So I wanted to start a thread where people can discuss their reasons for purchasing a MBA, and help people realize what MBAs true market is. I'll start... I'm a college student who's always on the go. Currently I have a previous gen Mac Mini hooked up to a plasma in my apartment. The Mac Mini is great for my heaviest computing, hb-ing movies, and it's a great media server/pc. But I also needed something to be able to do some basic writing and websurfing on the go (library, coffeehouses, etc). Now I've owned an iPad and the issue came down to no physical keyboard without the dock, which wasn't always easy to throw into a backpack with the little stand numb. So thats why I purchased an 11" MBA, the size of the iPad screen was great, I just needed that physical keyboard. The MBA is that solution for me as a light-weight, ultra portable platform I can use to write and do research on.
