As usual, Apple is laying low amidst Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t making headlines. Since rumors about a 15-inch MacBook Air surfaced two weeks ago, more tipsters have provided info that suggests the 15-inch model will be a reality.
DigiTimes reports that, in addition to a 15-inch version, Apple will launch new 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch MacBook Airs in Q1 of 2012. According to DigiTimes’ sources, the addition of a 15-inch model marks Apple’s increased effort to compete against Windows-based Ultrabook vendors.
But that’s not all: Other sources claim that Apple will be lowering the price of its current MacBook air models before launching the next generation. And indeed, Best Buy is selling the 11.6-inch 64GB Air for a lower-than-usual $939.
