I've hold out for so long it's killing me. it's been worth it i guess because from the time i first thought about buying an MBA at all till now, the price has dropped another $200 for the Rev A. But i still don't know which one to get: What I do with it: email/lots of movie watching while traveling - downloads, Hulu, House, etc. /photography (some picture editting)/blogging and basic graphic design( hoping to start using iWeb) Other related factors: 1)ongoing back problems, so the weight is a big factor, which is why am not considering other heavier ones... 2)wrist/hand problems, possible carbo tunel (don't know how to spell it)...so the swipe function seems very helpful. 3)I get a bit of anxiety carrying around things I paid a lot of money for...which is why I don't have an iphone cos i know i will drop it....so buying the more expensive one and bringing it to deveping countries where i go often for work makes me somewhat nervous... But the most important thing to consdier for me, is based on all of you who have used an MBA, if the cheaper one can do all the things i listed without hicup. WHICH ONE SHOULD I GET? $999 - Refurbished REV A or the new ones? is it really worth the $600 more based on my needs?
