Apple preparing Black MacBook Air

Lots of reports have been indicating that Apple is planning to refresh its MacBook Air family later this month or early next month, and now there’s a new rumor that the refreshed top-end MacBook Air model may also be available with a new anodized black aluminum finish, a color option that hasn’t been seen since Apple did away with the black MacBook.

Apple’s refresh is also expected to deliver support for the new Thunderbolt I/O port as well as Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processors.
