Mine is due to arrive early next week.
From Apple’s press release:
Apple® today updated MacBook Air®, the world’s most loved notebook, with faster performance, the new Magic Keyboard®, twice the storage and a new lower price of $999, and $899 for education.1 The new MacBook Air delivers up to two times faster CPU performance2 and up to 80 percent faster graphics performance,3 letting customers breeze through daily activities and play more games. Now starting with 256GB of storage, MacBook Air allows customers to store even more movies, photos and files. With its brilliant 13-inch Retina® display for vivid images and sharp text, Touch ID® for easy login and secure online purchases, spacious trackpad, and all-day battery life combined with the power of macOS® Catalina, it’s the best MacBook Air ever made.
My take: Don’t know about the “magic” keyboard or the “world’s most loved notebook,” but I ordered mine this morning. The 512GB version, with Apple Care and state tax, came to $1,644.75 Apple is giving me $640 for my 2018 MacBook Air, which will bring the net cost to just over a Yang.
