Apple will launch OS X Lion later today and it will be available from the Mac App Store, this means that the new MacBook Air’s which we have been hearing about over the last few weeks should also launch soon.
Now it would appear that the specifications on the new 2011 MacBook Air’s have been leaked and we already knew that the new Air’s would feature Intel’s Thunderbolt technology, and it looks like they will also come with the option of Intel’s Core i5 and Core i7 processors.
There will be two different models available, the same as last year one with an 11.6 inch display and one with a 13.3 inch display, have a look at the specifications below which were obtained by the guys from 9 To 5 Mac.

A built to order model will also be available from the online store. This option includes a 1.8 GHz processor (first for an 11.6 inch MacBook Air), 4GB of RAM, and for the first time in an 11.6 inch MacBook Air, 256 GB of flash storage.
