my predictions were all correct (on MacBook Air)

Firstly, no, I did not go to Costco for the grand opening in Auburn. I am not an American.

MacBook Air

Not long ago, I posted specifications on the upcoming MacBook Air here on 15 July and here on 27 June. Okay, strictly speaking, not really "predictions", but reliable information from my reliable source about the MacBook Air specs. Apple released new MacBook Air last night (Sydney time). I did not mention BTO or CTO (built-to-order or customised-to-order) options, but all what I mentioned were correct.

Core i5 Core i7Thunderbolt
So the new MacBook Air are available in following specs:
11-inches: Intel Core i5 dual-core 1.6 GHz, with 2GB or 4GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB flash storage.
13-inches: Intel Core i5 dual-core 1.7 GHz, with 4GB RAM, 128GB or 256GB flash storage.
Both sizes came with FaceTime camera, two USB 2.0 ports, Thunderbolt port, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. (13-inch model also comes a SD card slot)

As for customising, both sizes can be beefed up to Intel Core i7 dual-core 1.8GHz, and the 11-inch model can have up to 256GH flash storage.

Now, which one shall I choose? Pretty much I am settled for the 11-inch model, I need something lightweight (my current 15-inch MacBook Pro is too heavy). However, the SD card slot (on 13-inch model) is convenient.

It is always hard to decide.
