Here is another great news. In fact its more rumor than a news. Looks like Apple is going to refresh and upgrade the current series of MacBook Air. Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has told that Apple is ready for mass production of upgraded Mac Book Air series. Just like the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air is also going to be equipped with Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge Microprocessors integrrated with Intel graphics. Not only processor upgrade, Air series will also get Thunderbolt USB port.

According to the report:

In moving to Intel’s 32-nanometer (nm) Sandy Bridge architecture, the mid-2011 MacBook Airs will jettison two-year-old Penryn-based 45-nm Core 2 Duo chips for the chipmakers’ new line (below) of low-voltage and ultra-low-voltage Core i5 and Core i7 chips, which sport between 3MB and 4MB of Smart Cache and support a theoretical maximum of 8GB of internal system memory.
