I like the new MBAs; but, their pricing is very deceptive, imo. Let's take a look at a real-world performing 11.6" version and the ACTUAL price: -64MB will never cut it for full-blown OSX, so 128GB = $1199 starting point. Then your likely to add: -1.6GHz Processor +100 (much faster than base) -4GB memory +100 (must for latest apps) -iWork +49 -3yr AppleCare Protection Plan +249 (!!) -Mini DisplayPort to DVI +29 -MagSafe Airline Adaptor +49 Total: $1775 + Tax!! For the smaller MBA. (And many of you may need more additions). If only the iPad ran Flash. I really like the new MBA features, minus the lack of backlit keyboard or simple overhead keyboard light (like the Lenovo T410). However, the price seems extreme for what you get and not the "substantial" reduction in price over the previous version that we where lead to believe. Maybe it might be better to wait for the next generation iPad or MacBooks with Sandy Bridge processors.
