    I've got a 2010 11" that I use on the road, on the couch and when traveling abroad. At home I have a 15" MBP attached to a 27" ACD. Right now I hate having the trouble of syncing data to both machines.

    It looks like the 13" i7 could replace both machines, anyone did the 11" to 13" switch and what do you think portability-wise?

    Consider the money you spent for the MacBook Pro and the 11" MacBook Air combined.

    Then consider the amount of money you would lose in order to get the new 13" MacBook Air.

    Is that money you lose worth not having to sync data? Or is it worth going through the hassle of syncing the data in order to save that amount?

    If the MacBook Pro is relatively new (since you didn't disclose the exact model), I would just keep both. After all, once Ivy Bridge and USB 3.0 (I hope) hit the new Airs, you're going to want the new model then too.

    just go for it... i came from an LCD + not so portable laptop + IPAD, and am now using a 13 inch MBA.

    i dont tough the ipad or desktop ANYMORE.

    mba 13 comes with me EVERYWHERE.

    AT HOME: dinner table, toilet doing business, couch watching TV, on my bed in the room
    EVERYWHERE ELSE: starbucks, to work, in the car, etc!

    This beast is not just a desktop replacement, its truly an anytime / anywhere laptop. 13 inches is more than enough to get real work done (programming, word processing, emails etc), so I don't even feel the need to go bad to the desktop.
