You might want to start reconsidering your bets about Apple's big event today now as refreshes for both iLife and the MacBook Air seem inevitable.

First off, several sites are posting images that are circulating of what appears to be screenshots of the Apple Support Forums already filled with individual pages dedicated to at least three applications from the iLife suite: iMovie, iPhoto and Garageband. And each of those pages include "'11" at the top.

That might not seem like much, but being that it popped up this late in the game, the early uploads were likely a mistake and just confirming what we all suspected.

Secondly (and more importantly), Engadget has published photos and details of the innards of what is thought to be the 11.6-inch MacBook Air. Sent in by a "a trusted source," some of the details we can hope to expect include:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13GHz processor (2.33GHz optional)
  • 2GB of RAM
  • Connectivity: Two USB 2.0 ports, mini-DisplayPort, SD card reader
  • Updated trackpad
  • Same thickness as first-gen MacBook Air
  • Round aluminum power button replaced by black power key for "instant-on capabilities"

Fortunately, we only have a few more hours to wait for all of this to be confirmed (or not). What are you most excited to hear about today?
