I'm very impressed with this little thing. I used to have the most recent version of the 15" Macbook Pro, 2.2 GHz, 8 GB, hires antiglare and SSD, but I killed that one off with water. Turns out a leaky water bottle (didn't know it was leaking) really makes huge damage to the Macbook Pro that is below it... Anyway, I decided that my replacement should be something a bit more portable so I got the 11 Air, fully equipped and with a Thunderbolt display to use at home. I must say that I am really impressed by the speed and size of the thing. I thought the MBP would have spoiled me and sure, the MBP hugely fast but the Air almost as fast for daily work, much faster then my Mac Mini from this spring (pre update). The 11 Air and the Thunderbolt display is really my ideal setup. I have the Thunderbolt display hooked up to my wired network so whenever I need a huge monitor I also get the faster network. I was always reminded that I had the Pro with me but I hardly notice the Air at all, It really takes up much less room in the messenger. One other thing the Air does much much better then the Pro is wifi. The 2011 Pros really have crappy wireless performance, the Air does not. Not sure if this was of any help to anyone but it is what it is.
