∞ Pent up demand for MacBook Air seen boosting Apple financials

John Paczkowski:

Now, with new MacBook Airs and Mac minis on the shelves and the Mac App Store serving up one million downloads of Lion in a single day, Apple is poised to reap the benefits of what up until last week was pent-up demand for those products, particularly the MacBook Air. According to Barclays analyst Ben Reitzes, Apple’s latest ultraslim laptops will give the company a nice little financial bump for the remainder of the year.

I agree. Rumors of the new MacBook Air were around for many weeks before they were released and I think people held off buying because of that. Couple that with the release of Lion and the flood gates opened on release day.
