It’s finally that time of year where Macbooks get updated, and this time it’s the Macbook Air line. The new 11-inch model priced at $999 (and kills off the old, white Macbook) comes with a new 1.6GHz Core i5 processor (a big bump from the last-gen’s 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo), 2GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid state drive. The larger and more spacious (to say the least) 13-inh 1,299 base model now boasts a 1.7GHz Core i5 processor (up from a sucky last-gen Core 2 Duo), 4GB of RAM (up from 2GB), and a 128GB SSD. Give Apple $1,699 and you’ll grab a 1.8GHz Core i7 processor and 256GB of space, if you want. All the new Macbook Airs contain backlit keyboards, Mac OS X Lion (which also launches today), and a Thunderbolt port for super fast data transfers. PR after the chop, folks.
