Hello there, I'm about to retire and am thinking of treating myself to an Air ...and retiring my sluggish 8 year-old G3 "whitebook". I'm not a power user, and I'm not a road warrior. A back problem prohibits me from sitting in a chair and using a desktop computer, so I sit in my recliner, dinner tray with underbelly of styrofoam beads on lap, and browse, email, use programs such as Word, Excel, FileMaker Pro, iPhoto. Now there's a good chance I may take photography more seriously (heck, I can't sit in the recliner all day), and use Photoshop, Lightroom, or Aperture. I reckon I'll avoid the current MacBooks as people complain about the screen. The powerful and versatile 15-inch MBP was tempting until I heard there was no matte screen, and of course it's heavier on the lap than the Air. Which brings me back to the Air whose screen people seem to like, as long as they don't get a model with the line plague. An SSD is very tempting as it would instantly call up and save photos. A larger SSD, 4 gigs of RAM, and a faster processor would certainly make the Air even more tempting. Yup, I'm rambling, 'cause I don't know what to do, apart from wait till June (October?) for the next significant update. Are there any couch potatoes (old farts) happy with their stay-at-home Airs? Or, would I be smarter going for an MBP?
