    Currently have an iBook g4 12 inch. Ordered the 11.6in 4/128 2010 Macbook air from macmall, Just wondering how the screen size is going to compare to my ibook.

    Forget screen size, you are going to be amazed at everything!!!

    I have a 12" iBook and the screen on the Air seemed a lot bigger. I haven't compared the dimensions, but the 11" is 16:9 instead of 16:10, and the 12" was 4:3. So physically it is wider, and the resolution is nice on it. I felt it very usable - I messed with word and XL since that is what I'd need it for in school.

    Having owned 2 12" laptops of the 4:3 variety, for a small laptop the 11" seems perfect and the 13" seemed HUGE (and that is coming form someone that owns a 17" MBP!). of course, I also don't find the iPad small to look at or type on.

    I think you will love it - Congrats on the upgrade!!!!!!
