only time will tell what really will be tossed into there. Still looking forward to the update, my wife is really annoying the hell out of me stealing my MBA when I'm not around.

    It would be nice if they could fit 8GB of RAM into that 15 incher....

    The MBA could have a dedicated GPU if clocked right. Also software switching will need to be spot on. Although, i would take a downclocked GPU vs a HD 3000/4000.

    Who knows.. nVidia could have been cooking up something quietly for Apple.

    I literally lol'd at the dedicated GPUs.

    If only we were able to do that :p

    Remove the dedicated GPU's. Switch the quad core processors for dual cores and divide the battery life by half and then your looking at a more realistic upgrade...

    Yes the image is very fake :) just did it for fun.

    I just edited the macbook air page with 'inspect element' and darkened the edges of the macbooks a bit with PS.

    I'm note quite sure if it's possible this way but:
    - Increased battery life because of ivy bridge (and bigger battery in 15")
    - Don't know if the quad core's are possible but i think they will remove the macbook pro (except maybe the 17") and they can't downgrade
    - Not sure if the GT555 is possible but its small and has TDP around 35
    - Maybe there will be a redesign, i like a darker color :)
    - Prices won't go down because of the SSD's

    Stop the press! Quad core with separate GPU would cause a massive heat problem in the current form factor. FAIL!
