    The Apple pages keep referring to the refreshed MacBook Air as a "unibody" design. Does this mean that it shares the same overall stiffness as the aluminum MacBook/MacBook Pros, or is is still the thin "flimsy" aluminum like the prior-generation MacBook Pros - the kind where if you'd push or bump it any, it would have a dent?

    thanks!

    Apparently this is no different with the unibodies, judging by the number of "omg i have a dent in my new unibody/why doesn't apple fix it for free???" threads in the MB/MBP forums.
