As rumored in the past day, Apple has updated the MacBook Air with new Intel Haswell processors while slashing the price by $100. The base 11- and 13-inch Air models now sport 1.4GHz Core i5 chips, up from 1.3GHz on the previous model. The 11-incher starts at $899, while the 13-inch is $999, and the price drop also affects the 256GB models, which now sell for $1,099 and $1,199.
The new MacBook Air models are also available from Apple's Canadian and U.K. stores, though the Canadian store's prices don't appear to have been lowered at the time of writing.
