Apple to release smaller MacBook Air? Thanks to quickly dwindling stock of the ultra-portable, the latest rumor is that Apple is preparing to launch a smaller 11.6-inch MacBook Air.
Current models, which are 13.3-inches and come in two models, have been reported out of stock almost everywhere, and Apple has not given a concrete timeframe for new stock.

Best Buy and Amazon have said that Apple will not ship them any new stock until at least the 12th.

Apple historically updates hardware, like their iMacs, in October.

Sources claim the new 11.6-inch model will run on an Intel Core i-series, and could weigh under 2.7 pounds.

About time they make a netbook, but you know they'll never admit to it being a netbook.

That's exactly the point, Joshewah. This one will be the Nth wheel reinvention coming from them being called something innovative.

So, as usual, Apple will sell "air" again, then people will buy it. Because, of course, Apple's "air" smells better.
