New MacBook Air to Launch at End of June?


A brief Reuters report relays information from Taiwan's Economic Daily that claims that the new MacBook Air will go on sale in late June.

The paper seems to cite the same production numbers from an analyst report earlier this week, but adds the "late June" timeframe for launch.

The new Sandy Bridge-based MacBook Airs have been rumored to be coming in the June-July timeframe.

All of these Air rumors are killing me! Come on Apple, just release this thing so I can give you all my money.

I wish I could cryogenically freeze myself until this damn thing is released. The anticipation is giving me heart murmurs

so many MBA rumors, they've been demoted from the front page.

everyday i think about caving early and buying something now. everyday i convince myself to keep waiting.

when i finally get one, i won't even be happy. i'll just stare at it, empty inside. it will stare back. we'll sit there like that for a while. then it will go to sleep. then i will go to sleep, forever.

Yeah but it sucks to not have the latest OS installer on the bundled usb drive. I'd rather wait and be able to clean reinstall to Lion. It's just an OCD thing though

For the 1000000th time...Lion is free for any macs purchased from now until its release (whenever in July). You won't have to pay the $29

It would make more sense for Apple to release the MBA's first, then Lion later, so they have two great announcements, instead of just one.

Wonder how thin it will be. If it doesn't get thinner, I think many people will be seriously disappointed at Apple losing the Job's Rule.


Mac design changes happen once every few years. This new refresh won't be any thinner than what it is today.

HD = Hard Drive
HDD = Hard Disk Drive
SSD = Solid State Drive

"SSD HD" technically isn't incorrect; "solid state drive hard drive" is redundant and wordy, not wrong. Most people just believe that HD is a shortening of HDD. "SSD HDD" would be wrong.
[/nerd]


It is my impression that a hard drive is another way of referring to the hard disk drive.
At least to my ears you could call the SSD for a Solid State Disk drive, just like you could call the hard disk drive a hard drive.
I may be wrong, but I see the Hard Drive as a general shortening of the Hard disk drive, rather than a category which both the HDD and the SSD belong to.
