Those New MacBook Airs Are Actually Coming Next Week



We apologize if this is getting confusing. At first there were supposed to be updated MacBook Airs coming today with OS X Lion, then it was reported that we’d see new hardware from Apple on July 26th.

Now, it appears that new MacBook Airs with backlit keyboards and more storage could be coming as soon as next week!

AllThingsD is reporting that the rumored MacBook Airs will be shipping “late next week,” according to “several sources.”

“Still waiting for the MacBook Air refresh? You can put your credit card down for a bit.Although many speculated it would, Apple didn’t bring the new machines to market today. And it’s not going to do so tomorrow, either.

Several sources indicate that the company plans to uncrate the eagerly anticipated updates to its MacBook Air line late next week. “The rumor sites are off by a week,” one source said.”

We’re skeptical, but John Paczkowski of AllThingsD does have a pretty good track record.

These new MacBook Airs are expected to have Sandy Bridge chips, Thunderbolt I/O, 128 GB/256 GB of storage, and the long-awaited backlit keyboard.
