This morning Apple kicked off its annual WWDC developer's conference. As expected, during the keynote address, we saw a
new refreshed line of MacBook Air's make an appearance. The refreshed notebooks now feature the energy efficient Haswell processors from Intel.
The Air's now ship with Core i5 or Core i7 processor and are available with a 128GB or 256GB SSD. The 11.6-inch model is said to be good for 12 hours of use while the 13.3-inch can last up to 9 hours with continual use. The new models also feature 802.11ac Wi-Fi as well as Intel 5000 series HD Graphics.
Both models are available today on Apple's website with the 11.6-inch model starting at $999 for the 128GB version. The 13.6-inch model will begin at $1099 at the 128GB level and increase to $1299 for a 265GB model. At the moment all models feature a 1.3GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and those seeking the higher performance models will have to place a custom order.
