Just the upgrade to ivy bridge will be significant.Does anyone know if Apple are set to release a new MacBook Air? if so... any rumours regarding new design or purely a inside refresh?
My predictions that are based on 100% speculation:Just the upgrade to ivy bridge will be significant.
Many of us are expecting ( or at least hoping for ):
1) usb 3.0
2) a higher resolution display
3) a higher max memory size
My predictions that are based on 100% speculation:
not necessarily since that both aint competing techs.1) Won't happen. Apple is clearly backing thunderbolt and purposely ignoring USB 3.0. Don't ask for reasoning, it's just the obvious direction of the ship.
there are rumors about the intro of retina displays in the mac world, aside the ipad and iphone2) Won't happen. It's already the same resolution as the base 15" MBP. Any higher and the pro won't seem so pro anymore. Unless of course they update the MBP to an even higher resolution display. Even then, I don't see them changing the display in any significant way until a major revamp. I think they will make the MBP more 'pro' before upgrading the MBAs much.
I do hope so too, since that I want to grab a mba next year or when haswell comes out, since I dont anymore the cpu performance of the mbp3) This better happen, I bought a 4GB 2011 MBA but my number 1 concern was RAM. It barely squeaked by in 2011, it will not squeak by again in 2012 or 2013.
