Does anyone have any idea when the MBA revB might arrive at Future Shop or Best Buy in Canada?

These retails won't likely carry the SSD version, but now that the HDD version is arriving to apple.com customers will it also show up in the retail channel soon?

Thanks for any insight.

I've been trying to find this out myself for the past week.
BestBuy actually does have the SSD version for sale via their website.

Unfortunately, the HDD version isn't even in Apple stores yet here in Canada. I'm curious to know how long after Apple carrying the laptop will BB or FS start to carry it. 2yrs no interest would be nice.

According to an Apple rep I spoke with yesterday, the fact that Apple's Online Store just changed the ship date from 2-3 weeks to 1-3 business days means that they should be getting it soon in stores. Especially since people are reporting that US stores already have them.

Now, according to FS, one rep told me that it's likely they'll have them by Christmas, and at another location the guy said it's highly unlikely they would have it before January.

I talked to a Future Shop clerk today who told me they're expecting the new MBAs in the next 1-3 weeks, possibly as late as the end of January. He said FS has heard that Apple's had some manufacturing problems with the revBs.

Here's hoping it's on the "1 week" end of that range!
