Wow, $850 for an ultimate 11" too.

How is Mac Mall's return policy? I looked it up on their website and it looks like I'd have to pay to ship it back, but it doesn't mention blowout deals. Is there any reason I wouldn't be able to return this?

The reason I'm asking is that my roommate spilled water on my macbook two days ago and I'm letting it dry out in a bag of rice before turning it on. When the water hit it the screen turned off, so I'm assuming that it's probably toast. If it doesn't work, I need a new computer for grad school by the end of the week. This deal ends tonight, but I can't turn my computer on to see if it works until tomorrow night. Do any of you foresee any problems if I order this and end up returning it in the slim chance that my current macbook still works?

The performance of these machine is nothing compared to the new gen ones.
How much faster does the i5 open a Safari browser or run 1080p YouTube? Because that is what most computer users use their laptops for. Any real power users would get an iMac, MBP, or even a Mac Pro.

Just bought this deal from Macmall a couple days ago... Love the air! It is a good deal imho, that's why I bought it!

I do have to say dealing with Macmall was one of the most frustrating experiences of my life... That is if you have a different billing address from shipping address. But that's over and it's worth it!

And it comes with a 100 gift card if you call in your order... and they sold me apple care for 190$ instead of the normal 250.

I am so close to pulling the trigger on one of these 2010 13" MBA's... For my needs, it would be just fine. Microcenter has the 2GB/256GB for 899. So with tax, it would be ~$950. It's just for my couch needs (surfing, journaling, light MS Office usage, and learning XCode). What to do, what to do....

Tempting for me too. I mean my only computer is my MBP (see sig)... Hmm... this or iPad 3 in February/March?

For me, I'm certain that I want an MBA over an iPad. I do want a full OS for my full applications.

I also have a line on an open box 13" MBA 1.8, 2/128 for ~830 with no tax. That is also very tempting. I just think for Lion and beyond, 2GB is probably not a great idea.... But then again, this is not my primary machine, so would 2GB be OK?

very tempting but I just can't bring myself to buy a core 2 duo, when i5 and i7 is so much faster.

Is it? what do you do with your laptop that requires so much?

i have a 2010 13 ultimate that blazes thru everything i throw at it - mind you, i don't do any graphics intensive tasks, but for business needs, wow, i see no reason to spend more for the iX series.

I got an 11" Air, it's being delivered today. Thanks a lot to Kendo for the original post and also to dlimes13 for the Apple Insider tip. I just checked and the price of the same model went up by $300 since yesterday, and a refurb of the same model from Apple is $200 higher than what I paid.

I might still send it back if my Macbook Pro miraculously works, but if not this seems like an awesome replacement.

I just placed my order for the 11" Ultimate after having used my 13" Ultimate 2010 when it was first released. $872 overnighted to me. Great stuff.

Anyone want an excellent condition 13" Ultimate? :D
