More after the jump.

Digitimes reports that Apple plans to refresh the Macbook Air lineup this year in time to ward off competition from PC makers. Toshiba, Lenovo, LG Electronics, Samsung, Hewlett-Packard, and Acer all either have Ivy Brdige-powered ultrabooks in the market, or are scheduled to come out with one.

The ongoing Computer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas features many of lightweight, high-performance laptops, called ultrabooks, from the top PC manufacturers.

PC makers are expected to price their ultrabooks at USD 50 to 100 lower than the Macbook Air to be able to compete with Apple.

The current generation of Macbook Air sports Intel Sandy Bridge processors.
