BestBuy.com Runs Out of MacBook Airs As Refresh Nears


BestBuy.com has stopped shipping MacBook Airs to customers ahead of expected revisions to the MacBook Air. 9to5Mac speculates this is to divert the limited MacBook Air stock to their retail locations:
This typically means that supplies are so constrained that they have to focus their remaining inventory on their popular physical retail stores. BestBuy.com does not provide a date for when they will be shipping the notebooks again, but these types of things are usually indicative of a product refresh.
Rumors have all pointed to an imminent refresh of the MacBook Air in the coming weeks. Apple also may be holding up new Macs in order to pre-install the final version of Mac OS X Lion on launch. Mac OS X Lion is due for release in July.

Mac rumors have been stale and boring for a while. No indigos, dalmatians, or cubes . . . so that made the following line fun to read: "Apple also be holding up new Macs in order to pre-install the final version of Mac OS X Lion on launch." I am not complaining about a typo; I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd like to see more posts written in jive, pirate, Irish-English, what have you.

Hmm.
What about the white MacBooks? I believe those are older than the current Airs.


White MacBooks seem to be pretty back-burner. I'm surprised they haven't discontinued them completely.

I just can't see the MacBook's going! They're what started the modern Mac notebook lineup


Yes and the 1974 Oldsmobile Toronado was the first car to introduce airbags into automobiles, but they don't make those anymore, do they? :)

You can sort of see how Apple sees it's own computer lineup by going to apple.com/mac

and looking at the order they line the computer up. It's no accident that the macbook air and iMac are the ones in the center, those are the machines Apple really wants to sell. Going out one further and you see the mini and mbp, while not Apple's darlings, they sell relatively well so Apple put them next. Then on the very edges of the lineup you see the macbook and mac pro. These are the machines Apple is only carrying because it doesn't want to totally abandon their respective market segments. These are the computers that sell the least and go the longest amount of time between updates.....

Perhaps we can end this discussion by agreeing that it's not a PC? :D

The ipad is a big ipod touch, it is NOT a computer and it cannot replace one


The iPad and iPod Touch are both computers.
