Hi, I'm contemplating a new Macbook Pro/ Air. When the first Air came out I thought it was a bit gimmicky, too expensive to be a netbook, not powerful enough to compete with MBP's. These new upgrades now make it seem like this notebook could suit me. However, a few questions.... 1.) how will this stack up to a 13" MBP, I know the processor is slower and RAM spec smaller, but would performance almost be near the par of the MBP? 2.) Will the Air be able to play back 1080p HD, and would it be able to play back 720p/1080p Matroska (mkv) format. I know Mac software for decoding this is pretty rubbish, my Quad G5 drops frames on 1080p mkv, but Intel Mac's seem to do much better. My main choice for the Air is the portability and the 'wow' factor...how does everyone else suffice at home with external HD, printer etc...does using a USB hub cut it? At Uni my work mainly involves MS Office, Mail and Web so this should be fine...just a little worried about HD video playback. EDIT: Will this play COD4, and possibly Modern Warfare 2 if it ever makes it to the Mac? Thanks.
