I went to the Apple store in SF today and they had about 6 Airs out. I did notice they seemed pretty snappy. I looked at the profiler and they are all the 1.8 ssd model. It seemed snappy at opening and closing programs due to the SSD drive but for the extra 1300 no thanks. It was only formated to 53gb. I am sure apple made all the displays the faster model to help sales. They have not done anything dishonest as the tags next to the demo list both models and the sales person will tell you it is the faster model.
