Hi all, Just a quick idea of where I'm coming from: I originally needed a 2nd office computer (to split work from the office and home). I wanted to try moving into the mac platform so I bought a 2011 Mac Mini. Primarily, I'm really happy with it as a home computer. The way it handles basic stuff like photos, videos, music, sharing, etc is awesome. But I'm finding that I still get way more done and far more quickly in Windows 7 as a desktop. Do however find that working on an Apple laptop to be far quicker than a Windows laptop. So what I'm thinking is I'll let my wife have the newer Mini, and I'll sell her 2010 Mini and purchase a MBA. The main use of the computer is going to be showing work to clients, using it as a presentation tool, basic coding while I'm out and about. I'm thinking the MBA can do all that soundly without much trouble at all, and it seems like it is very portable. If I've done my research correctly, what I'm seeing is that you definitely want to get 4gb of ram as it's integrated directly to the board. I think for mobility, I'd like to get the 11" as the extended battery life isn't critical. My main question is that I keep seeing that "instant on" isn't that instant on the 2011's versus the 2010's. So it's making me think I want to get a 2010 and keep SL on it. Does anyone think the 2010's are significantly slower than the 2011's to the point that it's worth the extra frustration? The "instant" part is what is really attracting me as I'm going to be in front of clients and I'd like it to just be as slick as possible.
