Reports speak of RAM being doubled from 2 GB to 4 GB, ahead of Mac OS Lion release.
The internet is rife with reports on the goodies lined up for MacBook Air‘s impending update. The inbuilt SSD drive is expected to be doubled from 64 GB to 128 GB, up to a maximum of 256 GB for the high end models. The default RAM configuration of 2 GB will also be doubled to 4 GB in anticipation of the impending Mac OS Lion. This is especially remarkable because this upgrade is worth $100 (Rs 4500 approx) otherwise. Other improvements to the new MacBook include a back-lit keyboard, a claimed battery life of 7 hours, latest Sandy Bridge based Intel processors, upgraded graphics, and the much touted Thunderbolt interface. The new MacBook Air range is expected to release at the end of next week.
