Background.... I have a Core2Duo 15inch Macbook Pro, I have a infuriating problem with Wifi dropping out exactly every 10 minutes (widely known bug that apple dont seem to want to fix because wifi works perfectly in cuppertino ). My DVD Drive is almost kaput, the thing isnt built very sturdy and the thing decides to power off randomly (with no warning) whilst on battery.... annoying!! So.... Im currently working/living in Germany with very regular commute back to England via a mix of car and aeroplane. I REALLY need a new laptop, asap. As from November i will probably be in the evil clutches of ryanair i have decided to go for a 13 incher this time round (for portability). Questions: Has anyone had any wifi issues with the Macbook Air? I would be looking at a 13 incher with 256gb SSD and upgraded CPU. Does anyone have problems with the 4gb RAM Limit? i do find myself running out of ram. Can I downgrade it to Snow Leopard? (dont like lion). Can the Air run VM with Windows 7 fine? Im really torn between three laptops at the moment: Macbook Air 13, Macbook Pro 13 & Sony Vaio SA I can live with Windows, I do use Windows 7 on my macbook and I use RDP to use a Windows 7 VM daily. I have been disappointed with my macbook and am not tied into the Apple ecosystem what so ever. Cheers for the advice.
