With only five days until Apple’s Back to Mac press event, the rumors are flying in thick and fast. Speculation around Apple’s refreshed MacBook Air is growing daily, and there are some new reports that just surfaced. Earlier in the week, the 11.6-inch display rumor popped up again, but last night, Engadget received some photos on what they believe to be an early prototype for the new MacBook Air. Except… the unit pictured in the photo seems to house a 13.3″ screen. Additionally, the machine appears to run the same under-powered Core 2 Duo seen in the current generation, though it is possible since the laptop was not in final form, the internals have been upgraded.
Earlier in the week, Apple Insider rumored that the new MacBook Air computer would contain no conventional hard disk drive or solid-state drive. The new Air would supposedly opt for a high capacity “SSD card” instead. AppleInsider has also followed up on their original report with some new information, and from what one of their sources is telling them, Apple will actually launch both rumored models — 11.6″ and 13.3″ display notebooks.
So guys, is this the new MacBook Air we are looking at?
