Report: MacBook Air refresh coming in June or July

Taiwanese tech site Digitimes reported Wednesday that Apple is planning a MacBook Air refresh for June or July.

Citing Taiwan-based suppliers, the report says the new computers— an 11.6-inch model and a 13.3-inch model — will have Intel’s Sandy Bridge chips and Apple’s new Thunderbolt ports.

The timing is in line with previous reports about a Sandy Bridge MacBook Air refresh.

There’s been speculation that the new MacBook Air models will be 3G-enabled, after Apple Insider reported that Apple had been asking Air owners about how they use 3G networks.

The MacBook Air was last refreshed in October 2010, when the ultra-slim computers switched to a unibody design.
