So I'm not here to troll or start a flamewar by any means but I'm trying to decide on a new laptop shortly for my wife and was considering buying an Apple notebook...currently have a Sony VAIO SZ for myself which I absolutely love. So she can't figure out, neither can I the real advantage that the MBA has (if it does) over a regular Macbook. I think Macbook Pros are out of the question because she wants something portable. I guess for the owners out there, what CAN you do with a Macbook Air that you CAN'T do with a Macbook. Everything I've read and seen indicate it's rather the opposite...MBA is limited when compared to Macbook. Sure the MBA is thinner and lighter but is that really it? My wife isn't a body builder but even she said she doesn't mind carrying an extra 1lb of weight and an extra inch of thickness. So honestly, what sold you on the Macbook Air as opposed to a Macbook. I'm having a hard time figuring this one out.
