I have had my MBA since Christmas day when I received it as a gift. I have carried it around in my daily commute and it has been nice. Last week I was on vacation and it was my first time traveling since receiving it. I really enjoyed traveling with it. We rented a cabin in the mountains for a week. I took the MBA, but I also took the work laptop, a Lenovo T510. The T510 is a very good Windows Laptop and it handles all of my work items with no problems. And it does leisure items just as well, even games. But I never even took the work laptop out of the bag. So basically I only had it in case I needed to VPN into work to handle any crisis that may have arose while I was out of town. The cabin was a 3 story building. Main floor was kitchen and living areas. Upstairs were bedrooms. And lower level was game room with a pool table, wet bar, fireplace, etc. I ended up using the MBA on all levels. So moving around in the cabin made me appreciate the size and weight of the unit. Walking up and down stairs with MBA held in one hand was very easy. Only place I never took it was onto the downstairs porch with the Hot Tub! My wife and son brought their laptops as well. Her is a 15" HP. It never left the main living area. She only moved it from sofa to dining room table. The sons 17" Toshiba never left his bedroom. I am the only one who moved freely around the cabin keeping my laptop with me. Used it for email and web browsing. Played music via iTunes and Pandora. Even played Diablo III when it came out last week. So my MBA helped me to relax on my vacation.
