Apple will not be giving up on the MacBook Air just yet, they have announced the new the Air to be released late November. The Air will be coming as standard with a 120GB HDD together with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M video card, mini Display Port and 2GB of RAM. There will also be the option of a 128GB SSD.
It seems Apple has not lowered the price of the MacBook Air. The prices will be $1799 for the MacBook Air with 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo processor, and $2499 for the Macbook Air with a 1.86GHz CPU and 128Gb SSD.
This is a worthy upgrade to the Air without marking up the price. This still begs the question as to whether the problems users were having with the first MacBook Air will be resolved. It seems with the MacBook Pro being so thin there is a lot less of a difference between the two.
