    hi,

    apple seems to have problems to get the hdd for the entry modell of the mba - so i think about buying the old one with the 64gb sdd. or should i wait for the new mba with the 120gb hdd. they are both at the same price at the moment...

    what do you think?:confused:

    Haven't had a chance to play with Rev b but from what I read, it might be well worth the wait, if you're not in dire need of a new laptop.

    Go for the bigger HD!

    I had v1, went out and got the 2nd version with a bigger HD. You will be surprised how fast you can fill it!

    The Rev 2s seem to run a lot quicker and a bit cooler. That, plus traditionally Apple irons out a lot of Rev 1 issues in Rev 2 products. I'd be more inclined to go with the Rev 2.

    If both are the same price, there is no question that you should opt for the newer revision.

    The price of SSDs will drop drastically in the next 8 months anyway.
