Default Apple MacBook Air to receive Intel Sandy Bridge upgrade in June

Having vanquished its Dell Adamo competitor, Apple’s MacBook Air ultraportable laptop will get a performance boost in June, according to our sister site CNET.

After using Intel’s Core 2 Duo processors since its launch, the svelte notebook will be updated to the latest Sandy Bridge CPUs, which should allow the MacBook Air to run faster and eek out even more battery life. This update should follow the long-awaited upgrade to the MacBook Pros with beefier Sandy Bridge processors, supposedly due next month.

While the MacBook Pro refresh could be delayed as part of the fallout from the flaw found in the chipset used with Sandy Bridge CPUs, the June timeline for the MacBook Air update shouldn’t be affected.
