I gave my Macbook to my mother back in June and have been using an HP netbook in the mean time. I'm ready to buy a Mac but I'm really concerned about the lack of storage in Apples entry level notebook. I no longer have very many files since I don't rip my discs anymore with HULU doing a good job of having a lot of programming worth watching. For gaming I use my PS3 and occasionally my 360 (not paying for LIVE). The only thing I have are music files which are 16GB and slowly growing since I love using Pandora on my PS3 while cooking and cleaning my place. As for programs I only plan to get iWorks and smaller ones like Skype, Chrome, etc. What I'd also like to know is how much space is left from the start since the partition and Lion use a set amount. If I have to spend any more than the $999 I'll just get a Mac Book Pro but I think its overkill since the netbook enough for my needs so far and storage is really my only concern for the MBA.
