People in the market for a MacBook Air might have noticed that it’s a bit difficult to get a unit of the popular 13-inch laptop. The supplies for the laptop have been drying up and while this might be alarming to some, those who’ve been following Apple through the years know that this might herald the release of a new and revamped line, especially with the company’s World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) just several weeks away.
The 13-inch MacBook Air is one of Apple’s fast shifting models, with its 1.8 GHz processor and 256 GB drive. Most shops have listed the product as out of stock and the only retailer still selling the model is Best Buy. However, resellers appear to have ample supplies of the 11-inch version of the MacBook Air.
The fact that units of a popular device are running low at a time when Apple is slated to host a big conference has fueled rumours that a new MacBook Air will soon be unveiled next month. Reports have pegged the new model to be powered by Intel’s new Haswell processors, which are touted to be more energy efficient, will create less heat and have a longer battery life. The chips also boast of a 50% improved performance due to its new graphics processor. Stay tuned.
