I purchased a 13" MBA max from my local Apple Store about 10 days ago. After using it extensively, I'm convinced I cannot live without the lighted keyboard. Most of my use is at night on the couch or in bed when I don't need to use my iMac. I'm not a very good typist, so being able to see the keys in a dark room is almost a must. When I purchased it, I had no idea it lacked a lighted keyboard and an IR receiver. Both of kids have current model 13" MBP's and quite frankly, the screens, keyboards and battery are superior to the Air. I really wanted to like this computer and for the 1st 5-7 days I did, but the disadvantages outweigh the advantages, at least for me. If I we're to exchange it, do you think Apple will waive the restocking fee?
