Well, my MBA is now replaced...I think.

    I have a refurb Rev A, and am extremely happy with it except for a few minor things. However, I needed more of a dedicated computer than the MBA was...so I bought a 13" MBP today. Honestly, I'm kind of disappointed.

    My MBA screen is leaps and bounds above the MBP. Unbelievable difference. The MBP is darker, and the colors seem off. Is there a way to adjust that?
    I don't mind the glossy surface...but I'm just amazed at the difference in quality.

    I'll tell you though, this MBP is FAST. Holy crap. It is nice to see video that doesn't chop, and it is nice to not burn my leg when I have video playing.

    I'm on the fence though--I LOVE my MBA and it is going to hurt to put this on ebay.

    Did the same thing (ditched my MBA for an MBP). Lasted about 3 days...I'm just a sucker for the Air and am expecting a new one in a couple days and the MBP is going back.

    If your only problem with Air was video playback and it not feeling fast enough, you may want to try to exchange your MBP (paying the difference of course) for revision C/SSD... So far all people who have one say video problems are finally gone. I find it easy to believe since they're almost gone in revision B already (only stuttering with HD encoded in h.264).
