    Awesome machines. Just STUNNING!

    Only thing I wished was for a 8GB RAM BTO option. Maybe next spec bump :)

    Been waiting since MBA V1.0, and believe its the first time that  have got all the stars in alignment. Well worth the wait, will get a maxed out 13", tempted to get the 11" as well.

    Just a beautiful piece of design & engineering.

    I was hoping for more RAM as well. Don't care too much about the color of the bezel; I would be more interested in an anti-glare screen. I do like the screen resolutions though!

    yeah, was that a glossy screen (livable), or horrible glassy screen Steve previewed?

    You can order an anti-glare display from a third-party reseller for less than $200.

    I am so happy we don't have the black glare bezel. It was the one part I wasn't hopeful they would adopt that I really thought was a certainty. Glad to be wrong. And glad they used the glass too.

    Who's the third party reseller. Do they replace the screen or just an AG sheet you put over?

    No they don't install it for you. No it's not a film cover.

    It's an actual display. It's just the display, so you need to take apart the MBA to do it. I was surprised to see them actually, I was looking for a new LCD for a 52" Toshiba Regza TV and saw MBA anti-glare displays. Will look through my bookmarks some other time and post the link. However, might just be able to search and find it easily.

    I think its an identity thing with the Aluminum bezel.

    The white macbook has a white bezel, the silver airs have silver bezels, and the macbook pros have black bezels. I wanted a black bezel until I noticed this on their website with all three machines together.

    Is it definitely glass fronted?

    *edit, it doesn't have glass:
