    Hello, all.

    So, I was in an Apple reseller store in Long Island over the weekend (GeekHampton, in Sag Harbor), and was chatting with the staff about possible release dates for a new MBA. They predicted June or July, because they are no longer receiving shipments of MBPs and MBAs to sell.

    That's all they knew, that's all I know, but I thought it was an interesting bit of information. Enjoy!

    The supply chain does tighten up before a refresh, and it's common to hear of retailers (esp. third-party retailers) have trouble getting stock in the weeks leading to a new product. So this is feasible. :)

    It does seem entirely logical, but only the WWDC can put our doubts to rest for sure.

    I, however, cannot wait for the Mini Refresh!
