Latest rumor sees Wednesday as possible OS X Lion launch date along with new 2011 MacBook Air.
All previous OS X Lion release date rumors have been wrong. Now AppleInsider tries their luck with a new report saying that OS X Lion will be released as early as Wednesday. Their source are people with proven track records who would be in the position to know. They still keep it vague with the "as early as" qualifier. It could be also Thursday, which got mentioned as release date for OS X 10.7 last week.
The OS X Lion launch will also bring the new 2011 MacBook Air with Thunderbolt port. The new MacBook Air are supposed to be equipped with a minimum of 4GB RAM and run on new Sandy Bridge CPUs.
Mac OS X Lion is bringing 250 new features. OS X Lion will be available in July as a download from the Mac App Store for $29.99. Some of the features in Lion include: new Multi-Touch gestures; system-wide support for full screen apps; Mission Control, a view of everything running on your Mac; the Mac App Store, the best place to find and explore great software, built right into the OS; Launchpad, a new home for all your apps; and a completely redesigned Mail app.
