Although Apple is expected to reveal details on the Apple Watch at March 9th's 'Spring Forward' event, which Apple is already decorating for at its location in Yerba Buena, Apple is also expected to unveil a refreshed lineup of the MacBook Air, which will come with bumped up specs for better performance.

Although we typically learn of the hardware specs on the new machines at the Apple event, which will occur next Monday, Feng.com, a Chinese Forum, as reportedly gotten its hands on detailed screenshots that show off all of the details of the hardware bumps that will come inside of Apple's upcoming MacBook Air refresh.

The hardware that seems to be included in the machine the screenshots were taken on are as follows:

  • Dual-core Intel Broadwell Core i5 clocked at 1.6GHz
  • Intel HD Graphics 6000 with 1536 MB of graphics memory
  • 4GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1600 MHz
  • 7422mAh battery
  • Non-retina 13.3-inch 1440x900 resolution LCD display
  • 256GB solid state drive




There is no way to absolutely verify these specs as of yet, so it must be taken with a grain of salt. The bump is a small improvement over the existing models, but nothing to really scream about. We will know for sure next Monday what to expect, so stay tuned for more!
