The new laptops will now sport a 1.4Ghz Intel processor as compared to the 1.3Ghz processor that is currently available. Besides the bump in processor speeds not much else is slated to change, Apple has not mentioned if these faster processors will have any effect on the battery life. The Macbook Air has been the best selling laptop for the Cupertino based computer company.
Apple at a recent earnings call had slated that they were 'very close' to releasing a completely new product line. Many tech analysts believe it could be the long rumoured iWatch.
