I am somewhat dissappointed in this update... I was really expecting to see an increase in battery life. That was it. They could have stuck with Core 2 Duo as long as they had stronger battery life. I am not sure if I am getting the Air. I will be going to the Mall of America sometime and right across from the Apple Store is the Microsoft Store. I think I am going to see if there are any alternatives. So what alternatives are there on the market?
