Taking the Macbook Air in as family to every Apple fanboy (and non-fanboy) has been quite hard. In a few days, a new version of the OS X operating system will at least be previewed, if not announced and shipped. Along with that, the possibility of refreshed Macs and an 11.6-inch version of the Macbook Air, with a Core 2 Duo processor (boo!), have glass trackpads, and an aggressive price. At the moment, th only 11-inch laptop out there that really sells is the Alienware M11x, which is one of the most perfect laptops ever created, available in Core 2 Duo and up to Core i7 options with 6 hours of battery life at the least, and in the newer models, Optimus graphics switching.
If a new Macbook Air with an 11.6-inch screen, “aggressive” pricing, and the simple satisfaction of owning a Mac was offered, then everyone would go bonkers. And it would be the iPad all over again. I can see myself as a customer already. Over at AppleInsider, they have a full spec sheet (or close to one).
Mobility and Apple mix; starting with iPhone, continuing with iPad, boosted by Air. A cheap Macbook Air would sell. It’s just so simple.
