I've been lurking here for a few weeks, but I finally purchased a MacBook Air. It's actually my first Mac. I've been a PC user for 15 years, and I never really considered getting a Mac until I got the iPhone a couple of years ago. Ever since then I have been considering switching over to a Mac so as to keep both my computer and my iPhone in sync with eachother. I'm also not a fan of Vista, and XP doesn't seem to be an option on any of the new PCs except for tiny Netbooks. The Rev B Air was a little bit too pricey for me, but I found a brand new Rev A 1.6 GHz/80 GB HDD for $1099. I also purchased an AirPort Express and a Wireless Mighty Mouse as I'm not a huge fan of touch pads. I spent a couple of weeks reading on this forum about the various issues with the Rev A MacBook Air and after considering everything, I don't think it will be an issue for me. I do all my "heavy lifting" on my PC at work, which is a powerhouse of a machine. The Air will be what I use around the house and when I ocassionally travel. 95% of my use is just normal web browsing, email and instant messaging. I do watch an occasional youtube video, but not full screen, and rarely for longer than a few minutes. The only gaming I do is web-based gaming like online poker. I'm also not one to have huge amounts of media files, so the 80 GB HDD is plenty large. My old Dell laptop which I'm replacing has a 60 GB HDD which is more than half empty. I plan to get a MobileMe subscription as that seems to be a good solution for syncing the Air with my iPhone and also a good way to back up my files online.
