    Recently picked up a 3.33 GHZ Westmere Mac Pro so I decided I could downsize my laptop from i7 15" to MacBook Air 2.13 GHZ 256 GB 4GB. So far so good. I'm happy with the change. i7 use to be my only machine.

    not a bad move. I'd have done the same actually.

    recently i was debating between buying a laptop first or a desktop first but i should eventually get both. then i realize if i buy a power laptop first, i'll still get a power desktop. but if i get a power desktop first, i can save some money and buy a MBA instead.

    How you liking the Air? I have a similar situation: just built a pretty beastly desktop so I'm considering getting either a MacBook air, or a 13" MBP to replace my 15" Early 2008 MBP.

    which i7 did you have? AG high res?

    If so, I think you took a pretty big loss price wise. Glad you like the new MBA though!

    wow, i would never do that.

    just curious.. why downgrade such a new machine? the air and the 15" mbp are both in the same range of portability, but now with the air you just have a less powerful laptop.. :confused:

    i'm guessing you had extra cash after the trade?

    Since my notebook is main computer I would never do that. But it just proves how different our needs can be ;) Good luck with your new MBA!
