MacBook Air expected at 'Back to the Mac' Apple event tomorrow

macbook-air-leak-01-top-300x224.jpgA new improved MacBook Air is predicted to be announced by Apple tomorrow, and rumors are heating up across the 'net in anticipation of Apple's "Back to the Mac" event which is widely expected to preview the next generation operating-system, Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion".

 

Pictured in this post is reportedly the innards of a prototype of the forthcoming MacBook Air.

 

So far, the rumor-mill is predicting that the MacBook Air will now come in two sizes: an existing 13" model, and a new 11.6" variant which may be the closest Apple comes to releasing a netbook, despite the fact that users have been happily running Mac OS X on their netbooks for quite some time!

 

Allegedly, the standard 1.8" storage bay which houses either an HDD or SSD will be replaced with an SSD card-based storage solution.

 

Pricing is also rumored to be addressed, with a more aggressive price-point, which has often been a major criticism of the relatively expensive existing models.

 

The new MacBook Air is also now reported to be even slimmer than the previous model, and no longer sports a port flap.
