One of Apple's most popular computers is undoubtedly the MacBook Air - mostly due to its weight and reasonable price (they're currently selling for $999). However, not much has been done to the model recently apart from a more powerful processor and other minor internal changes. Thankfully this is all set to change, as the company is reportedly releasing a cheaper model this year.

The move should increase Apple sales, whose reputation suffered a considerable blow following the iPhone battery scandal.
