Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt Equipped MacBook Air Coming June or July

DigiTimes is reporting a late June or early July refresh of the impossibly thin MacBook Air line. This report is in line with what we heard a month ago.

The new models will feature Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors, bringing them in line with the MacBook Pro and iMac lines updated earlier this year. The Air will also feature the Thunderbolt I/O, giving it a 10Gbps interface with 6 separate channels, including enough bandwidth to drive an external display. Doesn’t this pretty much make the MacBook “Nothing” a lame duck?

Perhaps we will see these unveiled at WWDC in a few weeks with Steve Jobs pulling an Oprah on the attendees: “and you get a MacBook Air, and you get a MacBook Air!”

     What are the chances that Lion ships with this? I am patiently waiting for Lion before I get my first ever MacBook Pro/Air 🙁 Hurry please! 

    1. @twitter-23972829:disqus I’d say chances are pretty good this will ship with Lion. The timing coincides with a WWDC announcement in a few weeks. And we already know WWDC is going to focus on iOS 5 and OS X Lion, so it’s a perfect opportunity for to push out the Air with a brand spankin’ new OS.
