MacBook Air shipping in 24

Turnaround times for the MacBook Air at the Apple Store have shortened dramatically, checks show. The default, $1,799 version of the computer, equipped with an 80GB hard drive, is now shipping within 24 hours of ordering; the $3,098 model, which uses a 64GB solid-state drive, is slated to ship in one to three business days. This stands in contrast to the delivery times that persisted for weeks after the introduction of the Air, which sometimes ran as long as seven days. The reduction in wait suggests either an ebb in the notebook's high demand, or an increase in stock.

    Thanks for pointing that out, Captain Obvious.

    I just now realized the low end model actually has a regular type of hard drive in it. I thought all models were designed with solid state flash memory.
