I get that Intel announced a delay, but they expect it to be released in 2H of this year. They have already started fabrication of the chips. The air gets updated in the June-July time frame as it is. Why would we think that it would be delayed much past July? I'm willing to bet that Apple gets first pick at the new chips, so that means shipments of the chips should be starting now. A 2H release means that they will have produced enough to offer up to everyone. Meaning the people with priority already have them. So why should we expect the Air to be pushed back? If the answer is simply that 2H could mean October, then I understand. But again, Apple should have first dibs. Do they have to wait until the official release date?
