    I concede: the rMB is overpriced and the keyboard is bad. It hurts to type on, especially for extended periods. Not enough travel and response. Back to the 4 year old MBA with the grainy screen.

    took me under 10 minutes to adapt to the new keyboard (after millions of years with macbook pros); now the pro keyboard seems... antiquated, odd. am personally loving the new macbook, my fave apple 'book so far (and i've owned a lot, since the 2400c).

    Yeah, at first I loved the keyboard. I guess after awhile I found it numbing and I would miss keys because I couldn't feel the feedback. And I would also concede that I miss the portability and lightness of the rMB.

    i dunno, seems worth adapting to the keyboard rather than adapting to the air's lesser screen. but whatever works for you, at least you have a choice.

    True. I gave it my best shot, just not for me. Glad it's working out for you, I miss the screen a lot!
