Okay. So the new MacBooks are like two days away now. But what is really going to happen. Seriously, Apple will not release a new MacBook Air. Come on people. Start thinking realistic here. The MacBook Air was only released recently in Feburary. It’s not Apple convention to update a product line’s hardware in less than a year. Furthermore, it’ll make all those early adopters feel like morons. So what is going to be the fate of the MacBook Air. Let’s discuss this further.
In terms of hardware, I think Apple has struck a fine balance between performance and power consumption. Until either sees huge tecnical advances, the update seems like a distant dream. The new NVDIA chipset sounds promising, but they still take up too much power. And remember, Apple had Intel build a special Core 2 Duo for them. With such a close partnership, I do not see Apple rushing Intel into any more developmental impossibilities just yet. However, I do forsee an update of the line when we finally hit a release date with Montervina.
So owners of the MacBook Air, I see no worries for you guys in this Apple event. Hold on to see some spectacular improvements to the other machines in the line though. What do you think will be launched on the 14th? Leave us your comments.
