more MacBook Air predictions

MacBook Air

Continue with my previous prediction on upcoming MacBook Air, major Mac rumour sites have quite a few new speculations. Somehow, my “prediction” from my reliable source does not agree exactly with popular rumour sites.

I stated following in my earlier entry:
The upcoming MacBook Air will have Intel Core i5 CPU at speed 1.something GHz range, 2GB to 4GB RAM, and the size of storage? 64GB, 128GB or 256GB. OS X Lion for sure.

I think it's about time to get more precise. The 11-inch model will be slightly heavier than current (late 2010) 11-inch model by 0.02 kg, and the 13-inch model will be slightly heavier than current (late 2010) model by 0.03 kg. What a bugger!

The 11-inch model will be 1.6GHz Intel Core i5, and 13-inch model will feature 1.7GHz Intel Core i5.
The RAM is also faster, using 1333MHZ DDR3 SDRAM (instead of 1066MHz DDR3 on late 2010 models).
Same storages as late 2010 models, according to my sources.
Oh, FaceTime camera built-in.

Of course, my source could be wrong.

We shall expect Bluetooth 4.0 in the upcoming MacBook Airs. Currently, Apple only ship with Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.

Don't worry Don, the upcoming MacBook Air won't be faster (clockspeed-wise) than your laptop running at 2.0GHz (64bit, dual-core), and unlikely to beat your 11 hours battery time (at a cost of additional 5.2 kg for the external battery).

And I have decided the replacement for my 3+ years old 15-inch MacBook Pro, which has been proven to be way too heavy (2.45 kg, 5.4 pounds) to carry around.

Antony is poor.
