what specs do you expect with the new MBA? The MacBook Air has not seen an update for 13 months now so is overdue for some new hardware. Apple fans will have a specs wish list, hardware. Apple fans will have a specs wish list, so let us look at the last update to see if we can formulate what Apple will do this year. The first and most obvious change would be to its CPU, the basic model went from 1.6 to 1.86GHz, with the next model going from 1.86 to 2.13GHz. It seems likely that Apple will increase the processor to 2.6GHz, at least. The craziest thing about the update was in its price, it saw a price drop of $700. Do now expect a price reduction this time round, but The Apple Blog assumes that Apple could stick with the 1.86GHz, on the base model but offer the NVIDIA GeForce 320M GPU. The more powerful MacBook Air could come with an energy-efficient 2GHz Intel Core i7 chip but sticking with integrated graphics. How much ram, hardrive do you expect? Type of graphics card? Any other features...OLED screen? Do state your minimum and maximum realistic specs to be realeased in the next Model if that be a 11.6" or a 13.3"
