I wonder what battery life would be if Apple used an ULV CPU...

6+ hours (:

Engineering is all about tradeoffs e.g. smaller package = higher voltage to compensate for lower conductivity.

TDP was lowered, and it isn't a handicapped chip so performance should be pretty good for its intended markets (as a secondary/light duty portable Mac).

I'd love to get one but the price is higher than I'd like vs. the feature set and how I'd use it.

If i'm correct... We should she an air update in the Q3 of 2008...

(WOW, I'm already thinking of the next air update and the first gen hasn't shipped yet)
