MacBook Air Sandy Bridge refresh tipped for June

Apple is reportedly planning to refresh its MacBook Air ultraportable with Sandy Bridge processors in June, delayed slightly due to the chipset issues Intel has experienced. CNET's sources haven't disclosed which exact processors in Intel's Core 2011 range will used, though the update is expected to follow a MacBook Pro Sandy Bridge refresh in March or April.

Back in December, rumors circulated that Apple had been conducting testing on the Sandy Bridge chips, and was planning to use Intel's onboard graphics for its entry-level MacBook and ultraportable MacBook Air lines. MacBook Pro notebooks, meanwhile, would offer a choice of integrated and discrete AMD Radeon GPUs.
