A new rumor is circulating that Apple is set to launch a new $799 MacBook Air in Q3 of this year. DigiTimes, one of our favorite source of Apple rumors, says that the tip had come from sources in upstream supply chain.
The cheap MacBook Air could pose a serious threat to Intel’s dreams of cheap ultrabooks becoming mainstream.
There are no details on the hardware the $799 MacBook Air might have. Right now Apple’s 11 inch 64 GB MacBook Air sells for $999 with a 128 GB version going for $1199. The machines go up in price from there.
There is a speculation that the 11-inch machine will drop to $799 or a new version with even less storage might hit the market.
