Had a 2010 MBP 13 base. Gave that to nephew and just bought the 2011 MBP base a few weeks ago from macmall on ebay. $1080 after some cash back and ebay bucks. Now I got a nice deal for a base 11" MBA via ebay and some cash back offers from macmall. $791. cons of MBA: No lit KB No SD slot. I always carry a 500gb portable with me so HD space is not a concern. I dont do any video processing with my MBP, thats what the iMac is for. Anyone who has owned both, can you please comment. TIA!
