Could This Be The Redesigned 2011 MacBook Air?

What looks like a totally new redesigned MacBook Air graphic has been recentely leaked in between the cracks of all the rumors that have been circling around in these recent weeks. M.I.C Gadget reports that it got a tip from a source at Foxconn, the manufacturing plant in China that produces Apple's desired gadgets, and they believe that it is the real deal. From the pic, it looks like Apple has redesigned the hinge and the external enclosure quite a bit from the current 2010 unibody MacBook Air. Further more, who ever leaked the image has also said the new 2011 MacBook Air is thinner and much lighter. It would be typical of Apple making the MacBook Air even thinner. The pic only reveals one side which shows an SD card slot and nothing else. Apple is expected to release an updated MacBook Air very soon, but a total redesign wasn't really anticipated. 


Apple To Offer $100 iTunes Gift Cards In This Week's Back To School Promo

Apple is said to be launching its Back to School promotion this week with a big surprised to those who came accustomed to this yearly promotion. Instead of giving away free iPods to students who purchase a qualifying Mac under the educational discount program, this year Apple will swap out the free iPod for a free $100 iTunes gift card. Typically Apple has initiated the Back to School promotion and offered a free iPod with a Mac purchase for students in a strategic move to clear out inventory of iPods and make room for new models which Apple later on announces. If Apple does indeed switch to offering $100 iTunes gift cards to its student in this years Back to School promotion, it will certainly be a letdown for those who planned on scoring a free 8GB iPod Touch 4G which retails for $229. Well, at least you can download $100 worth of music, movies and TV shows on your brand new Mac.
