So my 17'' MBP got DOA'd thanks to on-off-on-off-on-off Airport and HDD lockups so I decided to spend the little bit extra in difference and swap to the MBA 2.13 SSD and a 24'' ACD. I wanted the large display and mobility, but found that this really seems to be the better option for me. I'd been skeptical of the Airs, since I'd always had 15'' and 17'' Powerbooks and Macbooks and wasn't sure about the external monitor performance, etc. The first few gen Airs seemed to have lots of people complaining about the onboard GPU performance and sluggish response with the HDD. I didn't need the extra horsepower on the 17'' MBP and the 9400M chipset is amazingly capable. Gotta say I'm impressed by what it can handle. Even plays games at decent frame rates Although only on the MBA native resolution, not 1920x1200 haha. No wonder they switched over to the 9400M on the Airs. Makes this very very capable as a daily driver PC. Anyway, just a ''Happy with my change of heart'' post.
