Best Buy, who is one of Apple’s largest resellers, has stopped the shipment of MacBook Airs, while Amazon says their stock is ‘Low’. This is usually a sign of an upcoming refresh. It seems like it was yesterday that the Air’s got their newer, sexy design, but a refresh is due. The internet has been flooded with rumors of new Airs, Mac Pros, and iMacs possibly coming in July.
The main upgrade for the MacBook Air would be a newer processors, and of course, OSX Lion. The Air is one of my favorite Apple laptops, because they are just so darn sexy. I would most definitely buy a new Air if they are upgraded with a more powerful Sandy Bridge processor from Intel. An upgrade in the Mac Pro line also seems imminent.
Best Buy is known for giving away upcoming Apple refreshes, with their ‘Dummy SKU’s’ that they place in their system ahead of refreshes. Some sources are speculating a release date around the July 4th weekend. Rumors of the much-anticipated iPhone 5 (or 4S) are heating up with a September announcement date.
The reports of the new iPhone’s release have been announced by fairly reliable sources, including Bloomberg, Huffington Post, and Wall Street Journal. But all of this is speculation until we see that black shirt and New Balance shoes hit the stage.
