    Hmm.... looks like a very nice machine, but I'd have to try one out first. Looks like upgrading RAM is out though, which is a big :( for me as I'd want to port over my latest 4GB kit that I just got last week for my MBP were I to get one.

    £1200 we recon - same as base spec Sony TZ, although expect the TZ to drop in price as well I'd imagine.

    It might do, but if you really want to break it, you need to send it via CityLink.

    Check out Apple.com if you want a glimpse of what the Air looks like.. I'm trying to find out whether or not this is the first notebook based on Montevina.

    Apple store (US) is back up, guess that's it. No One More Thing?

    Huh. As usual, overhyped to heck. The Air looks really nice, but all things considered is impractical for me, at least for the price (I still want something smaller than a Macbook, not just thinner). I know a magic way to knock $200 off the price, but even still it's not or me. Xserve it is I suppose (where that same magic knocks $600 off :D)

    This MacBook Air sounds like a rich man's toy. You are expected to have another computer just to be able to read discs... clever idea, but is it practical?

    would rather get the air than the normal mac book! but if i was gonna spend upwards of £1200 on an apple laptop it would defiantly be on the MBP!

    you say tht but most people do have at least one computer in their hoses these days, we have 4 and two are sitting in my room now!

    most of the people on this site probably have at least 3 going right now as well!
