FYI stores in SF got huge boxes of "do not open" stock today
Apple store chestnut st, SF. They have no clue what it is they just know security has them in the lockup.
Something is in the Air
It's a bunch of Lion USB sticks!!!! [/lol]
Macbook Airs obviously
Haha imagine how many could fit in a 36x36 box haha

Warning: contains actual lion. Do not release.
Ok, groovy, when is the due date?
I guess they all will come in with a roar
(ok it's lame)
Sweet hopefully they'll be released Thursday, but i guess Tuesday will be ok also. I'll be waiting until refurbs come in though.
Box'll open and they'll discover the lion from the beginning of MGM movies.
Hahaha. Pwetty cats!!!
How do the employees or managers hold themselves back and not take a peek inside the box? Do these boxes have alarms that instantly notify Steve Jobs if they are opened early?
All they have to say is they tripped and fell on the box and ripped it open
At the time you posted this, it would have been 22:30PDT - surely there would be something on MacRumors, AppleInsider or 9to5mac by now?
Sorry for the scepticism, all the false rumours have made me a weary old man!
No, but there's an entire network of snitches loyal to Jobs. Any "rebel", will be up against the entrenched dictator and troops that remain loyal to him. Meanwhile NATO drones......wait...my bad.
BTW: Just don't use the word 'Hitler', or you WILL be fired immediately.
The Mac stores probably have very specific layouts for how they store their merchandise.
My guess would be they have security cameras that watch over everything.
I think it's mostly the employees don't want to get caught and fired. I think I remember a year or two ago someone did open one of the boxes and we got pictures online. I think it was MacBook Pro's but I don't really remember.
I think that was the last MBP update back in February because the leaked pictures showed the new Thunderbolt logo.

Apple stores receive new a day early, and it is set up in store over night or couple of hours before store opens depending on how they work.
Jus asked a friend who is one of the top at the store in my town and that what he said.. Tomorrow?
It could also be all the promotional materials for Lion (banners, posters, t-shirts for staff, maybe even a big stuffed Lion)
But I really really really want it to be the new Airs
Tomorrow would work for me. I need the new MBA
This is exciting I think I'll be holding off buying one till I go back to University in late September though
So how does this work? Do they open the store with new airs at the pacific time or would it be out at a decent hour for those of us on the east coast?
You are assuming two things:
1. there actually has been a 'do not open' box delivery
2. the boxes actually contain Airs
Just trying to keep your hopes down in case this doesn't turn out to be the real deal
you didn't read the fine print... at the end of the 9to5Mac post there was a very important line:
"The MacBook Air part numbers were correct and they are still coming very soon. We are still expecting new Mac Pros later this month or early next month."
