I'm a huge MacBook Air fan. I've owned every model except for this one and I went into the Apple Store in Fashion Island today to check them out. I walked in to see that the first 3 tables were filled with the new Airs. Literally these things had taken over the store. Where with the previous airs they had 1 SSD model and 1 HDD model on the wall tables in the corner. This time they had a full table of 11", 13" and a wall table of 11" models! When I worked at the Apple Store the sales people would literally convince people out of the air's and into 13" Pro's. Now, from the looks of it they want to sell you only airs. I wasn't that blown away by the machines. The 11.6 inch was exciting to look at but not life changing like the first air. Everyone whose had an Air before though should be really happy with the new 13" fully spec'd. Ton of machine compared to what we were offered in the past. The 11.6 unfortunately felt netbooky. It doesn't matter that it's not spec'd like a netbook, it just feels very similar to one. No matter what Apple does, if they enter this size then they are coming into netbook territory and regardless of it's power plant users are going to make the connection between the two. It would be hard for me to throw down over $1k for the 11.6 because it just feels like it should be cheaper. Regardless of my opinion, for those wanting to know where the future of Apple notebooks are heading, the new Air is the window to the next 3 years of MacBooks. I geekbenched the 13" 1.86 128 at 2705 and the 11.6 1.4 64 at 2075, very decent scores for what they are. To compare my 2.4 core i5 with 8gb of ram scored 4875. Now I need to convince myself that having 2 laptops is a necessary thing in my life.
