Hi all-- I have a 17 Macbook Pro which I use anytime I am not in my office (or to save time, I hook up to one of my 24" Dell Ultrasharp monitors and work from). The problem with my 17 MBP is it is too big and heavy. When my computer is in my nightstand and I'm in bed, if I want to get out the computer to look something up, I always reach for my wife's 13 MBP, because the 17 MBP is too heavy. I'm not a weak person, either -- it just can be difficult to pick up from certain situations. I am unimpressed with the 13 MBP screen (ever since I got the 17 MBP), and the 13 MBP screen resolution is too low (this was the selling point for me on the 17 MBP). However, the 13 MacBook Air has a much higher screen resolution, so I am very attracted to that. Add with the lighter weight and I am almost sold! I am concerned about power, however. I don't do a lot of processor intensive tasks on my computer (I have a computer at work I SSH into for anything that requires CPU). However, when I tried the MBA at the Apple Store while running top and ps aux in terminal, I saw huge spikes, sometimes at 100%, most of the time in the high 90 % when I watched youtube videos (irrelevant if the video was HTML5 or Flash -- I tried both). I didn't notice any noticeable bottlenecks and there was no pinwheel of death, but I am concerned that the 13 MacBook Air will not be fast enough and I'll start to regret the purchase (before I gave my wife my 13 MBP, I wanted to throw it out the window as every hour, I would experience bottlenecks where the computer would look up for 5 to 30 seconds. I had a 7200 RPM HDD in there, I've never put an SSD in my 13 MBP. My 17 MBP has an SSD and a 750GB 7200RPM HDD). I hope the SSD helps out some, but I am concerned because the MBA and 13 MBP shares the same processor and I really was not happy with my 13 MBP......... Advice please? Do you have any problems using your 13 MBA for general, multitasking? Does Word ever lock up on you (or do you use iWork)?
