    Hello,

    this is my first post, been lurking for some time and finally got the courage to register:D.


    So to my issue, i have a whitebook ( 2.4 ghz , 2gb ram, 160gb) but want to
    get an Air mostly because i am not satisfied with the screen and built quality (cracks) on the whitebook.

    I just want some more additional info on any defects that the Air may have(if there are any) like cracks on the whitebook before i make the final decision.

    Thank you!

    The battery life in the Air is not nearly as good as in the MacBook. That's not necessarily a complaint or a defect, just a fact.

    The MBA is a beautiful machine, if you can afford it, you won't regret it :)

    My 2nd gen air battery outlasts my old blackbook by a good margin. at least an hour or so.

    I absolutely recommend the rev B MBA. Some have very faint lines, but as a whole the product is very solid. Much nicer than a plasticbook.

    Congrats on your decision, and enjoy your MBA.

    Wow. They must've done some serious battery work between versions.

    My Rev A MBA's battery isn't bad, but it doesn't last nearly as long as my wife's white MacBook.
