Ok so I know the new Macbook Airs will be released in early November. I ordered one on the apple store website and this is the information that I get from my order confirmation. MACBOOK AIR 13/1.86/2GB/128GBSSD MB940LL/A $2,299.00 Ships: Nov 5 Delivers:Nov 6 I know apple store updates are done on Tuesday. So that leaves me to believe that the release date is November 4, 2008. BTW: The price $2,299.00 is from the apple education store. Normal retail is $2,499.00 for the SSD model.
