I'm currently in high school and will be attending college this fall as a marketing major, so i really doubt i'll need a cd drive. I'm getting a discount from a friend who works for Apple so price isn't the issue but it's more mobility. I have heard that because of the flash storage the Air starts up and runs programs faster, also it has less of a chance of being damaged when moved around and carried. Any suggestions? And should I wait until April/May just in case there is an update?
