New MacBooks Airs with Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt in June or July

As expected, new MacBooks Airs are going into production later this month for a June or July launch month. The news from Digitimes says that new Apple’s ultra-slim notebooks will pack Sandy Bridge processors – as recently launched in the new MacBook Pros and iMacs – in addition to Apple and Intel’s new Thunderbolt I/O platform. Apple’s current line of MacBooks Airs include both 11.6 and 13.3 inch models. Because the current design was debuted late last year, we believe that the new Airs will simply be a spec upgrade, as rumored.
