Now that the announcement of a brand new Macbook Air during the ‘Back to Mac‘ event on October 20th, a mere formality, more purported specs are making the rounds, courtesy Cult of Mac.


New Macbook Air Specs & Features

Below is the expected/rumored specifications & features of the New Macbook Air notebook.

  • 11.6-inch model
  • 2.1 GHz and 2.4 GHz processor options
  • 8-10 hours of battery life (vs. a “claimed” 5 hours in the current model)
  • NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics
  • Upgradeable RAM (2 GB base) and SSD options
  • New thinner case design
  • An SD card slot, two USB ports, standard MagSafe port and Mini DisplayPort

New Macbook Air Pricing

The new Macbook Air is rumored to be considerably cheaper than the current Macbook Air’s $1,500 starting price. The 11.6 inch version may be priced as low as $999, while the 13 inch version might cost $1100. The source points out that the 64GB iPad starts at $700, and the MacBook Air doesn’t have many more components.

This looks really exciting. Not often that Apple has failed to keep its announcement a secret, but I hope the rumors turn out to be true.
