Rumor: Apple to Refresh MacBook Air, MacBook Pro Next June

MacBook-Pro-LionAccording to DigiTimes and its Taiwanese supply chain sources, Apple is in discussions with its manufacturing partners overseas about revising its MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks to include new processors for release in June 2013. The industrial design of the notebooks is said to remain the same.

The report adds that ultrabook vendors are concerned, since Apple will likely discount the prices of its current lineup of MacBook Airs when it releases new models. Apple last refreshed the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro in June alongside the launch of the next-generation MacBook Pro with Retina display.

It is about the middle point of the typical release cycle for both the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, so you should only consider purchasing one of the notebooks if you are okay with having outdated hardware specifications in probably six months or less. Hint: WWDC 2013 next June.
