Apple expected to release Sandy Bridge Macbook soon

Hardware ready to ship
The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth rumour which claims that the fruity cargo-cult Apple is expected to release an updated MacBook Air powered by Intel's latest ultra-low voltage Sandy Bridge processors.

Rumors are that Apple may in fact have the hardware ready to ship from its manufacturing partners in China. What is holding the release back is that the Apple is waiting for the next version of Mac OS X to be finalized before launching the new version to the great unwashed. Sandy Bridge-powered Mac minis and new Cinema Displays are also expected to be released at the same time.

Jobs' Mob suits are quoted by Apple Insider as saying that they did not dare release the new Macbook Air models into the market with the current Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard operating system. The idea is that it will wait for Lion to be shipped pre-installed

Jobs Mob is certain that Apple wants users to adopt Lion, so that they can hand over huge amounts of cash to be in Apple's new iCloud services. Anyone buying a new Mac after June 6 will qualify for a free upgrade to Lion which should boost the user numbers a bit when Apple announces the first weekend launch figures and make it look more popular than it is.
