    Default 500,000 New MacBook Airs Shipped Already



    According to Digitimes Apple has already shipped 400,000-500,000 third generation MacBook Airs.

    How fast can they make these things?

    Digitime's source said volume is expected to remain strong throughout july and August, no doubt because of back-to-school sales.

    The sources estimated that Apple's MacBook series sales will reach 13-14 million units in 2011 and may even reach 15 million units, while adding that Apple is the only vendor that has provided a full shipments forecast to the first quarter of 2012 as the IT industry is being rather conservative about the overall demand in the second half of 2011. - Digitimes
    In Apple's latest quarterly filing the company reported shipments of 3.95 million Macs. MACS, not just one product, but the companies entire line of desktop and laptop computing solutions. If the current level of MBA shipments continue at this level, Apple could ship 1 millions MBAs in the september quarter alone.

    Expect Apple's next earnings report to reflect a jump in MBA and other MacBook sales as the back-to-school finishes its feeding frenzy.

    Anyone know when we will be able to buy the new MBA's in stores like Best Buy? I want to do a finance plan with them because I am guessing it's a lot better than Apples right?

    I'd definitely say the Best Buy card is better..
    Best Buy
    "No Interest Storewide on all purchases totaling $429 and up if paid in full in 18 months."

    Plan A: For Accounts generated on or after 06/29/10: Variable Standard Rate APR: 25.24%. Variable Penalty Rate APR: 29.99%. For Accounts generated before 06/29/10: Variable Standard Rate is 24.24%. Variable Penalty Rate is 29.24%.
    Plan B: Variable Standard APR: 27.99%. Variable Penalty APR: 29.99%.

    Apple Finance
    Promotional Period - 6 months Order Amount - Less than $999

    Promotional Period - 12 months Order Amount - $999 and up

    If balances are not paid in full by the end of the applicable period, or if a late payment is made, interest will be charged from the purchase date at a 22.99% variable APR.

    I don't know the specifics for the Apple Finance credit card, but the Best Buy Credit Card was supposedly a pain to get approved with if you don't have the best credit. I used to work with Best Buy, but if you get approved for the standard Best Buy card, you also get approved for the Best Buy RewardZone Credit card which can be used in any location and you gain points through the reward zone program with every purchase. It's double the points for in store purchases.

    It just depends on the experience I guess you can say. Some people just love the service with Apple and would prefer going there rather than Best Buy.

    I did the 'Apple Finance' and it's through 'Barclaycard' (right... 'who?'). I did the 6 months payoff for an iPad for my wife and then later, after I paid it off (I stretched those payments to 6 months and did an auto-pay from my bank) they offered a balance transfer offer that saved me about 6 points off my Citibank [vampires-n-leeches] rate. I did the xfer and am just about paid off. I think the 'balance xfer' calculator showed I saved something like $600 in interest. And the shorter time interval helped discipline the payments.

    Oh, and I thought my credit was pretty hosed at the time, but, you never know.
