Apple to Announce 15-Inch MacBook Air Soon?


This rumor has to be consumed with a massive bucket of salt, but the potential prospects could have plenty of Apple fanboys swooning in anticipation.

A random blog based out of China with “a debatable track record” is saying tha Apple is currently working on a 15-inch version of the MacBook Air, bringing the super slim design up to another notch on the scale. This almost goes against the whole point of the MacBook Air in the first place, since it was supposed to be thin, light, and small.

Even so, veterans of the MacBook Pro line, for instance, have grown far too accustomed to having a 15.4-inch display, so “downgrading” to a 13.3-inch MacBook Air can suffer some unfortunate consequences. Expanding the range into 15-inch territory, the transition may be a little easier on the eyes.

The specs appear to be much the same with an ultra-low voltage version of the Core 2 Duo processor to keep things pumping along. The Chinese blog, Apple Pro, has been hit and miss with its predictions and forecasts in the past, so we can’t say for sure how accurate this current report will be.

Personally, I think a 13.3-inch version of the MacBook Pro would be a better idea. I know more than a couple of people who would be interested in the increased power and decreased size offered by such a proposition.
