Hi. I am a newbie to this forum and need to get a laptop in the next few weeks. I was about to order the MBA 11.6 Ultimate when I came across this: http://www.engadget.com/2011/02/15/samsung-9-series-laptops-to-include-11-6-inch-model/ From the provantage website, its supposed to come out in 5-7 days. So I am at a lost for which one to get. The Samsung seems to have newer internals, i.e. Sandybridge (no turbo boost though), USB 3.0, though I am not sure if these are better. Also it only comes with 2gb ram and 64 gb ssd though I don't know if these are upgradeable. Design-wise, I like the MBA 11.6 Ultimate more. I am going to be using this computer primarily for word, office, movies, music, very light photo editing, and statistical software packages (STATA, SAS, Matlab). Does anyone have any suggestions. Thanks in advance! P.S. Another possiblity might be going with the MBA 13 with 1.86 ghz, 4gb ram, 128 gb ssd.
