but then I saw the macbook and new macbook pro next to it and I ended up not getting anything. Apple you did it to me again. It was hard to pull the trigger on the air when the macbook/macbookpro's screens are so nice in comparison. I was surprised that I even liked the newer style keyboard. This would be my second laptop used mostly for programming,some media so I'm in a state of confusion. The non tb macbook pro is on sale for $1299 which was the same price for the rmb. What would you guys do? My main machine is a windows laptop mind you.
