The rumored 2011 MacBook Air update is fast approaching (week of July 21) and will reportedly bringing along with it high-speed Thunderbolt ports, Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture, and faster memory. However, according to Apple Insider, the newest generation of Apple's ultra-portable will also sport a backlit keyboard.
