    i have the 1.8 GHz 64gb SSD and my biggest concern is will i be able to tell a difference? all i know is that i'm fed up with the constant overheating with the rev a's and i was wondering if they fixed the problem by switching over to 9400M's. Would you guys if you were in my situation buy the new macbook air or a 3.06 ghz, 128gb SSD macbook pro?

    I'm actually in the process of jumping ship from the Rev. A to Rev. C. I'm only getting the MacBook Air because I need it for portability rather then function. I'm willing to pay to price.

    Do you like the portability or does it not matter that much?

    I think the 9400m will make a difference, but not to much else since you already had the SSD version.

    sounds to me like you're the perfect candidate for the new 13" MacBook Pro .... the power you need and the portability too ... not to mention the 7 hour battery, improved screen and small easy to manage foot print...

    only thing i don't like about the 13" MBP is that u can't get the 3.06 GHz processor and it doesn't have the two video cards, and in my eyes its just a regular macbook still even though its called the "pro", and lastly for the price you pay the MBA seems like a better deal

    You're wrong. SSD in rev A and the ones in rev B/C are very different. Parts of benchmark shows double the performance, not to mention double the capacity. CPU/memory may not be that different, but I take it a great upgrade, especially if you're willing to play couple 3D games too. And obviously nicer if rev C runs without CoolBook. My rev A is totally useless (as in being choppy under moderate load) without CoolBook. But of course... rev A has the most reliable display...

    Just about any thread that talks about rev C includes about that topic more or less... There's also a specific thread saying 'lines in the rev C'. In short, you get a horizontal faint line on your screen better sighted on lighter background since rev B. If you get lucky, you get the good one.
