As we dive deeper into the summer months, the MacBook Air rumors seem to be heating up.

According to 9to5mac, Apple’s new 2011 MacBook Air refresh is due for a release as early as mid-July. The site cites recent online listings from Apple reseller Best Buy, who has supposedly listed multiple 2011 MBA models under the guise of 2010 MBA models into their system.

Additionally, the source claims that the 2011 MBA lineup will look practically the same compared to the 2010 models. This means users may have a hard time telling the models apart, aside from the reportedly new Thunderbolt port and logo on the to-be announced MacBook Air.

The new notebooks are also expected to debut with OS X Lion, making them even more attractive to Mac users.

The long-rumored 2011 MBA will likely ship with Intel’s latest ULV Sandy Bridge CPUs, but we will have to wait and see if Apple will even deliver on these speculations. The company currently has a financial conference call scheduled on July 19th, so our ears will definitely be open as we draw near mid-July.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
