Time For New Hardware? My Apple Predictions for June 15th 2011

I wanted to quickly give my thoughts and predictions on Apple and what I think might be released or announced tomorrow, June 15th 2011.

Firstly, Apple’s MacBook Air. There is a lot of talk about this and I think it is about time for an upgrade. Here is what I’d like to see in the 3rd generation MacBook Air:

– Higher resolution display
– larger SSD (512gb +)
– backlit keyboard
– upgraded processor (i3, i5)
– option to upgrade to 6GB or 8GB of RAM
– one or two Thunderbolt ports.

I don’t think all of this is a reasonable guess but it is all possible. You never know what to expect with Apple.

One thing to note about the MacBook Air that makes me think they will update before OS X Lion is, in all of Apple’s demo videos of OS X Lion they use not just any MacBook but the MacBook Air. I think the MacBook Air is one of Apple’s favourite computers and the way the future of Macintosh computing might be.

 

It is said to be exactly one year since the last time the Mac Mini was updated. My thoughts for the Mac Mini are quite similar. More RAM, Thunderbolt, better processor (i3 or i5) etc.

I can’t wait to see what Apple announces. I think tomorrow will be an Apple lover’s lucky day.
