Apple is set to update the Macbook Air in June, with a move to Intel’s Sandy Bridge Processors.

The news comes from an anonymous source, cited by CNet on Friday. The report claims that Apple will replace the Core 2 Duo chip used in the current Macbook Air with Intel’s recently released processor.

Despite initial shipments of Sandy Bridge Processors stalling on January 31 due to a fault in the model’s accompanying chipset, Intel will resume shipping the revised chipsets in mid-February. The Sandy Bridge processor itself was unaffected by the fault.

As Macbook Air currently still uses the same processor technology introduced with its release three years ago, The Core 2 Duo chip is two generations behind Intel’s latest model. An update like this would be a popular and long awaited revision.
