    I hope he's right, but it seems unlikely since most sources are claiming that Lion won't be out until the 14th. Unless ofcourse, Apple adds some sort promotional code to the new Airs allowing users to download Lion for free.

    Don't like their reviews. Seems to just be reading what is on apple's website.

    Any Macbook purchased after June 6th will get Lion for free.

    Jon seems like a decent guy, but he knows nothing more than any of the posters here. I'm pretty sure Macrumors is on of his main "sources".

    I doubt it, there seems to be some bugs in the GM version and we've still not heard any rumors of the staff being trained or of the typical rumor which says a specific date the week or days leading up to its release

    lol i feel your confusion, I haven't seen that rumor though, do you have a link? Theres so many rumors going around though. From what i've seen most of the rumors right now point to earliest mid-july but with the problems with lion it might push it back more towards the end of the month. Also as i stated earlier we haven't heard rumors of the staff working late to prepare for something. Id be happy if your were correct though, the anticipation is getting annoying lol.

    Hmm a 'circular' rumor (the best kind).

    Like tracking a horse by following is hoof prints (A horse that you happened to be riding) ;)

    Wel, I am sure they would like to launch the new MBA at the same time as Lion, but what everyone is forgetting is that they don't HAVE to.

    The fact that you will need Snow Leopard installed to get Lion makes it a possibility that they can start shipping these out with SL and give you a free voucher for Lion when it becomes available.

    Again, I am doubtful they would do it like that, but there is that small amount of possibility that they could.

    I am doubtful. The only thing we are going on is the supply constraint. No other solid leads. There would be leaks by now, so i'm just going to wait for those.

    Could even be a while (weeks to a month).

    People here are complete optimists (which is good, but prone to frowns :D )

    I wouldn't trust this guy's claim one bit. If you look at the video at about 9:06 you can see him looking to the right as he talks about his source. That tells me that he's probably making it up. The security bit was something he threw in on the spot there. What people will do for attention. :(

    I like the thread title. No matter which week you read it on, it will be true until the refresh finally comes.
