It seems the new MacBook Air and the new OS X Lion from Apple will be launched at the same time next week (probably on 14th of July), rumors say. So Apple will ship the new Macs along with Lion.
It makes sense, because the new OS X Lion will bring plenty of enhancements and new features, that complements very well the new Macbook Air, including iCloud services, iOS-style Launchpad, full-screen apps, Mission Control that comes up with a three-finger swipe, automatic tracking of document version history, and a resume feature that picks up where the user left off. Lion will only be available via Apple’s Mac App Store only for just $30. Many users with multiple Macs may need to take note of instructions here to help ease the installation process.
The MacBook Air refresh will probably include 19nm 400Mbps mSATA. The mSATA connector allows a flash drive to be slotted directly on to the motherboard taking up very little space, reaching speeds of 400Mbps while using less power. The MacBook Air refresh will come with the new Thunderbolt, the fastest I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port. Also the processors will be upgraded to the latest Sandy Bridge microprocessors and integrated Intel graphics: Core i5 and i7.
If you’re thinking about buying a Mac or a MacBook, wait for a few more days. I know I will 🙂 .
