Sandy Bridge MacBook Air update may come in June
CNET reported Thursday that Apple will release a MacBook Air with Intel's Sandy Bridge chip in June.
Apple would not confirm the report, though a summer MacBook Air refresh would be in line with its normal schedule. The Air has not received a substantial hardware upgrade since it launched three years ago.
The Sandy Bridge processor puts the graphics and main processor together, increasing speed.
The problems Intel has experienced with the Sandy Bridge processor's chipset should be fixed by the time the rumored release rolls around, as fixed chips are expected to ship sometime this month. That problem did not affect processor performance.
