    how is the speed of it? do you think a lil slower 1.6 would be a good purchase? also how is the screen is it completely free of defects (dead pixels, stuck pixels, dust, etc.)

    Looking forwarded to details!

    My old PC laptop is on its last leg and time for a new laptop. Not excited about learning Vista and decided if I have to essentially learn a new OS, great time to switch. After researching the different MacBooks, I have opted to go with the Air. Simply because it meets my needs (light) and I have the money to afford it (stylish). Looking forward to your reviews and details.

    I seriously doubt they would do this.

    After all, the display in the new MB is not so much of a shock - the previous Macbook was pitiful also.

    OP's not responding. Hope the explosion did not require the paramedics.

    Obviously, 20W in a small enough setting could generate a nuclear fusion reaction - causing the fans to spin up to 6,200.

    Especially with a lame ass GPU. Known fusion catalyst.

    The rev A air PROVED that.

    I think I missed something. What are the specs of the OP's machine? 2.0 is just suggesting it's the new MB Air. So I'd be curious to know.

    I mostly want to know about the display.

    Well, the New MBA has an improved graphics card, SSD drive is 128 instead of 64 which is VERY nice, and I think the display is improved. Though that is yet to be decided :)

    They had the display units (1.86ghz 128SSD) out here at the Apple store. The display on the demo unit's at least was the same as the first generation.

    Yea I would go with the SSD, its totally worth it!

    Just thinking though, and I did not hear anything about this:

    Since the graphics card works diff, wouldn't the display be somewhat diff? At least its connections. So updating might be a pain!
