Is your MBA your only computer? If not, what other computer(s) do you own, notebook or desktop, pc or mac? My new MBA is serving 90% of my needs, I also have a T500 and a HP Desktop which I use for Windows based app's, Publisher etc. I'm contemplating making some more changes.... I download torrents once in a while from the net, and play a variety of files, .avi etc ... so I need a computer stationary on a desk for that, plus it's used as a server, storage, entertainment etc, and once in a while I like to use a the larger monitor ... The new iMac's look really nice, I'm thinking that could replace my HP Desktop, I'm wondering how the Mac would be for torrent downloads, playing avi files etc, I could load Windows on it too and work in Windows for tasks like that ... Someone else suggested I forget the iMac's and get another laptop, the MacBook Pro 15" and using that as our central computer and with the option that it's portable if I want to bring it with me ... if I could I'd use nothing but my MacBook Air I'd be happy... it's a GREAT notebook ... best I've owned so far, fun to work on, great screen, LOVE it !
