Apple Store goes down ahead of WWDC keynote

That’s it folks, the Apple Store has just gone offline ahead of today’s WWDC keynote, which begins in a little bit more than two hours. Are you feeling the excitement yet?

As the big event approaches, possible specs of Apple’s new MacBooks have leaked, indicating that MacBook Airs will come with 4GB/8GB RAM flavors and a 512GB SSD option. SSD in these new Airs should use SATA3 and some of them are said to be based on Samsung’s crazy fast 830 series.

New MacBook Pro and Mac Pros are also in the cards and the AirPort Express base station is said to be due for an upgrade as well…

And another last-minute leak by 9to5Mac claims that Retina MacBook Pros will include the following specs and models:

MC975LL/A – MBP 15.4/2.3/8GB/256GB FLASH-USA
MC976LL/A – MBP 15.4/2.6/8GB/512GB FLASH-USA
MD831LL/A – MBP 15.4/2.7/16GB/768GB FLASH-USA

These Mac-specific refreshes should come in addition to the confirmed iOS 6 software and a bunch of stuff we’re looking forward to, including availability information for OS X Mountain Lion, all-new 3D Maps, perhaps an announcement regarding the next iPhone and more.
