So after much deliberation, I finally decided on the 11.6 Macbook Air "Ultimate" configuration. This was a tougher decision to make than I thought. I was well prepared to purchase the 13 inch model purely for spec reasons, which include the longer battery life, SSD card reader, screen real estate, not to mention more processing power. But after reading all the great feedback on the 11 inch model here in the forums, I went ahead and took the plunge and purchased the ultimate and couldn't be more satisfied. Already owning a 15' I7 MBP that serves as my main powerhouse for photo and video editing (CS5 and LR3), I needed a more portable solution since I travel once a week. I initially had concerns about the screen size being too small for my middle age eyes but it hasn't been a problem at all. Quite frankly, this laptop is such a joy to use and carry around that I can't imagine my MBP leaving the workstation unless I had a need for more processing power for client events, which I imagine would be few and far between. I'm still amazed at the capability of this little powerhouse and am extremely happy with my purchase. Kudos to Apple for another technological wonder and thank you members of MacRumors forums for all the information which helped me with my decision. It took almost a month of going back and forth the Apple Store and Best Buy and I' m sure the employees were wondering if I actually lived there, but in the end, I'm very happy. Thanks again!
