It should be noted, first off, that DigiTimes has a relatively poor track record with this type of thing. But regardless of how solid their information is, there's no question that the timing is right for a MacBook Air refresh. Apple's left their ultraportable unattended since 2008. And while its competitors are jumping on Intel's ULV Core processors to crank out thinner, faster competitors, Apple's offering in the thin and light space looks downright outmoded. And given that Apple historically refreshes its Macbooks around October, the timing is right.
