I've read through a lot of posts about the new 11,6" MBA, and after visiting the Apple store to test drive the machine myself I've come to the conclusion that it would be a good fit for my needs. I need a laptop to use at work as a secondary computer for both personal uses (email, facebook, spaceflightnow.com) and for business uses (running tests on demo versions of the web-based software that I support for a living). My only concern about the 11,6" model is the RAM: is 2 GB enough? I know I know, it makes sense to upgrade the RAM because I cannot do so on my own later on. But with my light use, I'm not sure I even need the additional RAM. Again, my uses: 1. Web browsing (95% of my use) 2. Microsoft Word (typing papers for school when I should be working) 3. Possibly some Microsoft Excel work once in a blue moon 4. iTunes Given these uses, I think 2GB might be enough, and the $90 I'd spend on upgrading the RAM could go towards more pressing issues, like putting food on the table. Some thoughts? Experiences? Complaints about how pointless my question is?
