Wink MacBook Air on Sale at the 5th Ave Store Tonight! 10:55 PM EST!

It's 10:50 PM EST and the Apple Store on 5th Ave now has the Thinnovation MacBook Air display up and the MacBook Air's are going on display in the next hour or so. Anyone around Midtown Manhattan come on by, I'm the dude in the LV Brown Jacket on the iMac.

I might just get one tonight... if anything to play with it and return it the next day!

Oh, man, that's almost enough to make me drive up to NY. It's only 4 hours.

I swear if I didn't have an important meeting tomorrow. My nice car is way under mileage (in terms of making best use of the warranty), and it would be a nice relaxing drive. And I have a bunch of new music to listen to.

Must... resist... urge.... to buy MBA at 4am!

Tell us if they have any SSD's available.

WORD! There hasn't been a known retail sale yet nor any available. It would be welcome news if they are in-fact selling units. They've had demo's for a couple of days now as recently documented.

Cool

the Genius bar dude said there were going to be 50 available for sale tonight then more on Saturday. He said 5-10 were already going to VIP clients that are getting it picked up tonight. That leaves 40 more. Any buyers? I think I'm just gonna get it because it'd be nice to have on my business trips

Ask them if this is a NY only thing or will units be sold at other stores when they open Friday?

2 blocks! Why don't you just cancel your order now and go over there?

If there are any available here in DC after my meeting tomorrow, that's what I'm going to do.

You sure they will be on sale tonight? If so I'll take the ride down from CT (45 minutes) right now! I called but they said not for a day or 2 so let me know and I'll see you there!

So if you go to a store tomorrow am and they have one, the guy in NY is saying you have to ask, but if in stock they can sell them?



I live in Austin. Wonder if Austin Domain will have them in the morning?



Wonder if NY guy knows inventory?

We really need realtime chat!! On my iPhone also...

So they can't sell or display them until after 12am, being officially Friday? It seems kinda' ridiculous that he says I've got 40 for sale but sit here for the bewitching hour.
