    This is going to be my new setup. Is anyone else looking to get this?

    That setup is really the docking station we always wanted Apple to release, just expensive and lacking a little practicality. (USB only, FW would have been nicer for attached HDD access)

    The new 24" LED Cinema display with a couple big external hard drives stacked behind it, a BT mouse and Keyboard on the desk and a printer plugged into your Airport. Add any of the 3 new laptops and that could be an excellent setup.

    This will be my setup as soon as the air can support 4GB of RAM. Hopefully this will happen by the end of the summer.

    New ACD might not be Air "compatible"

    Look at the new LED Cinema Display, the cord breaks into three cords near the end (power, mini-DP, and USB). By the looks of it, the split leaves only a couple inches of cord after the split, clearly designed for the MB and MBP, which both have all of those ports on the same side. The MBA has the power on the opposite side and it appears that it might not reach both sides unless they sell some sort of adapter.

    On close inspection, it looks like it should reach, but I would check it out in the store before buying...

    I'm considering getting the new aluminum MacBook 2.0 GHz. If I buy this new Cinema Display, will I benefit from increasing the RAM from 2GB to 4GB. Or does it not make a difference?

    Also, in a stock 2GB RAM configuration, would the MacBook 2.4 GHz run the monitor any better than the 2.0 GHz model? (I know they have the exact same graphics card in there).

    Sexy! Although I am buying a MacBook 2.4 instead of the Air in December. Also A Time Capsule and a Mac Wireless Keyboard. Then my Path down the dark side will be complete.
