High MacBook Air Supply Not Expected to Slow

High MacBook Air Supply Not Expected to Slow

 

Ain't she a beauty now? Anyone who is taking their time to mull over the possibility of getting a MacBook Air can rest easy this weekend.

According to sources from Taiwanese tech news site Digitimes, shipments from Apple's upstream supply chain have remained strong since June, and is expected to stay healthy at least until August.

The same sources also estimated that sales for the MacBook series will reach an eye-popping 14 million units in 2011, or even beyond.

However since the report only gives figures until August, it is still too early to tell if demand for the svelte MacBook Air will surge beyond what the supply chain can handle. 

Based on the epic support Apple fans have given their products over the years, it wouldn't be too far fetched to say that the MacBook Air might just appeal enough for units to be sold out faster than they can be replenished.

That is due to the fact that this version of the MacBook Air has several new features like the Thunderbolt I/O, OS X Lion, and specs that have been upgraded to be on par with what is being offered on the market with Windows based machines today. 

This upgraded version of the MacBook Air also managed to maintain their attractive pricing, with the highest end model going only slighty above S$2000.

So what are you waiting for?
