    I'm going to be buying a macbook air early november when they come out, but I'm still deciding on whether or not to get the 1.6 or 1.86. I'll run photoshop and lightroom ocasionally on the road but I'll generally use a desktop for these 2 programs.

    Is the 1.86 worth the $200 difference?

    It is definitely relative to the individual. I am currently using the 1.8/ssd version an editing images in Photoshop CS3 is snappy.

    I honestly would not be able to tell you whether the .2 difference would be too discernible for your workflow, but if you can afford it, it wouldn't hurt to go with the higher processor speed.

    Hope this helps somewhat
