Rumored MacBook Air Launch: Increased RAM, Larger SSD Next Week

Recent discussions across various platforms have been centered on the anticipated release of the latest MacBook Air model. According to AllThingsD, which cites multiple informed sources, the release of the MacBook Air is expected no earlier than late next week.

Confirmations from these sources also align with the ongoing speculations that the new MacBook Air will reintroduce backlit keyboards and include a Thunderbolt port along with upgraded Intel “Sandy Bridge” processors.

Additionally, the standard configurations are expected to start with a minimum of 128 GB SSD and 4 GB of RAM, an improvement from the previous 64 GB SSD and 2 GB RAM in the base model of the 11″ MacBook Air. This upgrade means that consumers might not need to pay extra for higher capacities and better performance.

It has been suggested that the MacBook Air’s hardware has been ready for release for some time.

However, the launch has been postponed until the release of the Lion operating system, which is also rumored to be scheduled for next week. This timing suggests that the predictions regarding the MacBook Air’s debut towards the end of next week could indeed be accurate.
