Deal-breaker #1 - Bezel to the max MBA is even longer and wider than a MB - 15.613" diagonal with only a 13.3" screen. Its massive bezel around the screen was the first thing I noticed about it. That's okay (albeit annoying) in a low-end MB, but hard to justify in a high-end MBA whose only selling point is portability and cutting-edge design. The bezel should be 1" thinner (like the MBP), either by reducing the machine size or increasing the screen. Deal-breaker #2 - No matte I have both a matte PB and the latest glossy MB - and the glossy MB screen is really sub-par. I want a matte option in a $1.8-3.0K machine. Deal-breaker #3 - No dock I can see having no optical drive and other lost ports if there were a dock included to provide full functionality - but this baby's got nothing! No firewire, no ethernet, no audio in, no stereo speakers, no CD/DVD... everything hanging on a single USB2 port?!? Deal-breaker #4 - Lousy hard drive The MBA lives or dies by its hard drive, and its only option (under $3K) is a crummy 80GB 4200-rpm PATA drive?!? Even the $350 iPod holds 160GB! With great deals available like $200 for WD Scorpio 320GB SATA, why put this 80GB dog under the MBA hood? Deal-breaker #5 - High bucks for the bang With all these negatives, and only one positive (thinness), the $1800 price is way too much, especially considering that Apple further nickel-and-dimes accessories to bring the MBA anywhere near MB capabilities: $99 for superdrive, $29 for ethernet adapter, about $20 for USB2 micro hub, and $19 for Apple Remote (included free with all other MBs - talk about adding insult to injury).
