    i don't think they'll be waiting to release the Airs with lion. Lion is gonna be distributed be the App Store.

    On the plus side, it should mean there are plenty to go around when they are released....

    This might also boost Lion sales.

    I for one was going to buy a new MacBook Air once it came out. I'd be automatically available to update to Lion once it came out. If they release Lion on a flash drive and installed in my MBA, then I doubt I'll get it via the Mac App store. That'll force me to buy it for 30 bucks for my old MacBook Pro, which I would have otherwise installed Lion on for free. Sure, this isn't the only reason they're delaying, but it'll up their bottom line and Lion sales (since I'll have to buy it anyway now).

    For those interesting in iPhones, it doesn't sound like iPhone 4S/5 will be launched until iOS 5 is ready.
