Cult of Mac Suggests New MacBook Air Refresh is Imminent

There’s independent confirmation from Cult of Mac that Steve Jobs will be introducing a redesigned 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch MacBook Air with a bigger battery and another port…or two or three.

Cult of Mac’s information comes after repeated reports from technology websites detailing spy shots and particular patents that suggest a refresh to the wafer-thin computer is on its way.

Apparently, the new model also has a faster processor, a 50-percent bigger battery, and is thinner and lighter than its predecessor. The model will also come with two USB ports, an SD card slot and a Mini DisplayPort adapter. The new machine may also cost anywhere from ,100 to ,400 for the respective models.

Well, we’ll find out Wednesday if Cult of Mac’s information is, indeed, on par with Apple’s plans for the MacBook Air. Tell us readers: would you be open to the idea of a MacBook Air refresh? Do you think this one will do better than the latter model?
