I was wowed tonight by the thinness of the MBA. It's so much thinner than the pics make out.

I can't bring myself to write on a 13" screen. Do you think there will be a 15" MacBook Air?

What, and completely eliminate the idea behind the ultraportable?

i think the general trend will be to see the Macbooks and the Macbook Pro get thinner in the next iterations.

No because if it had a 15" screen it'd be too thin lol.

I don't see why they wouldn't make a 15". Weight is the main advantage to the MBA IMO. Probably depends on how well the 13" model sells.

I guess I see your point. They'd have more space too for stuff. That might be interesting. Weight and thinness is really where it seems to be. That could be even more thin lol.

I can't really see the point of that. If someone wants a large-screen portable, they should buy a MBP. The MBA is designed to be small, yet full-sized at the same time. A 13" screen is plenty enough, especially for an ultra-portable.

It's a little bit self-defeating to do a larger screened MBA. Agreed, in that dept, an MBP serves much better.
