Macbook Air + Ruby on Rails

Hi,

Is anyone out there already doing Rails on a MBA? I am about to buy one but I would love to hear some word about performance.

Textmate is not too heavy duty but I like it to be snappy at least like my 2.0 C2D MB.

I know David has one, but it is the SSD and he says its like 30% slower than his 2.4 MBP.

I am thinking of going with the 1.8 HD, any word about performance compared to other computers? (not benchmark, I am a sympathetic person please tell me your feelings).

Location: UK? Yeah I'm OK. Stop asking.
i can't imagine you'd have any problems doing rails development on an air. people develop on much much less (ibooks!)

anyway, you should be using python and django

I haven't had any issues with it, but I haven't done a lot of rails with the mba yet (got it yesterday).

It's a little slower, but has been fine for me running autotest, mongrel, etc.
