In case you missed this story amid the hustle and bustle of last week's news, Apple has scheduled a keynote event for Wednesday, October 20 at 10:00 AM Pacific. According to the Mac rumor mill, that 11.6" MacBook Air we've been hearing about is sure to make an appearance.
AppleInsider first wrote about the event last Wednesday, but it posted another story on Friday afternoon with unofficial confirmation of the 11.6" MacBook Air's imminent arrival. Quoting "several independent sources," the site says the new Air has been in production for "at least a week now." The machine has reportedly been redesigned from scratch with a more "wedge-shaped" chassis and solid-state storage as standard. AppleInsider also talks of a "more attractive entry-level price point"—that would be long overdue, since the current Air is just a wee bit overpriced at $1,499.
Apple might have other goodies up its sleeve on Wednesday. The official invite for the event shows a metallic Apple logo rotated slightly to reveal what looks like a lion. Considering Apple's propensity for naming OS X releases after wild cats, and the title of the event—"Back to the Mac"—AppleInsider and other sources are expecting to catch a glimpse of Mac OS X 10.7.
