ThisIsMyNext: "Come on, you knew this one was coming! As expected, Apple’s finally gone ahead and refreshed both the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Airs with fresh Intel Core 2011 silicon, Thunderbolt ports, and backlit keyboards. The 11-inch model, which still starts at $999, now has a base 1.6GHz Core i5 processor (a big bump from its previous 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo), 2GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid state drive. It’s a real solid package for a grand, and Apple’s so confident in it that it’s killing off the regular white MacBook. Of course, those willing to put down an extra $200 can up the config to 4GB of RAM and a 128GB drive."
