Apple will be unveiling the new MacBook Airs this week. We had mentioned a couple of weeks ago, that Reuters cited a news article from Taiwan’s Economic Daily statement that read “Apple Inc will start selling its latest MacBook Air in late June with 380,000 units as the first shipment.” Looks like Reuters was right and we will finally be seeing there release.
Can we get a little proof please?
Best Buy stopped shipping all versions of the MacBook Air this last weekend. You can still order one of the notebooks, but it is most likely that you will be receiving the refreshed version of the MacBook Air. The company also stated that they will likely not adjust the pricing for the new model.
BGR Reported that “several sellers on the Amazon.com website are showing low inventory or stockouts as well, further supporting the notion that Apple has stopped refreshing distributor inventory as it prepares to begin shipping updated MacBook Air models.”
The refreshed MacBook are expected to feature a Sandy Bridge processor, Thunderbolt I/O port, and should come with improved graphics. Hopefully Apple throws in a couple of new things as well.
