An investigation revealed that Apple is using a tinier and cheaper Thunderbolt chip on their new MacBook Air.

An investigation into the new MacBook Air’s internals showed that Apple is using a new, relatively untested Thunderbolt chip. The said Thunderbolt chip is called Eagle Ridge which has two 10Gbps bidirectional lanes (40Gbps), while the Light Ridge chip in the iMac, MacBook Pro and Mac mini has a full four.

The said part tracked down by AnandTech can only drive one display over Thunderbolt, but is also much smaller and cheaper, a key to fitting it into the 11-inch, $999 Air.

With the MacBook Air adding up the latest generation Sandy Bridge processors, Apple might be planning to build orders of over 1.5 million products by summer.

According to Digitimes’ current rate record, Apple will be having 1.2 million – 1.5 million MacBook Airs to be shipped in summer.

Apple iMac: Suffering from Yellow Screen Again?

It seems that Apple isn't learning from past mistakes.

The phenomena of Apple lives on, but as they begin to reach climax once again with the iPhone 4, news are flooding once again. The reason? The yellowish-screen issues for their tradition of iMacs.

For that issue, Apple seems to forget that this made them down before. Apple said that they already resolved the problem last February, with the previous iMac respectively. But as we see it they forgot the lesson learned in the previous issues.

Given that majority of its users are assuring us that there are “no problems” with regards to the new iMac. There are even 80% of MacRumors users participating in a poll given by the website. Saying that the new 27-inch model is yellow-free, with all the glorious crystal quality. This might be the reason why Apple is ignoring the hysteria.

But there would be no smoke, if there is no flame, Apple.

We assure you, we would give you updates with regards to the issue.
