In real stores across the US, situation is even worse, cause big – unexpected – demands almost every store is out of stock of new MacBook Air. We are talking about only those Air models with classical hard drive – not the SSD model.
If you are living in New York, Chicago, San Francisco or LA, and you want to buy new MacBook Air, there is a big possibility that you will get only out of stock sign.Situation is quite similar in Best Buy stores, and Amazon online store, you can consider yourself lucky guy if you manage to find some MacBook Air.
It’s interesting that high demand and out of stock is only related to the MacBook Air model with regular HDD – cheaper models. It is obvious that the price for SSD version is just to high.
