    Simple as that...vote.

    It's not like it's a major bump so maybe that why nothing has leaked...but I don't think it will since stuff actually leaked for the spec bump with the MBP's.

    But then again...why release Lion and the new Airs later with Lion on it...if they're already ready?

    My Bday is today...so give me a good gift Apple!

    I think something concrete would have leaked by now if it was.

    That doesn't really mean anything. I mean, nobody knew about the iPhone 4 before it was released... same difference.

    happy birthday by the way!

    honestly i hope it does but from the looks of it, it might take some spotlight away from lion, so i dont see it happening.

    i do wish though considering it will be my next big apple purchase!

    I don't think so. We would've heard more rumors/evidence about it if it were to come out today.

    I really hope it does, but it would somewhat make sense that it does right? Mostly everything thats been shown so far running lion (websites and **** etc) has been on an air, and in the current (stock) state that its in right now (2GB ram plus outdated processors), it probably wouldnt be running it all too well (i mean yeah it would run it but not like amazingly). It's not a redesign either, just a refresh. I have a feeling that new airs are on the way.

    If the new Air have second gen Intel CPU's i might consider switching from 13" MBP 2010 as i prefer the looks of an Air more than a MBP.

    I highly doubt that picture really tells us anything. It just shows some packages probably containing promo material for tomorrow. Other than that, for all we know, they could have some large boxes in the back containing MBAs (or not, obviously). The best plan right now is just to wait and see tomorrow morning.

    In all reality, I'm not sure there would be a smoking gun for the refresh that has been rumored. For the most part, I'm sure all of the packaging and images will be the same, which makes new models harder to spot than a completely redesigned model.

    They could set one out in the window and most folks would have no idea (unless the keyboard is lit up, heh).

    From all the leaked info, I'd call it more than a refresh (OK, I know that is what it is really) and closer to a major change, because it is going to take it quite a way on from the current models.

    My guess is Friday, give Lion a chance to have the store to itself, before the Air is released for the weekend ... mind you, I'm not going to say which Friday :rolleyes:

    Never heard of an Apple hardware refresh that happened on the later part of the week. If it's not today, I'm afraid we will see it on Tuesday next week. :mad:

    Doesn't the store usually come up at 5:30am PT/8:30am ET? So no need to hammer that refresh button quite yet!
