I recently purchased a first gen macbook air for a good price on craigslist and I am very happy with it! I bought it for my trips to the coffee shop and daytrips to nyc and so far it's worked great. I have experienced some hiccups watching divx files in VLC but nothing horrible. I don't miss the lack of a superdrive and haven't had a need for one although it'd probably be a wise purchase down the line. Anyway, I think it's been a great compliment to my desktop pcs and my mac mini.
