I'm debating right now getting an Air for work use. I use an iPad right now to cover sporting events and such, and it's workable but not ideal. I can survive doing that, but I'm considering getting a notebook. What really spurred my interest in a portable is a Gateway that Target has on sale this week. It's $250, which means it's about $238 for me with a 5 percent discount. I haven't consistently used a PC in about six years, but that seems like a good price for anything. Unfortunately, Target is having trouble keeping these in stock. I have found some of the previous Air models for different prices: $759, $799, $839. The benefit of the $839 is I can get it financed for 18 months. The $759 is Apple's refurb price. I'm worried about the unknown on all of this. I don't know how much storage 64GB really is on a computer. I plan on really just using this for basic tasks, meaning no Photoshop, no serious photo or video editing. Just mostly typing and maybe Web browsing. I already have an iMac, iPad and iPhone. So it's not like this is an "only computer" buy. So I would appreciate some feedback on the mid-2011 models, especially the 64GB SSD and 2GB RAM base model. Is the battery pretty close to the 5 hours of the newest model? My iPad will last FOREVER doing the word processing I do, so I'm assuming battery won't be a problem. Thanks for any advice!
