    What do you guys see as some essential programs for the MBA? I just found a pretty cool and super easy way to access my main iTunes library on my iMac through WIFI on the Air when I'm out of my network. Install simplifymedia on the Air and your main computer and share with yourself. Works awesome.

    edit: Thought of another one. Pandora.com for personalized streaming radio.
    Any other ideas?

    As the Air's HD is so small, I recommend XSlimmer, to save a couple of GBs.

    Both cool. Airfoil is also a good one. They've synced wireless audio to express, video on-screen now.


    Video doesn't seem to work but audio is good over WIFI. Also, it plays nice with PCs on iTunes or Winamp. Also Linux in beta.

    iStat Widget Must have for at a glance stats.

    Monolingual - Save some space. I know XSlimmer removes languages, so this may repeat some functionality.

    iStumbler - Great for finding open WiFi on the road.

    Maintenance - Keeps your Air running smoothly.

    For software in general, check out www.iusethis.com (good for seeing what other are using) or macupdate.com or versiontracker.com.
