    Yup,

    Day one, I'm gonna order me an 11 ultimate. Waiting and anticipating is pretty sweet at this point, :D especially since I don't have to make my mind up between the 11 and 13 :p :D

    Here's hoping for MONDAY BABY!!!



    Who else is with us? Who is gonna buy DAY ONE, and what are you planning?

    Me too :)

    I'm planning to get the 13" MBA with the highest available additional RAM available. Hopefully, 4GB will be standard.

    Hopefully 4gb standard and 8gb optional, but that may be a little out past reality... if so, though :eek:

    Hardware refreshes are on Tuesdays lol

    I probably won't buy day one, as I want to read some reviews first (sensible buyer? Who would do such a thing!?)... but I do plan - at this point - for an ultimate 13" to be my next laptop before the summer ends :D

    If the 11" Air somehow comes with a 256GB hard drive.. I think I'll be sold on the first day. Would love that extra space to run both Windows and Mac comfortably with apps.

    I am not going to buy for I just got mine in February. But I am so looking forward to reading the reviews and I hope that the new air is so much better that I will be envious. That means in a few years time if I do upgrade, it should be 4 fold my C2D.

    Nope, happy with our 3 11"ers, not until the reviews bury and beat the current NVIDIA graphics offering, and then only after my buddy Scottsdale and HellHammer say so.(always go with the opinions of people, smarter than you)

    Refurbs, ALL I buy!

    The back lit keyboard is still a concern that i'm weighing. If the backlit keyboard is there i'm sold for a 13 inch.

    sadly they won't qualify for the Back to School deal, and that'll get me more savings. if i sell the iPod.

    Can't wait to replace my 2007 MacBook pro. New MBA is faster and cheaper then mine!

    Yes. I have the money waiting in my account.

    I'll be buying the bottom end 13", assuming they keep the current 4 machine lineup. I don't need a 256GB SSD, and I need the battery life over a tiny bump in CPU speed as well.

    I will for sure buy the MAXED up 13 inch MBA at the 1st minute it being released!

    P/S: I had sold my 2010 MAXED up 13 inch MBA two weeeks ago :D

    No doubt that 2011 MBA will have a much improved performance.

    NVIDIA graphics benefits gamers but not too much on Photoshop and video editing which require a more powerful processor.
