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.

    Why is this news?

    Apple indicated at the Event on Tuesday that the updated MacBook Airs would not ship until November. Why is this article written as if that's a surprise? If anything, it's impressive that they're shipping early in November, rather than later.

    My gosh

    Who the heck writes this c***. I mean really. For a "Mac" new site they sure do not keep up. Obviously not even watch the Keynote via Podcast....

    Hit mongers

    Typical MacNN article, exaggeration, misquote out of context, lies for the sole purpose of getting hits.

    I had to remove the site from my Apple RSS folder because their articles made me so angry.

    Only $2328?

    How come it's cheaper than on the apple store ($2499)? And what's CTO? Does that have something to do with the price? How do I get that price myself? Thanks.

    CTO

    I think CTO means "Configure to Order" or something -- Ie, customized order. If you go to the US ADC Apple store and purchase the hi-end Macbook Air and the DVI adapter you get a price (tonight) of $2338. Don't know if that is where they got it and if the price has been adjusted at all on the ADC store... (To buy from the ADC store you need to be a paid higher end Developer program member).

    Dumbsh*ts!

    Apple Insider had this article on the 16th! MacNN stole the screen captures from their story!

    Re: Dumbsh*ts!

    Um, they're part of the same network of sites (at least they used to be).

    And they linked to the article (not much stealing there, if you point to it)?

    And did it occur to you that maybe the orderer sent the story to both sites, which could also have explained it?
