Report: Apple's Almost Certainly Got New MacBook Airs For Us at WWDC

By Sam Gibbs on at

Compounding previous reports of global stock shortages of Apple's slim-line MacBook Airs, plus the rumoured product numbers we saw the other day, now some leaked pricing supposedly points directly to a new MacBook Airs. If you're looking at buying an ultrabook, don't do it until after Monday evening's WWDC keynote next week.

9to5Mac reports that it managed to get a sneaky peek at the pricing for the previously leaked SKUs, which confirms that they are indeed for four new MacBook Airs in a pair of spec levels for the two screen sizes, 11 and 13-inch.

The site also has it that the new MacBook Airs will come packing the new, faster Wi-Fi spec, 802.11ac, with supposedly some new Airport and Time Capsules on their way to support the next-generation wireless standard too.

Who knows whether all this is true or not -- treat with extreme scepticism for now -- but it certainly looks probable. At least probable enough to warrant delaying a purchase of any new ultrabooks until after Apple's keynote at WWDC on Monday evening next week. [9to5Mac]
