    If it wasnt so close to September i wouldnt even be asking. I know the fall is normally mobile devices but any chance of a MBA change? I would say no because this one just came out. But doesnt hurt to ask

    Doubtful. They just released this one a couple of months ago. I'm wondering about iMac and Mac Mini, myself. I've been on the fence between MBA and a Mac Mini. I've never had a laptop before, and while I do like the portable form factor, I might get more use out of a desktop. I have a week and three days left to decide whether to keep my MBA, or send it back and wait for the September announcements.

    Most of the rumors that I've heard point to a new iPhone and the iPad Mini. I haven't heard anything about another MBA or MBP.

    Buy it 9/1. If there an announcement on 9/12 that sparks your interest you're in the window of return. Otherwise enjoy.

    No chance. The Buyer's Guide never lies.

    They just had a refresh a couple of months ago, I highly doubt another air will be released this year.

    I doubt anything new will be released for quite some time, the current version hasn't been out that long.

    Seriously doubt they will anounce anything new on ultra portables.

    There'll be no new Airs until Haswell in 2013.

    and in December, someone will post, "Should I wait until WWDC?".

    I am surprised these people can get out of bed in the morning without asking someone else if they should.

    They probably write their posts from the bed because of this uncertainty. :)

    iOS devices, yes, but no way is a new MacBook Air going to come out anytime before next summer.

    There have been rumors of a 13" Retina MBP release this fall, but the Airs most likely won't be updated until next summer.

    I don't think airs will be retina next year. They're the low end macbooks, and I don't think the gpu's will be able to handle it.
