Apple Testing A5-packing MacBook Air?

Could Apple really be considering putting its mobile-minded A5 processor in a MacBook Air? According to Japanese website, Macotakara, a trial of the ARM chip is already underway. Apple's reportedly been experimenting with a Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Air with the A5 on board, and "according to someone who has seen a model running with [Apple's] A5 processor, the performance is better than had been thought." 

Of course, this information has trickled a ways down the grapevine, and the presence of an A5-packing test vehicle doesn't mean much anyway.

They will probably charge a fortune for it. Im an ex iphone user ( for 3 years) and I would never go back to anything relating to Apple.

Interesting, it would be good to see if it would improve an already good product! .. rather expensive though.. think I will stick to my standard laptops!
