    Well after playing with my new MBA... i love this thing!!!

    i know all the reports said that the mono speaker sucked.. but really it sounds great! even with music! I agree there there is a little bit less bass than on the macbook, but it isnt like it is all crackled, or crappy sounding. Very very clear sound.

    Anyways, with all the bad reviews out there, i just wanted to let everyone know that you shouldn't let the mono speaker scare you away, it is plenty good to listen to music.

    i was surprised too. when you want quality, you'd plug in a good pair of earphones anyways

    There's bass in the MacBook? :confused:
    LOL, just kidding – The MBP, even though it's much better at this, it's still a laptop = crappy sound.

    I get better sound plugging my headphones in, crank the volume and put them on the table. Okay, it's HD25-1s, RS1s, and PS1s, but still.

    I'm really not surprised you're getting almost the same "quality" as the MBs two speakers. The only ones who thinks audio quality depends on the number of channels are the same people listening to a music cd (i.e. stereo=two-track) on 7.1 set-ups.

    I agree, not bad and definitely ok for everyday, casual stuff. The only mac laptop that has decent speakers is the 17" MBP. The others are pretty crappy and you need earphones for high quality anyway.
