    I love this thing so far, but there is one thing I have a question about. The scrolling on it feels choppier than I expected. This goes from everything from the App Store to Safari to Chrome browser. Have I been spoiled from the flawless scrolling on different mobile devices I've used (iPad, Galaxy Nexus, etc) or is there something wrong? It's a completely fresh install with the only apps I've installed so far being Chrome, Dropbox, Google Drive and SkyDrive.

    Thanks for any input :)

    App Store is indeed choppy even on the MBP.
    The rest are fine... so far at least.

    There also is a software update available right away. Make sure you updated

    Okay, so at least I know it's not just me!

    I do have the newest update installed. I just find it weird that my Samsung ultrabook scrolls smoother than my MBA. Weird. Everything else about the MBA is super slick though!

    Most of the scrolling lag is supposedly fixed in Mountain Lion.

    That is with retina. I don't really know anyone with scrolling lag on the Air

    Yes, with Retina MBP, too, but the use of core animation should help all devices running Mountain Lion. That is at least what I have been reading. :)
