    its great that they are portable, but for the love of all that's technologically sound, give me user replaceable RAM!! not only that but id wager that the only place that solid state storage is available is from apple, wonder if its patented… just seems to me like apple are shoveling their users ever more far into their own ecosystem with these laptops. i don't see one user replaceable part on this machine and that's a worry for me. also, what are they thinking with the pricing structure?? sure its more portable and has better data read speeds and the likes, but put the entry level 13" macbook air spec against a 13" macbook pro entry level spec and you soon see that the pricing structure doesn't seem to stand up on its own two feet all that well. an entry level machine should be an enrty level price. over here in the UK a nice £500-£600 would keep apples premium brand image, but would also be a nice entry level price.

    its not worth it. too much expensive, ram and drive not user replaceable? wheres the sd card slot on the 11 inch? i will wait for other companies to produce core 2 duo netbooks and see from there.

    Hate to be an Apple fan but I just got mine and it is a true miracle of engineering and precision–they outdid themselves. Loaded Windows 7 (dual boot camp) which it runs faster than any high power windows laptop I have ever owned (maybe they are tapping into the graphics card to augment the dual processor but however it is being done — wow). Word, Excel, and Powerpoint pop up nearly instantly. The instant off and on feature they mentioned also works when Win7 is running.
