I am really impressed by new 11.6" MBA's stunning appearance and its flash( or you can call SSD )drive, which I believe should be extrodinary fast in processing daily tasks such as email and internet! Moreover, MBA's portability really makes it an excellent mobile device to take away, you can bring it anywhere you like But I've got an 15.6" MBP and 16GB Ipad Wifi, and now, these two products seem to satisfy all my needs. I don't do photo and vedio editing, nor do I run heavy software, I don't even play computer games; but I do sometimes use matlab and some professional math software, and I use microsoft office quite frequently. My MBP is way to much capible of handling such "easy projects", and I think the i 5 processor is a waste for mw Whenever I would like to play games and surf the Internet in bed, I would grab my ipad... So is there any point I get new MBA? $999 is not a small money for me as a College Student, I have to work more than 2 months to get one!
