I needed more portability and better battery life. I actually did notice a weight difference in my backpack and the open MBA is just easier to carry around one handed. I'm on the go A LOT though, so I know not every needs the ultra portability that I value.
Do you think the weight difference is significant enough to go MBA for someone who moves from office to office on different floors (taking the stairs) at work, but who doesn't carry it long distances (i.e.: around campus)?

Grabbed a 13 inch with the 8gb base model. Finally upgrading from the unibody white polycarbonate model from 09 lol. Loving it so far had it for a week now, new on the forums as well.

UPS are a joke. I've just spent the whole day in my flat and they haven't delivered despite my mba apparently being 'in transit' since 9am this morning :/

Out of curiosity: When you check the specs online, for example on this website:

Does it say 8GB there or 4GB?
Sorry for not responding sooner! Everything I looked at using the serial number said 4GB, so it was a nice surprise when I randomly checked in About This Mac after a few hours of playing around/getting it set up.
