M2 MacBook Air for sale, base models coming next week

M2 order

As promised, the M2 MacBook Air went on sale Friday with the first machines shipping to customers next Friday. (I got my hands on one for a little while at WWDC, but haven’t touched one since.)

This product has been repeatedly delayed by supply-chain issues, and so it’s not surprising that many of the people I’ve seen on Twitter are reporting that their MacBook Airs are due to ship in August:

In all likelihood, Apple built a lot of base-model Airs and maybe some of the higher-end configuration, in order to fill its sales channel with M2 Airs next week. But if you want one that’s custom in any way, you’ll need to wait a little bit.

(For the record, I ordered an M2 Air in Midnight, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, for my family. It’s due August 2-9, like almost everyone else’s.)
