Apple's MacBook Airs to get new "brains", but will keep the same bodies

Apple’s MacBook Air notebooks — which consist of an 11” and 13” model — are some of the best-selling notebook computers on the market. Priced from $999 for the 11” and $1,099 for the 13”, the computers strike a palatable balance between performance and weight.
 
According to 9to5Mac, the MacBook Airs will receive upgraded Haswell processors clocked between 1.4GHz and 1.5GHz, and of course increased overall performance. Apple is also expected to tweak the storage options available on the MacBook Air models.

 
Unfortunately, it appears that a processor upgrade is all that Apple lovers will receive tomorrow. The long-rumored Retina MacBook Air is nowhere to be found. Apple has really fallen behind the pack with regards to screen technology and resolutions on its two MacBook Air models — the 11” gets by with a 1366x768 display while the 13” isn’t much better at 1440x900.
 
In addition, the chassis design for the MacBook Air has barely changed in over three years. While many might suggest “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” we’re sure that Apple could perform a few nips and tucks to make the device even thinner and lighter in the face of stiff Ultrabook competition.
