Apple will update its MacBook Air family of ultra-skinny laptops with Intel's second-generation Core i chips in Q2.

A mole said to be familiar with Apple's plans whispered to Cnet that the update will come in June.

The 11.6in and 13.3in Air currently contain Core 2 Duo CPUs and Nvidia chipsets. Switching to Sandy Bridge processors would allow Apple to modernise the line's processor and use cheaper Intel graphics without too much of a performance hit.
