Well I couldn't resist it anymore and last night I headed to the Shinsaibashi Apple store in Osaka to see if they had any English keyboard MBAs in stock...they indeed did so I pulled the trigger on a 1.6/120 Rev. B MBA along with a superdrive, ethernet adapter, and a Tucano second skin case. Also got applecare for $50 USD less than usual. So far I'm really happy with it. The 1.6 is a touch slow (compared to my new 2.8 MBP) but as a secondary computer for work (teacher--MS Office mainly) and for travel and laying in bed with the internet it is absolutely perfect for my needs. Hard to think that just two months ago I was still using a Dell...what a drug Apple is... One thing though--I downloaded SMC Fan Control and it told me the Air is an unsupported machine and forces me to quit using it...ideas?
