So Apple retail stores and apple.com sell the MBA 2013's already, but Best Buy and Amazon still don't? Why? I see on Best Buy's website that the Macbook Air will be available for pre-order but their is no mention of a release date or arrival date. Was this addressed at the keynote? I've seen nobody create a thread regarding this issue, and considering I have 2X $100 dollar gift cards to Best Buy I want to buy the Macbook their. Furthermore the situation is the same for the Airport Extreme and Time Capsule (was considering one of those for my router which keeps turning itself off every few hours). Please reply if you have any information regarding this! My last laptop crapped on me, so I need to pickup my new laptop very soon. I'm currently posting this on my iPad Mini, and I need a laptop for work and online college.
Here's a link to the BB page: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple®+-+MacBook+Air®+-+13.3"+Display+-+4GB+Memory+-+128GB+Flash+Storage/6238297.p?id=1218721416338&skuId=6238297

Thanks,

Thomas

it takes time for resellers to get their stock.
Oh okay, thanks for the reply. I may end up pre-ordering, I just want to get the laptop the quickest way through Best Buy. If I preorder, I don't want to feel dumb for not just doing in store and getting it (since Best Buy ships rather slow even with the "express" shipping speed option.

I passed by my local BB last night and they had stock so you might want to call and confirm.

My local Best Buy at Baybrook has 5 units with model number MD760LL! W00t!
I picked one up yesterday but haven't opened it :eek: I know, I know! but I also bought an iPad 4 (which I did open) and I'm trying to decide which I'm going to stick with.
