That a new MacBook Air is coming, there is practically no doubt. I just think the numbers cited today by DigiTimes a little too exaggerated: according to them, Apple would be preparing to sell about 8 million (!) of MacBooks Air in the third quarter of this year.
According to sources in production chains in Asia, Apple's suppliers would be preparing to enter full capacity starting in July. This would take production from 2.2-2.4 million units currently to 2.7-2.8 million in the following month.
In the second fiscal quarter of this year, Apple shipped a total of 3.76 million Macs. How she would double that number * s with MacBooks Air * from quarter to quarter, I don't know. The sources of DigiTimes they also increased their overall MacBook sales forecasts for 2011, from 13 million to 15 million units.
It is speculated that the new Airs will come with Intel ?Sandy Bridge? processors, Thunderbolt ports, OS X Lion pre-installed and maybe even a lower price than the current one. In other words: guaranteed success, only in d to do miracles.
