I couldn't wait anymore. Ever since the MBA was first announced, I was dying to own one. I've always been a big fan of ultraportables and thin notebooks from the likes of Sony and Fujitsu, and now there was not only one with Mac OS X but one that looks so svelte and so gorgeous as the first unibody notebook from Apple. Unfortunately, it was super pricey and I already had a working MacBook Pro. So months ago, I decided it was time for a new computer but I knew the MBA hadn't been updated for some time so I was hesitant to buy it. There were rumors flying around about an updated version coming out any day now. I know rumors are just rumors but I guess I let the anticipation of it get the better of me and I waited. And waited some more. But nothing. And the MBP I had was ready to croak. Since then, I've bought an iPad and a new MacBook Pro 17" i5. The antithesis of an MBA, for sure, but if I couldn't have the ultraportable, I decided to go for power and screen real estate (and the iPad helps in the portable department). Who else waited and waited but ended up getting another machine? PS. If a new MBA comes out now, I'd be too broke to get one I'd have to wait yet again!
