    Recently my girlfriends computer broke down (a hp).
    I told her I would buy her a new one.

    Just before we enter to store. I try to be romantic and I tell her, "you can have any computer you want" (she is a university student and obviously needs a computer).

    What do you think she picks?
    Let me put it this way, she is off to dinner with her friends, and I am sitting at home with her macbook air 11 inch. :)

    I say, wow, I need to get me one of these. these things are amazing.
    I think I want to have the 13 inch however.

    But so you know, if you tell your gf that she can pick any computer she wants, then there is a good chance she will pick the macbook air 11 inch. :)

    I guess size isn't that important to her

    She looked at both 13 and 11, and she thought the 11 was "cuter" I guess.

    ps. I keep teasing her, because she once said that she would never sell her soul to the devil (referring to apple or Steve Jobs)

    get the 13 mba for yourself. I've had A LOT of laptops (high end thinkpads, dells, hp, asus, alienware) and the MBA is by far the best laptop I have ever owned.

    I can't buy my girlfriend a laptop, Apple at that. I think the wife would see the 1000.00+ come out of the bank. :)

    Trust me, the added height on the 13 inch is really worth it while taking notes, making papers etc. 16:9 on a 11 inch screen is just too small, have to scroll up and down all the time. I tried the 11 inches for a little bit, and for me it was hopeless. 16:9 is useless for anything else than watching movies, well at least until you reach 20++ inches (i still prefer 16:10 even on 27 inch+ screens).

    Luckily the 13 inch is still 16:10.

    Yeah, Im typing on the 11inch now, and yeah, I have to pinch all the time. (by the way, what a great idea, the whole pinch thing on laptops). :)

    But, yeah, the 13 is definitely the way to roll (even if I can appreciate the mobility of the 11')
