Aside from the great price I got from Bestbuy along with a free Apple TV, I have versions of software like MS office that won't work with Lion. It's something to consider when you are shopping for the MBA. I bought the basic 2010 11 inch for $750 with Bestbuy's same as cash deal for 18 months, far better than what Apple is offering, finance-wise. No, I'm not a BB employee. Also Lion seems troublesome and for now I prefer trusty 10.6.8. I'll stay with it on all my macs until Lion is really stable.
