Macbook Air

Hi all..

Anyone know why the Air has "Aero disabled" when running Windows?

EVery website i've ever come across, eg Parallels,.... or any other sites that shows Macbook Air running Windows (Bootcamp would qualify here too), I always see a pic of the Air with Windows 7 showing, but with Windows Aero desktop disabled.

I'm scratching my head as to wonder why not one single air gets shown with Aero as it should be? I'm guessing for performance issue, but really THAT much difference ? With Aero enabled on the current-Air are you REALLY gonna be hard pressed by "jerky mouse pointer and menus" in VM ?

Not a deciding factor of getting one, as I don' t use Windows, but if presentation is everything, why disable Aero ? Unless performance is the only factor.
