    In the brief reviews I've seen, the Macbook Air is credited with great viewing angles.

    I just bought the 11" base model. While the horizontal viewing angles are great, the vertical ones are modest. It's definitely decent if you look at the screen straight on or from above, but it fades quickly and inverts when you look at it from below level even to a modest degree.

    I have the 2008 unibody aluminum Macbook; the one that was quickly renamed the Macbook Pro and provided with a better screen and an SD slot. To me, the viewing angles are definitely improved but I don't have a Macbook Pro to compare it with, or the previous generation Air.

    Can anyone weigh in?

    I'll take a shot in the dark and guess that the 13" model has better viewing angles than the 11". I see it as a more professional device. I think that's what Apple is trying to get at.
