    Well, I'll most likely be using my MBA for writing up a couple of essays here and there, a lot of web browsing, playing games from the App Store, checking e-mail, and that's about it.

    I plan on keeping the MBA for 3-4 years, too.

    I will be buying the 13.3" MBA with the 128GB SSD, but need help deciding whether or not I should get it with 2GB of RAM or 4GB of RAM.

    4 GB, definitely. 2 GB is limiting even now, let alone in 3-4 years.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, and in 2 more years, I'll be in college, so... yeah, 4GB is looking really good right about now lol.
