It will be several months. iPad 3 came out in March and it still isn't in there.
When the sales start dropping; they know they are not going to release a new MacBook Air for about a year, so they can afford to let any returns sit in the warehouse for several months before pushing them out to boost sales.
Last year the refurbished devices started showing up in September or October.
no pt in waiting with edu discount 50-10 plus $100 itunes card
and by sep oct the new ones will be a few months away
What does 50-10 mean ??
I think he meant $50 - 100. You can get $50 off of MBA and $100 off of MBP or even $200 off the new MBPR.
Search is your friend. Discussed last week here: How long's it take for things to show up refurb?
If the 2012 MBA's follow the 2011 MBA's schedule it'll be November.
You will probably see mine on there soon. Sending it back later today.
It was defective. However, defects happen all the time, and usually they aren't resold until Apple makes the refurbished units more generally available.
There is already one thread about somebody's 2012 MacBook air dying... So I'd say "any time now" for the refurb store.
Doubtful. Makes more sense to use refurbished systems to fulfill warranty-replacement needs than to use freshly built / new systems. Until Apple builds up whatever they consider an adequate "reserve", I doubt you'll see refurbs available for purchase.
I bought a 2011 13'' MBA last August when they were first released. I started watching the Apple refurb site in Oct and a few would pop up and be immediately purchased. Didn't see consistent large numbers of units for purchase until December. I finally bought a refurb 11'' in Jan.
It normally takes a while for them to be available. If you want an 8Gb model that may take even longer.
you might want to try Best Buy open box ...
these could come up quicker...
If you qualify for the Education Discount, I think it works out better to just buy new (at least until the Ed promo with gift card expires).
