Hello there, . I'm a PC. However, I'm almost certain that I'll be switching from Windows to OS X with my next purchase. I'm a freshman (Political Science) currently stuck with an old PC running XP ever since I sold my "gaming-laptop" 6 months ago for being loud, constantly in need of repairs and Vista driving me insane. It's been possible to cope without a laptop, but it would definitely make life easier to own one. I would ditch the PC and use my Macbook for all tasks. These encompass surfing the web, watching streamed videos, iTunes, occasionally Photoshop, using Word and Powerpoint, reading PDFs and occasionally playing Quake World (est. 1996). I want a small, portable notebook with a SSD drive and the multi-touch pad that performs these tasks without issues. The sure-shot would be the new 13" MBP, but since I'm into fashion and design, I've been trying to convince myself to go for the Aston Martin of notebooks, the MBA. I do not need the SD-card slot at all and my DVD/R-drive's only task since going to college has been installing MS Office. 1 USB-slot is all I need when I'm on the road, at home I'd just have to buy a hub. Can a single USB-slot handle all the information that's being delived to it from mouse, keyboard, superdrive and ethernet by way of USB-hub? I want to avoid connection losses or letters missing because I'm typing too fast... So am I right in my assumption that I don't need the MBP's features and additional power or have I overlooked some aspects? Money is a minor issue, to me the style and portability advantage would be worth living conservatively for 1 or 2 months.. Under the assumption that the MBA wouldn't be a mistake, I'm still not convinced whether I should buy one now. The 'one revision away' thread was an interesting read and to me the MBA seems a bit outdated compared to the unibodies it bred. The inclusion of a glass-trackpad and the long-life polymer battery seem almost inevitable in a future revision. I just don't want to have waited too long - the longest I would wait would be the beginning of January, around the time when the MBA was first introduced at Macworld. Is there a consensus on when we'll see the next revision? Will the coming Intel CPUs make a significant difference? Basically, should I buy a MBA in late August, wait or go for the MBP? You guys don't seem to be part of the TLDR crowd, so I tried to explain my issue as thorough as possible...I'm anxious to hear the replies Thanks!
