No new MacBooks today, coming next week instead?

Yesterday we reported that there was a chance we would see a new MacBook Air, Mac Mini and white MacBook today. Well, unfortunately it seems as though those rumors didn’t pan out. However, all hope is not lost! When one rumor disappears, there’s always one that fills its place.

It seems as though the guys at 9to5 Mac, who led us to believe July 14 was Mac day, have revised their opinions. A new report suggests we’ll see new MacBook Airs some time next week. 9to5 Mac cites an All Things D article when stating that the newest line of MacBook Airs will feature faster processors, Thunderbolt, and backlit keyboards.

What’s more, the measly 64 gig storage option will be a thing of the past. In it’s place Apple will offer 128 GB or 256 GB models.

There is also speculation that new Mac minis and MacBooks will make an appearance as well. And, one can be sure that whenever the new Macs hit the market, OS X Lion is sure to follow suit.

Personally I can’t wait to upgrade to Lion, so I can’t wait for these releases. I won’t be upgrading my computer anytime soon though. What about you? Is a 256 gig, Thunderbolt-touting, backlit-keyboard-rockin’ MacBook Air enough to sway you from your current computer? Let me know in the comments below, or on twitter.

    Get a JOb you idiot… Stop this nuisance every now and then..
    You people post reports and updates on rumours, post something more worth reading.
    its somtimes a mistake to be subscribed to sites like you.

    Does Steve Jobs call on your or that 9to5 Mac’s personal bedroom phone and tell that he is releasing OS X Lion Next week or Macbook Air Next week? If not, why the hell are you bothering your subscribers with crimpy stupid spam reports on RUMORS.

    Wont really appreciate another Update on RUMOR tomorrow saying, Apple has again delayed or postponed or whatever..

      THANK YOU!!! The website has been getting on my nerves, but this was the last straw. I think we can tell theres no new macbooks thanks for telling us. Also isn’t 9to5Mac is where all your ‘stories’ come from.

    • And what is media? A truthful beast? No. Lets present the facts: OS X Lion is the newest operating system of Mac. In the beginning (God created the heavens and the earth… or is that a rumor too?) Jobs&Co pointed out this would be released in the “fall.” Do me a favor and move your hand from your mouth from where Jake gave you a jaw-dropping article and navigate to http://www.apple.com and you will notice that OS X Lion is coming in July. Do you think that Apple would really release their pride and joy, something NEW, on something so OLD? No. Apple has a certain class, a demeanor that carries throughout their marketing. With September approaching, we will see a new line of iPods and since this OS is coming out this month, Apple will also unveil their new Macs. Call it a rumor, but I’ll be laughing when its true.

        The God created heavens and Earth is a bad example. First it’s not proven, second its just a story in a book. Also I agree with the original commenter, this site posts a lot of sh*t rumors, where many of them are just plain stupid.

        P.S. Sorry for my attitude against the god thing, I wouldn’t consider myself religious, I’m too scientific.

          I can assure you darwins “theory” isn’t proven, that we came from single celled amoeba is a false hood that everyone has been taught from school, but even if somehow we were created that way something doesn’t come from nothing (oygen comes from plants, where do plants come from and continue breaking it down until the end where did it come from? God the Creator of the heavens and the earth and everything on here) Archaeologists even still use the Bible today to find lost cities. The Bible was written by 40 men divenly inspired by God. John 3:16-17 NKJV

          For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
          Believe in Jesus, He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, noone can go to the Father except through Him.
