Sandy Bridge MacBook Airs inbound
Faster sub-notebooks in June, says mole
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.
The roll-out of Sandy Bridge-based systems was recently disrupted by a chipset glitch  affecting the platform's Sata storage support.
The bug is being fixed , but it will knock back the released of anticipated Sandy Bridge machines like the MacBook Pro revamp World+Dog expects to take place during the next month or two. ®
