First MacBook Air Orders Shipping. Not in Stores Yet. User Manual.

Previous reports of shipments may have been premature, as the first customers who ordered the stock (1.6GHz/80GB) MacBook Airs immediately after the keynote are now getting shipment notifications for the latest Apple laptop. Calls to retail Apple Stores reveal that MacBook Airs have not yet arrived at retail locations.

Meanwhile, the earliest ship date for customers who upgraded to the Solid State Drive (SSD) remains February 6th, 2008.

Apple announced the MacBook Air exactly two weeks ago at Macworld San Francisco.
