Let's all be honest now, we're not in this for osx, build, the untouchable trackpad, the battery and certainly not because its specs render it perfectly usable for everyday tasks at a fraction of the weight and size of similarly-specced notebooks. We're in this because of the wow. Genetically this thing is purer than Eve. Aesthetic bombshell. Given the faculty, it'd espouse nothing but world peace. If i ever choose to pass by mine own hand, I need no blade other than Zeus's own 0.11" taper. We revel in the fact that the MBA opens programs faster than any netbook can ever dream of. But our hearts are contented fifty-fold if a stranger passes but one compliment. Feeling a little guilty, maybe exposed? Don't be. Our largely culturally-driven aesthetic desires aren't entirely maladaptive. The MBA and many Apple products are social devices. They can literally generate interaction. Heck Jobs himself in a recent keynote mentioned something about getting a email from a guy who thanked him for inventing the iPad as he met his gf after it got her attention. So tell us about the interest you're receiving towards your MBAs, new or old, and in what setting My old MBA got quite a lot of attention, mainly at airporst (I don't do the Mac-Starbucking-rimmed glasses thing). Specific anecdotes as I remember them. I've included a poll as to whether or not your MBA is generating more interest than your previous notebook for both 11" and 13" models.
