News / Mobile phones Report: Apple is gearing up to launch refreshed MacBook Air as inventory tightens

According to sources of Apple Insider, Apple has stopped sending out fresh shipments of certain MacBook Air models before their rumored refresh with Intel’s Broadwell processors later this month.

The company has also given retailers the green signal to sell certain 11″ and 13″ MacBook Air variants at a reduced price to get rid of the inventory. The company has not made any official statements to its retailers and distributors in the United States and Europe, but its actions clearly hint at the launch of a refreshed MacBook Air sometime soon.

Rumors have indicated that Apple plans on releasing the refreshed MacBook Air on February 24th with Intel’s latest Broadwell processor that feature a powerful inbuilt GPU and offer an even better power-to-performance ratio. The Cupertino company is also expected to unveil a 12-inch MacBook Air with an edge-to-edge display in the first quarter of 2015, but it is unlikely that it will a major new device without holding a press event.

If you don’t care about Intel’s Broadwell processors or buying an up-to-date model, now will be the perfect time to grab the existing 11″ and 13″ MacBook Air(s) being sold by Apple as it is offering them at discounts of anywhere between $100-$250.
