    What about getting Target Disk Mode on the 2011 Air thanks to Thunderbolt implementation?

    I mean, it's bidirectional and can carry FireWire data, so why not? Do you guys think it's this is feaseable?

    My predictions for 2011 Air: Thunderbot (I take this for granted), Target Disk Mode and backlit keyboard.

    11": i5 1.4 GHz with an i7 1.6 GHz option for the 128 GB version, both are 17 W
    13": i7 2.1 GHz with an i7 2.3 GHz option for the 256 GB version, both are 25 W

    AND I'd be the happiest person in the world IF 4 GB came standard (even only on the upgraded 128 and 256 GB versions) with a 8 GB option, but this is very very unlikely.

    IF these come true, I'm sold for a 11" i7 4/128 GB and I hope I can talk my sister down to sell the Air.

    SB processor = 100%

    Thunderbolt = 65%~ we may not see it on the air until the major update in 2012....

    Backlit keyboard = 10%~ probably not happening. apple dropped it for a reason. if apple wants to maximize battery life with the new ULV SB procs, backlit keyboard is a no go.


    i just want a SB proc! everything else is a bonus.
