This year is the one of the 'small updates' for Apple computers and these updates have not added what many users expected, the new processor so that they are faster, more efficient and with less energy consumption. Intel's new processor called Broadwell that should have arrived a long time ago, was delayed, which is why Apple released a small update for the MacBook Pro a few days ago with the current Haswell processors adding some speed and more RAM on MacBook Pro Retina.
The MacBook Air last April but the new processor was not added either and now it seems that by the end of the year we could see the arrival of new MacBook Air models and even the Mac mini (the latter will have to renew soon) with the new Broadwells but in its less powerful version, the so-called Core M. These new processors with technology of 14 nanometers would be the first to arrive at Apple and could begin with the sales of the same by the Christmas dates.
The rest of the computers with these processors Broadwell but in its most powerful variant they will have to wait until the middle of next year to see them inside the Apple machines. Many of the analysts believe that the arrival of these processors will have a direct impact on the thickness of the machines in addition to the performance, but looking at the MacBook Air and its thickness it is difficult for us to see them thinner. On the other hand, the incorporation of these Broadwell in the MacBook would allow Apple to eliminate fans and therefore thickness, thanks to the efficiency dissipating heat.
It's time to wait for movements that only Apple knows about, but it is clear that Intel and its 14nm Broadwell is directly affecting the company of the bitten apple.
