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
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?

Why don't you call them and ask.

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.
