Apple updates the MacBook Air, intros "high end" model

Lovers of all things tech and trim, rejoice as Apple has updated its svelte MacBook Air. A $300 price drop puts the new budget model MacBook Air at $1,499 while still coming in with a relatively impressive 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 9400M graphics card and 120GB HDD. Also new is a more “high end” MBA which starts off with the same amount of RAM and graphics card except the processor clocks in at 2.13GHz and in lieu of spinning hard-disk drive you get a 128GB SSD. It will retail for $1,799. Yeah you read right; that’s a $700 drop in price. Congrats to Apple on maintaining that ridiculous margin for as long as it did.
