OK, I am one of the folks who was personally disappointed with the MBA, I was not though disappointed as an apple fan they did an admirable job, it just was not what I (and I think many others) were hoping for. My ol trusty 12" MBP is one of the best computers I have ever had. I dropped it on the concrete floor at an airport in Australia I have split coffee on it and I have blown up a hard drive in it, and It is a perfect size for me. So I ask this question, what do the good folk on this forum think my chances are of a MBA coming out that will be my next dream machine? I rent movies from netflixs to watch on flights, I don't want to download them I am paying for a service I am happy with. I use firewire drives a lot. I need a bigger not smaller HD and I need a machine that is fast, I also want an intel chip. Am I dreaming and if I am not what timeframe would you think before we see something like this on the horizon. I was ready to replace my 12" a year ago, I don't have an alternate yet.
