    what is the difference between the standard 80gb parallel storage and the 64gb solid state in the MBA? I am a student and thinking about getting a mac laptop, either the regular macbook or the air but im not sure which one. I will probably by one in the next few months and want some other opinions.

    Thanks

    The SSD is faster, uses less power, more reliable, and has no moving parts. It also has a much longer lifespan.

    And a much larger price tag.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that Apple is offering it, but I think I'll wait till the price drops a little more.

    Plus the MacBook Air, (Is Nike OK with this name?), is a "REVISION A" product. IMHO, I think you'd be better off with a MB or a MBP, something standard and proven, then upgrade in a few years when the SSD HD technology is more mature, and cheaper.
