I recently visited my local Apple Store and the news is not good on the current version of the MBA. One salesperson would only say it is not selling well, whilst another said he could not even remember the last time he sold one!! In the mean time, the other MacBooks (especially the Pro) are flying off the shelves, so to speak. I tried to get some info out of them on what they thought the next gen MBA would be. None of them had any idea, and some even suggested there isn't too much more they can do with the current framework. They just kept pushing the iPad as an alternative. (I never use my iPhone for a full browser "experience" and those that plan to use the bigger iPhone - I mean iPad - are in for a real disappointment, imo). I just hope Apple doesn't see the iPad and MBA competing, or that could be real trouble. Hopefully, we'll get some good news on a refreshed MBA soon.
