Next MacBook Air to get Ram, SSD, CPU boost
Release rumours rescheduled
Apple's next 11.6in MacBook Airs will incorporate 128GB SSDs across the range and arrive with 4GB of memory as standard. They'll debut late next week.
The 13.3in model, which already comes with a 128GB SSD, will get the Ram boost too.
The spec suggestion comes from Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who told the stock broker's clients he thinks the new machines will sport 1.6GHz Core i5-2467M, 1.7GHz Core i7-2637M and 1.8GHz Core i7-2677M processors, AppleInsider relays.
Separately, moles cited by AllTHingsD say the new Airs will debut late next week with backit keyboards - the current ones lack this MacBook Pro standard feature - and the Thunderbolt monitor/peripheral port.
Apple is believed to be waiting for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion's debut before it releases new machines, with the new OS inconveniently failing to meet its rumoured 14 July release. Flippin' Apple - why doesn't it listen to the bloggers? ®
I for one am very excited about this. Have been considering an 11" air but was specking it up to 4Gb RAM and 128Gb SSD, so if this now comes as standard (hopefully without a price increase!) then happy days :-)

News Alert!! news Alert!!
Speculation has it that new laptop model will have faster CPU, more storage and more RAM!!
3G modem already
The only thing that prevents an air being a great on the go notebook is the lack of a 3G modem option. Dongles just don't cut it from either an aesthetics or convenience or reception point of view.
