Rumor: Apple may freeze launch of new Macs until OS X Lion arrives

According to information obtained by the AppleInsider, a Reuters may be wrong about the arrival of new MacBooks Air this month, as Apple would have decided to freeze the launch of any new Mac until the official publication of OS X Lion.

Himself AppleInsider released a few days ago the data that Apple would have placed an order for more than 400 thousand new MacBooks Air with Intel ?Sandy Bridge? chips and Thunderbolt ports, which remains true but this first batch would just be waiting for the release of build GM (Golden Master) of OS X Lion so that the units are packaged and taken to stores.

The reason for this ?postponement? would be the fact that Apple bets heavily on the new features of OS X Lion and considers its advances strong enough to only deliver new machines with it pre-installed and that includes not only Airs, but also future Macs mini and Macs Pro. The same thought was already being directed to iOS 5, as the arrival of possible new iPhones, iPods touch and even iPads around the month of September.

Regardless, as we've highlighted here on the site, all Macs purchased from June 6 are entitled to a free upgrade to OS X Lion. To all the others, it's also not bad: Ma's new operating system costs only $ 30 on the Mac App Store.
