    Hi there,

    I have a mid 2009 MBP.
    2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    upgraded the hard drive to Intel SSD 80GB

    I would like to replace this machine with MBA. But since the MBA only comes with 4GB RAM maximum, would it outperform my current MBP?

    I use Parallels a lot for doing .NET development. I've currently assigned 4GB to the VM and 4GB to OSX.

    Things are running smoothly with the current setup. But I want the portability of the MBA.

    Should I upgrade?

    Thanks in advance

    I would like to know the comparison too even though I'd be running Tomcat and Eclipse.
