New MacBook Airs Coming 'Late Next Week'

094654 mba

AllThingsD weighs in on the MacBook Air rumors that have been circulating the past few weeks. They claim that the long awaited MacBook Air will arrive "late next week" according to "several sources".

Several sources indicate that the company plans to uncrate the eagerly anticipated updates to its MacBook Air line late next week. “The rumor sites are off by a week,” one source said.

AllThingsD says to look for an announcement Thursday or Friday and that the new MacBook Airs will sport a Thunderbolt port, backlit keyboards, and 128GB and 256GB storage options.

As we pointed out before, Apple will have to release OS X Lion at the same time or before the new hardware releases. So, expect OS X Lion sometime next week as well.

I predict that if they don't come next week someone will predict that they'll come out the week after that.

I hate this BS, 3 times in a row now, I have heard "New MBA will be released next week, tomorrow, or another date." Not a single rumor about release date has been true for the new MBA so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It makes me really angry that Macrumors would post at the bottom of the article "so expect to see the MBA's late next week," based off of a ********** rumor!

And then people start stacking rumor upon rumor, until it seems like it is a fact.



AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH :eek:
MacRumors? I heard MacFacts (http://apple.com) was pretty good, but a bit slow on the uptake with news and all.

I think all these new rumors are just like firing a shotgun from the hip. It's evident that the Lion and MBA release will happen very soon so anyone can say next week and it sounds reasonable. You don't have to be one of those "analysts" to make it believable.

I went private school, and my wife went public. We laugh at it now,but at first she felt embarrassed, about how much she didn't learn in the public schools that I was like... you don't know that? Which is why are children, when old enough, will more than likely go to a private or get home schooled. Most public schools are rubbish.

I don't comment much here, but this post is classic.
