First off, the new MBAs were on display, as I am sure at most stores by now. Both Rev Cs were on display and could NOT see lines anywhere and have YET to see lines on an MBA at this store (Legacy Village, OH) Anyway, played with the 2.13 and like others have said, it is SNAPPY. Launched anything and everything in a jiffy; cool. Went back and forth between youtube and Hulu and never witnessed a stutter or dropped frame. That said, I only played stuff in 480, which still looks amazing (to me). As I have stated before, my main objective is portability for resdencies and field placements for school...writing, keynote, web, email, and may try once or twice a year to watch a movie or even edit something using imovie or FCexpr, just for giggles. (wife is IT with a ton of ext HDs) No lines, fast as hell for my needs, and beautiful to work with. I have finally decided. I was actually gonna go 13MBP till they pulled that SATA crap reduction on us, Any ideas yay or nay? Would you go with 13 MBP despite SATA malarchy? Also, was wondering if the lines are somehow a regional thing. I am not an old guy....if I would put my face any closer to that machine they would make me buy due to making out wiht it.
