this is just what i wish, as I've been waiting for the right time to buy the MBA. if they come out like this, MBA will not lose the competition with the iPad and still be the invincible secondary laptop in my opinion.

1. 4GB RAM
2. 3G built in (of course sim free)
3. full touch screen integration (hopefully the feature included in OSX 10.7)
4. if 3 happens, possible of the screen tilting capability
5. longer lasting battery (at least more than 5 actual hours)
6. more ports (either USB or sd slot, anything else will be great too)

i didn't mention the other hardware such as ssd and gpu because they have all been upgraded so far, thus i don't see the reason why they will not upgrade those.

if at least 2 and 3 happens, MBA will survive strongly in between the iPad and MacBook series as the dominant middle market with the price ranging between $1300-1600

what are u guys' wish list?

Well, WWDC clearly was not an event for Macs this year.

My wish list for the Rev D is getting refined.

1) 4GB memory
2) Reduction of weight down to 2.5 lbs or less

I am not positive which one should be #1.
