Apple's upcoming line of MacBook ultrabooks will receive a new processor, according to sources close to tech site Digitimes (via CNET).

"The sources noted that pressure on ultrabook vendors mainly comes from the Air's price since Apple is likely to reduce the prices for its existing MacBook Airs before the launch of the new models which could take away demand for ultrabooks," the report explains.

While no official details about the processor have been released, CNET suggests that the fourth generation Core Haswell processor may be a logical choice for the next MacBook series.

Notably, no changes have been made to the "industrial design" of the device, so don't expect a complete overhaul of the Cupertino-based company's device.

The current high-end Macbook Air runs the Mountain Lion OS X and features a 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with 3MB shared L3 cache, 4Gb of 1600MHz DDR3L onboard memory, an Intel HD Graphics 4000 video card, a 13.3-inch screen, a 720p FaceTime HD camera, two USB 3 ports, a Thunderbold port, an SD card slot, a MagSafe 2 power port, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

Further details are forthcoming, so make sure to check back with Latinos Post for the latest tech updates.
