    Quick question about the screen difference, I know that the macbook air screen is alot better than the macbook. Is there a big difference in watching movies on the two screens?

    I usually don't have many nice things to say about the original MBA, but even the original MBA has a display far nicer than the uMB. It is unfortunate just how bad the display is on the MB. I would say that the worst reason to buy a MB would be for entertainment and videos. I would think the MB would be acceptable by a business user or writer who only use Pages, Numbers, Word, Keynote, and Excel.

    For fun the MBA has a many times nicer display. For video, for fun, for clearness, and for long days of looking at the display, the MBA is the way to go. I really realized the difference was so great the day that I bought my rev B MBA and put them side by side. Crazy just how different the MB and MBA displays are.

    Go MBA for certain if you want to watch any video on it.
