    How good is the MBA for watching full HD movies? I'm one step away from buying the new MBA and I want to be sure that full HD movies wont run sluggishly or have dropped frames.

    Also how loud is the sound?

    Like asking if a modern car can consistently achieve local speed limits.

    I'd be baffled if it couldn't run HD movies smooth, and the uproar would have been obvious by now.

    The one thing you won't get is 1920x1080 on the small display. Screen + resolution just doesn't quite get there.

    It can run it just fine. You won't have any problems.

    Speakers are even better than my external desktop speakers, even when they are a 2.1 surround system.

    And the 3.5mm jack will depend on the quality of your headphones; the audio card is top but notch and you won't need an audio card, unless you are an audiophile (is that the right term?) and you have a preferred card;
