Seriously, what does everyone have against the MacBook Air? The MacBook Air was designed to be the world's thinnest laptop; the perfect companion to anyone who frequently brings their notebook with them. It's not meant to be a "compact MacBook Pro" or a super-powerful laptop. People who are on the go probably won't need tons of FireWire ports, a blazing fast CPU, or the ability to expand RAM. They just want a portable computer that works. If you want a powerful notebook, then buy the MacBook Pro. Don't expect the MacBook Air to be a MacBook Pro replacement, as that's not what it's made for. Again, it's meant to be the world's thinnest notebook.
