No new Mac Releases before OS X Lion
 
 

There have been some rumors that Apple will release the new MacBook Air this month. I doubted these reports as the release would be very close to the OS X Lion release. Releasing new hardware just weeks ahead of a new OS update just does not make much sense. Shipping new 2011 MacBook Air with the shiny new OS X Lion just makes a lot of sense.

Now AppleInsider has published a report that Apple is just doing that according to their sources. Apple is holding the MacBook Air, which would be apparently ready to ship early until they can ship them with OS X Lion pre-installed.

You can get OS X Lion update for free when you purchase a new Mac after June 6. So there would be no financial disadvantage for customers to still buy a OS X Snow Leopard Mac, but it is more convenient and Apple is all about ease of use.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
