Ultra-thin MacBook Air to get updated this week

Apple is to rollout the 2011 refresh of its ultra-thin range of MacBook Air laptops this Wednesday, renowned Apple leakster Chronic has claimed.

Expected to maintain the same minimalist form factor as the 2010 models, the mooted updates to the 11.6- and 13.3-inch ultra portable laptops are likely to see increased storage space on the machine’s solid-state drives and faster dual-core processors.

The latest claims follow recent reports that Apple has placed an order for 400,000 new MacBook Air machines to be produced during June with high sales expected to follow the refresh of the machine that measures in at a mere 30mm slim at its thickest point.

Will Apple officially unveil its new range of MacBook Air devices this week or are the continued reports and rumours wide of the super slim mark? Share your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
