I know the number one complaint about the MBA is the 2 GB of RAM. And at a close second place, the 128 GB drive. This ASUS offers both AND Discrete Graphics! http://www.engadget.com/2009/11/17/asuss-ul30vt-announced-somehow-finds-room-for-discrete-graphic/ http://www.engadget.com/2009/11/11/asus-ul80vt-review/ With Windows 7, the OS is more like OS X! I think the ASUS UL30Vt & UL80Vt look like nice ultraportables. The thing is we all want graphics performance from the MBAs; we expect OS X to run as efficiently as Windows, for graphics, but it doesn't. This Asus has a CULV CPU and yet with its dedicated graphics probably runs circles around the MBA. OS X is just not as capable at playing an HD video, Flash, and etc... It's not an MBA, but maybe that's a good thing??? Too bad Apple cannot give us 4 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD, AND DEDICATED GRAPHICS!
