Apple's MacBook Air line of laptops have been subjected to quite a craze from fans over the past few years, mostly because of their great build, performance and the Apple tag. However, it seems like the Air series of MacBooks will soon get a considerable update for its processors.
According to reports generated via a source going all up, close and personal with 9To5Mac related to the new changes, a brand new leaked image has appeared on the web showing that Apple is indeed planning on upgrading the processor for the MacBook Air line up.
The brand new leaked image was revealed to the site recently with the new label also representing the new entry-level 13-inch model, "and the only noticeable change is that the computer will now have a 1.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz," states the report.
For the sake of comparison, current standard 13-inch MacBook Air models come with a 1.3GHz processor and Turbo Boost up to 2.6GHz. For that matter, the new leak also indicates that the usual design and weight of the MacBook Air will be retained for this refresh.
While nothing has made official by the company related to a possible processor upgrade for the MacBook Air line of laptops, but it is massively expected that Apple will push out similar small boosts across the standard MacBook Air lineup.
Also, the built-to-order models are said to be moving from 1.7GHz to 1.8GHz), although not much else coming to the line until the Retina Display models ship later this year.
Apple is already expected to release a new range of MacBook Airs by this week, according to multiple sources. These sources have also mentioned about how the shipments of new MacBook Airs have begun arriving in large quantities to Apple Stores across the country.
More details on this are expected to arrive with the final release of the upgraded MacBook Airs.
