    I just recently bought a new iMac and I'm thinking of buying a laptop to go with it. I would probably use it for watching videos (Divx,mkv) , remotely controlling my iMac, VMWare with Windows, basic internet surfing and maybe some World of Warcraft. And maybe tweaking my songs in Garageband (unfortunately it doesn't have audio in :( )
    I really like the look and size of the Air but I'm just not sure if it would be powerful enough for my needs. I was thinking of a low end MBP but they're just too large. The regular Macbooks are great but the Air REALLY appeals to me. I've always loved small electronics (I had a Palm III and loved it!)
    So I ask you this: Is the Air right for me?
    I've read many topics here on the forums but just can't determine if it's the right Mac.

    Edit: 1.6 GHz only. The high end Air is just TOO much.

    From my experience it should work fine for your needs.

    It should work fine for what you do. I use my Air for a bit of Lightroom and Photoshop work and it handles it adequately so if it can do that then it'll be great for you :)

    Maybe you could wait for the Dell Adamo. This laptop so called ultraportable looks incredibly small and well designed.
