Apple Singapore restricts intake of MacBook Airs

According to a very dependable source, Apple Singapore is not allowing any of the local resellers to mass order the Air despite very high demand for the ultra-portable Mac notebook. According to Apple Singapore’s Channel Manager, they are only giving 2 to 3 machines to resellers who have expressed wishes to order more than 20 machines, without offering any official explanation for the shortage in delivery.

While it is highly possible that the MacBook Air is only found in limited quantities due to supply issues, Apple is not capitalizing fast enough on the impulse buying triggered by such a product. Many people whom I know who have placed orders for the MacBook Air are now canceling their orders simply because they are fed up with waiting, or they get dissuaded by family and friends simply because Apple allowed the long lag in time between the announcement and the actual product delivery.

I myself am contemplating canceling my own order for an Air.
