Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Apple's new MacBook Air will come with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD as its standard configuration, according to AppleInsider.
Checks indicate that all new 11.6- and 13.3-inch models will include 4GB of RAM as standard, as it will improve performance of Mac OS X Lion, also due to ship on each model.
Similarly, Kuo cited the same checks in suggesting that Airs with just 64GB solid-state-drives may go away in favor of Apple shipping only 128GB and 256GB models as standard, given that the bulk of Apple's shipments have been for models containing those larger drives. Contrary to some reports, however, the analyst and proven insider said his checks indicate the SSD drives will remain pluggable, and won't be soldered to the logic board.
The new MacBook Air is also expected to feature the Intel Sandy Bridge processor; as well as Thunderbolt connectivity. Kuo predicts we'll see the Core i5-2467M (1.6GHz), i7-2637M (1.7GHz), and i7-2677M (1.8GHz) being offered.
Apple will likely release the updated notebook alongside the release of Mac OS X Lion later this month.
