4GB....my thoughts

I was concerned about only have 4GB RAM in a machine as well. That was until this last week. I was working on a 16x20 photo in Photoshop and had 7 additional files in Photoshop from my D7000. Was making a poster for my daughter from our trip to Disneyland. It was the first time I have not had a Beach Ball of Death when working on a project like this. I'm coming from a MBP with 16GB RAM. I can honestly say the speed of the SSD more than makes up for the RAM.

Your mileage may vary, but I'm more than happy with the 4GB RAM.

My local Best Buy had an 11" MBA that was an open box price reduced from the special sale price. Combined with the 10% open box coupon that is still active, I got the 128 GB version MD224LL/A for just $705 pre-tax!

For a couple weeks I had been going over the MacBooks and really had my eye on the rmb. This deal made me want to jump the gun. I had my local best buy hold a high end 13" for me. I looked around at the Macs before I went up to the customer service counter. The rMBP won me over so I left with the base 15" model.

I snagged the base 13 air last night over the phone with best buy and picked it up today. I cannot wait to get it home. Replacing the first unibody macbook that still runs pretty solid. Gonna sell it for a couple bills if I can get it.
A few Safari tabs, tweetbot, app.net and a bunch of terminal windows open will cause paging pretty fast. I ended up returning it for a 13" rMBP and i'm way happier, the Air is a good machine but no comparison after having the retina pro IMO.
