Report: Apple Almost Certainly Has New MacBook Airs To Show At WWDC

Compounding previous reports of global stock shortages of Apple’s slim-line MacBook Airs, plus the rumoured product numbers we saw the other day, now some leaked pricing supposedly points directly to a new MacBook Airs. 9to5Mac reports that it managed to get a sneaky peek at the pricing for the previously leaked SKUs, which confirms that they are indeed for four new MacBook Airs in a pair of spec levels for the two screen sizes, 11 inches and 13 inches.

The site also has it that the new MacBook Airs will come packing the new, faster Wi-Fi spec, 802.11ac, with supposedly some new Airport and Time Capsules on their way to support the next-generation wireless standard too.

Who knows whether all this is true or not -- treat with scepticism for now -- but it certainly looks probable. At least probable enough to warrant delaying a purchase of any new ultrabooks until after Apple’s keynote at WWDC on Monday evening next week. [9to5Mac]
