More new Mac specs: MacBook Airs now come with 4GB RAM standard, go up to 8GB (Update: 512GB Air SSD option!)

We are just getting the latest news on the updated MacBook Airs. We hear they start at 4GB of RAM and go up to 8GB now on the high-end. Here are three Airs we have received word on thus far:

  • Base Model: MD223LL/A – MBA 11.6/1.7/4/64FLASH-USA
  • Better: MD224LL/A – MBA 11.6/1.7/4/128FLASH-USA
  • High End: MD845LL/A – MBA 11.6/2.0/8/256FLASH-USA

Update: We are now getting specs on the 13s:

  • MD231LL/A – MBAIR 13.3/1.8/4/128FLASH-USA
  • MD232LL/A – MBAIR 13.3/1.8/4/256FLASH-USA
  • MD846LL/A – MBAIR 13.3/2.0/8/512FLASH-USA

The bolded numbers are the RAM and would be a significant (and welcome) increase over the previous models.

We also bolded the “512GB SSD” on the high-end Air. As we said previously, these will be SATA 3 Solid State drives. At least some will also be based on Samsung’s 830 series—which are super fast.

We released information on MacBook Pros and Mac Pros earlier this morning.
