    One thing that I miss in my MBP is the look of screen, even though the MBA screen resolution is better I hate the Aluminum edges/boundaries, Black Glossy Edges looks a lot better, are there any skins to cover the Aluminum on the MBA screen?

    I was expecting this for quite a while but I suppose it won't happen anytime soon. Maybe the next generation will have it, now that Apple builds these laminated screens. Who knows.

    I totally agree with you, the black outline also looks better to me, unfortunately I dont think there is anything on the market that does it, but you could always make one yourself and get it printed as a sticker, pretty sure theres services for that.

    This is the only black bezel sticker I have managed to find, but supposedly they won't ship to the USA...

    The look doesn't bother me as much as the lost screen real state taken by a thick bezel. The saving grace is that thin black gasket that surrounds it and the stealth (cool!) FaceTime status light.

    Also the camera does suck lol, with my MBP i could use the camera in the dark and it was just fine, not with this camera.. not the end of the world but weird thought it would be better

    I'm on the other side - I love the look of the aluminum trim. It's high end and classy. I think it's because I used to have multiple MBPs with hi-res anti-glare screens and that's a pretty sweet premium over the standard MBP and signifies it's the high end model.

    Wow, I also like this. I am seriously considering having my friend in the UK bring one for me next time she visits.

    The bezel doesn't 'take' any real estate away from the screen. A larger screen simply wouldn't work in the same housing.
