    Lion will come eventually, maybe with the updated Airs? ;)

    That is a possibility, I wouldn't be ruling out that theory. :thumbup:

    Yep, I heard that date as well. That's going to be very soon considering it's next Thursday. ;)

    Hopefully it is! :thumbup:

    With the Aussie dollar as strong as it is, there really is no better time to score yourself a discounted Mac. ;)

    Turns out to be true, our pricing is now closer to the American pricing for apps. Hardware should be announced soon

    Wish they'd hurry the hell up.

    I'll be buying an Air and a Mini Server the day the new ones are out.

    If my predictions are correct, we would see the new MacBook Airs being priced at $999 AU and the new Mac Minis at $699, unless there is some sort of price drop with the two.

    *Fingers crossed for the price drop. :p

    +10%.

    :(
    Which will be cheaper than they currently are, yet not as cheap as the US store.
    Much like the app store, really.

    I want a few things, a current gen processor, 4GB RAM and backlit keyboard.
    These things for the same amount as they charge now and I'll sell my late 2010 15"MBP and but a base 13" MBA, might even make a couple of $100 :)

    Everything you mentions there King is what I want :)
    Would love 128GB and 4GB as the defaults for a 13" MBA.

    Just thought what it must be like to be high up in Apple and know when and what is being released and seeing all the rumors and just laughing to yourself.

    Obviously these 'sources' would be saying it's going to be released 'late-next-week' due to the fact that it is already Thursday in the States and people are having second doubts now that nothing has been announced.

    I still have my hopes that it will be announced this week, along with Lion. Maybe it will be a Friday release? Who knows? ;)

    Looks like something is on its way. The online Apple Store is down at the moment...

    Mini & Air out.

    New spec of the Mini looks a bit weird though; Server version overlapping the IMac pretty hard.
