    Im on the fence on buying a 2012 Air vs a heavily discounted 2011 Air because not much has changed. But for me the biggest selling point is USB3 because the Thunderbolt Hype has slowly materialized and what we see is much more expensive and much less available product than anticipated. USB3 enables me to still have high speed data for my photowork but at a minimal cost since USB3 is everywhere and has no markup.

    But what about you? Whats do you feel is the most compelling feature of the 2012 Air?

    Edit: Oh great. I forgot to put USB3. :eek: Well i guess that now falls into the storage section. <facepalm>

    I currently have FireWire drives for my primary backup and even though a FW adapter is coming soon, Ive found that almost any HDD you buy nowadays is USB3 which is why Im abandoning my dreams for Thunderbolt. Even though they marketed it to the consumer market, the pricing makes it more of a true "Pro" feature I guess.

    Ivy Bridge and RAM/storage, but if I have to choose between the two, it's definitely the latter. 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD is perfect for me.
