    How does the 11 and 13in Air's handle Netflix? Besides doing the occasional Handbreak to convert a movie for my iPhone, and watching youtube videos Netflix is probably the only other "intense" thing that I do.

    Would I get any stuttering on the 1.6GHz 11in or 1.8/2.13 13in?

    I have an 11'' ultimate and my wife and I watch Netflix and hulu all the time on both the laptop monitor and on a 1080p tv through the MDP. No stutters. Although the fans turn on if we play it on the laptop but it's silent on the TV.

    Plays fine on my 13" with the 1.86GHz CPU, including the HD streams. I've heard of people getting stuttering with the 1.4GHz 11" but the 1.6GHz seems to handle it fine from what I've read on here.

    make sure you get the 4gb ram and you'll be fine.
