    what do you guys think?

    obviously it's speculation, but I'm sure many of MR'ers have followed past apple releases and it's pre-release rumours to know better than me.


    80%+ .....?



    don't wanna sell my mba for nothing

    just some %age off top of your head

    i read that, and the dozens of rumour threads. I'm not asking to be hand walked anywhere.

    I'm simply asking for your opinion, comparing rumors to subsequent past releases, to, the rumors that are circulating right now and possible future release.

    thnkx to the rest for understanding my simple inquiry :)

    They aren't in stock at either Best Buy OR Amazon online along with some other places as well. That by itself tells you there's an update this month. I hope :)

    I still have to sell my blackbook before I get in on the SB goodness lol.

    So you'd sell it based on opinions of people you don't know and who might have spent less time researching the facts than you?

    How many months are "a few"? Less than 6? If so, I would say it's 99% likely.

    The thing is the last refresh wasn't a real refresh in terms of hardware. Sure it got a little bump but essentially, according to the buyer's guide, it's been 499 + 256 days since the Air's been on the Core 2 Duo. WAY overdue for a bump.

    It was a refresh, just because they still used a C2D doesn't mean it isn't a refresh. If Intel would have offered a cheap and low TDP ix CPU at that time, Apple would have jumped at it.

    Apparently there are still some bugs in the GM version of lion so i think mid to late july would be realistic

    A lot of reputable Mac blogs are stating the 14th or so; that's the safest guess anyone can make I think. I would LOVE to have the new MBAs early though. I don't see why they couldn't release them now and just announce it later WITH the release of Lion.

    Yep they are back in stock in my state. Last week half of them were out of stock and not shipping to the store.

    I don't think you can really do that. A new Air is imminent. Comparing rumors to past releases or what not you wouldn't do, you have to look at right now.

    100 percent.

    If Airs are back in stock they are near the back of the line for a refresh.

    The out of stock reports were the only real indication of a refresh, the rest is hot air. :)
