Apple Store down - Lion and new MacBook Air inbound?

The Apple Store is down, so that's a sign that new stuff is inbound ... but what?

[UPDATE: Yep, we have Lion, updated Macbook Airs, updated Mac minis and updated displays.]

Well, first off, Mac OS X 10.7 'Lion' is inbound, as confirmed at yesterday's earnings conference call.

Unlike earlier versions of Mac OS X, Lion will be available via the Mac App Store and won't be available in boxed form at retail stores ... so get your internet connection prepped for a 4GB download!

Also expected are new MacBook Air models. Updated configurations are likely to include new Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs, support for the new high-speed Thunderbolt port, backlit keyboard and 128GB/256GB of flash storage.
