Air could be due for imminent refresh
Third-party vendors are starting to run out of stock of the 13-inch MacBook Air, says AppleInsider. Amazon, B&H, MacConnection, and MacMall are all out of a common configuration, a system with a 1.8GHz processor and a 256GB SSD. Another reseller, J&R, is saying that it only has the configuration at retail stores. Best Buy continues to have some units.
Low third-party inventories are often a sign that Apple is preparing to update hardware. The company could potentially launch new Airs at WWDC, scheduled to start June 10th, especially since Intel should launch its Haswell processors shortly before then. Still uncertain is whether or not Apple is planning to include Retina displays among its upgrades, bringing the Air closer to par with the MacBook Pro.
