Question: I am soon going to be buying a laptop, and I'm looking at the Macbook and Macbook Air. While a Pro would be ideal and quite tasty, I"ll never be using it to its full, I'm mostly looking for sheer portability and "average" application use. Question i have is what is the real difference , noticeable or otherw ise from the PATA hard drive vs the SSD drive? I think that in general use the AIR would be ok, since my current laptop uses a 1.6 dual core 2 gigs of ram and integrated crap card for graphics. I shouldn't see a decrease in performance should I, I'd assume it would be at the very minimum the "same".
