    I can't decide which I want:

    Voodoo:
    2 USB, 1 Express Slot, Wireless Hub Power Brick
    Removable Battery
    Instant-On OS

    MacBook Air:
    Runs OS X

    I really can't think of much more than that for the Air. I love OS X and thats why I haven't bought either. Mind you this is ignoring that Apple may release an update soon for the MBA cause if they do then I have my answer. But if they don't I don't know which I want! I love aluminum, but I am not a fan of the rounded corners apple put on the MBA.

    There's not a huge difference in specs (just one usb port and .06" at the widest point), so OS X could be the deal maker here. I imagine we're not too far from a MBA refresh which should see a small advantage in processor and storage options for the Air over the Voodoo.

    Yeah, you really have to wait until after the 14th (when we should see an update) With that being said you must specify what you are looking for .

    Yeah I am going to wait for the 14th. It would be so nice to see an update on anything from the price to the hdd to the processor. I went and played with the MBA after I posted this message, gotta say I love it. I am not the biggest fan of the rounded corners but whatever they'll grow on me.

    Just mad the 14th is still a week away! I want it!!!!!

    It seems a safe bet that the MB will receive a significant update on the 14th. It's less clear that the MBP will be refreshed, although it's hard to see how Apple will be able to continue selling the current version, since it'll be closer to the new MB.

    But I find it odd that none of the major rumor sites is saying anything about the MBA at this point. I'd like to see an updated Air with a larger HDD/SSD, more memory, and so on, but I'm prepared to be disappointed.

    Lenovo X300.

    If it must be those 2, then the Air.
