    I just use developer tools for programming and I have a 2010 13'MBP. Looking at the new sandy bridge releases, I was wondering if its a good idea to sell the MBP for the MBA. The air would have 4gb ram (should be ok for dev) and a SSD instead of me attaching one to my MBP.

    thats what i plan to do. but still unsure that i will be sacrificing the fact that i cant upgrade the ram and the SSD.

    Performance wise I think the Air would be better? There are a plethora of Geekbench links floating around here. Personally I planned on getting a 13 inch MBA but seeing that with education discount, it would be 60 more than the base MBP, I'm just going to go with the Pro.

    I'll probably want to upgrade the internals later in the future and... well you can't do that with an Air.

    Performance will be improved and having the SSD will make the system feel snappier. I say go for it. And like just about everyone on the internet has said, go for the 4GB/128GB SSD model if you are considering the 11".
