As in the Apple ultraportable laptop, not an MBA degree; just joking :D. Just want to see what people's responses are.

You can choose as many answers as you can, as long as they make sense :p.

To me, it is design + SSD + Sandy Bridge + weight + number of accesories + apple logo :cool:.

EDIT: Sorry, I have left out the option of 7 hours of battery :).

What - no option for the OS X - This was actually one of the main deciding factors for me as I found this system easier to navigate than windows. Everything else was pure bonuses. I wonder how many other people would choose this option :rolleyes:

Sorry for that - but you can include that under Apple logo... Well, seriously, I don't know :D!!! I even left out battery life.

Does anyone know how to edit a poll?

The Air's design is making my c**k grow. It's mostly about looks for me. However i also love the portability, speed, and of course OSX.

Weight, i5/i7, SSD, and design were what swayed me. I'd actually count availability of accessories as a detriment to the MBA at this point. TB peripherals are still few and far between and USB2 doesn't seem like its worth the investment. Hopefully TB peripherals will become more prevalent in the coming months.

When I was walking through Best Buy and saw the Air for the first time in real life I fell in love with the size and shape of it instantly. Later that night I ordered my 2011 13" ultimate. Loved all the good specs it came with but the design was the selling point for me.
