MacBook Air delayed in US
Users ordering the new MacBook Air may be in for a small delay, with some shipment notifications indicating that the orders will ship in early November. AppleInsider reports that a user who purchased a CTO MacBook Air, with the 1.86GHz processor, 128GB solid state drive, and Mini DisplayPort to DVI adaptor, saw his order jump to November 5th for shipping. The customer is expected to receive the order by November 10th.
Another user in Germany reports that their MacBook will ship slightly earlier, with an estimated date showing October 30th as the designated time.
The revamped MacBook Air was unveiled this past Tuesday at a special event. The new model features Intel's new Montevina processor, coupled with a new NVIDIA-designed GeForce 9400M mainboard and graphics chipset.
