Apple Working on a 15-inch MacBook Air?

Chinese site, Apple.pro, who we have previously run reports about, is now claiming that Apple is hard at work on a larger 15-inch MacBook Air, noting that further details should be released in the “second half” of 2009.

Apple.pro states, “It is understood that Apple is producing more than the current MBA size MacBook Air (15-inch?),” which may seem a bit vague, given their questionable track record. Yet the site goes on to add further details about the alleged MBA’s big brother, noting “Core architecture will use the latest Intel processors from the current ultra-low voltage processor “Core 2″ modifications made to make a stunning ultra-portable suitable for the older poor eyesight.”

Given the somewhat shotty past performance of the site, it is difficult to determine the validity of these claims. Back in August, photos claiming to be early shots of the new MacBook wound up being a sham, while July photos of the new MacBook Pro ended up being rather legitimate.

While a 15-inch MacBook Air would be possible, would there be enough widespread demand to warrant this product? Apple notes that the current 13.3-inch MBA trails behind the MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMac on the top sellers list, so it is hard to tell whether a 15-inch MacBook Air would jive with the rest of the notebook line as it stands now. The first question that comes to mind would be, “How expensive would it be?” In an age of modestly priced netbooks, it is hard to imagine that a well over $3,000 portable even be considered by many.
