    Im thinking of turning it on. Ive read some reviews etc and the consensus seems to be that there is a performance hit but the benefits outweigh this approx 20-30% hit.

    Ill prob turn it on over weekend. Im just wondering what MacBook Air 2011 users are doing?

    Maybe this is better placed in the MBA thread - can a moderator move it?

    I do not use FileVault. See no need for Full Disk Encryption unless my company demanded it.
