    Fits in with the other recent MacBook Air rumors, except that this one gives a precise release date.

    Link

    IDF San Francisco is August 19~21. Maybe Apple agreed to release the Penryn MacBook Air at IDF in exchange for 2+ GHz ≈20 W CPUs. This would also mean that the Apple-Intel relationship is still going strong.

    It would also be reasonable to expect to also see the glass trackpad then, unless either the glass trackpad rumor is wrong or the MacBook Air won't have one (but the other notebooks will).

    Wow... you're getting me excited! :D

    Sounds like pretty promising news... but could things like this act so quickly?
    Boost in speed and battery will be a plus!

    Not sure about the trackpad... but for me it doesn't matter.

    Now the Air seems more enticing to buy! Thank goodness I've waited! :)

    Well… the earlier rumor did say an imminent launch, so we can only hope!
