Lets put this baby in and pay an extra 2000 dollars for the SSD model. (I'm guessing that since half of that is 1000, yeah you see my logic)

Seriously I don't care how nice SSD is, I don't want an harddrive thats less than 80gb. I don't want a 6th of my hard drive taken up with the space that it takes to install/operate Leopard

Did you even read the article? It says that the 128gb will be of lower cost due to some minor performance compromises since the industry wants cheaper sd drives with larger capacities.

Congrats on the purchase. I'll let you on the HondaJet once that pre-order comes through. Only MBA's allowed. LOL kidding. Welcome to the Club.
