    1.2 Million MacBook Airs Sold Over the Holidays


    AppleInsider reports that Apple is believed to have sold 1.2 million MacBook Airs in the December 2011 quarter, representing an increase of 200,000 compared to the September quarter, according to Digitimes. AppleInsider says that this makes Apple the only notebook-selling company that was able to preserve its total notebook shipments from the third to fourth quarter in calendar 2011. AppleInsider also notes that these strong sales come at a time when Apple is rumoured to be about to release an upgraded line of MacBook Airs complete with Intel’s forthcoming next-gen Ivy Bridge processor. Other manufacturers, such as Lenovo, Acer and Toshiba, are also looking to release their own versions of the MacBook Air, so-called “Ultrabooks”, which AppleInsider says will also have Ivy Bridge processors, but will most likely be priced $50 to $100 below a comparable MacBook Air. We can expect to see and hear a lot about these Ultrabooks at CES, including the likes of the ultra-thin Aspire S5 Ultrabook from Acer, which weighs under 3 pounds and is just 15mm thick compared to the MacBook Air, which is 17mm thick.
