Proof that Apple changed CPU speeds at the last minute?

    Hi guys,

    Ordered my 13" 1.86 128GB Air last night.

    What's interesting is that both in my order confirmation and the tracking info, the model no. is shown as the following:

    MBAIR 13.3/2.13/4/128FLASH

    ...which would suggest that it has the 2.13 GHz CPU. obviously curious after seeing this, I double checked the item description in my order history, and it does still say 1.86GHz.

    Whaddya think?

    Mine is the same here. I was wondering if there was a mistake, it plainly says MBAIR 13.3/2.13/4/128FLASH on the product listing, but showing the custom configuration in the details shows the correct info :

    1.86GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM
    128GB Flash Storage
    USB Ethernet Adapter
    Keyboard/User's Guide

    Maybe they added the lower clocked CPUs at the last minute to get lower prices. Maybe the 999$ pricepoint (and 1299$ for the 13") were last minute decisions (as in, in the few weeks prior to the announcement).

    Yes you can, but the model number shown above suggests that this was originally standard for this model...

    Same here, and I think there are a good few others on here with the same.
