So much whining about the single USB port. Sheesh. My 17" MBP spends most of it's time at home with exactly ONE thing plugged into the USB port: a mouse. That leaves 2 open USB ports for 99.999% of the time.

Last year I went on 8 business trips and I did not enjoy lugging around my 15" Powerbook and then, in November, my 17"MBP. Weight is a big issue with travelers. Anyone who has had to stand in the line for TSA to scan your shoes will appreciate a lightweight laptop.

I'd seriously consider a MBA if I hadn't just bought a MBP. I look forward to the migration of MBA technologies to Apple's other laptops in the future.

Now if I could only get a SSD with 256GB for less than $300...
