Yeah good point, but I also want to see what's new with PC's.. Shirley there has to be a new sleek lightweight thing from HP or Dell right?

As for Mac.. IOS would be a deal killer for sure, I need flash.. so ok, sounds like a non-issue? Not being able to plug into a network also sounds like a bummer, huh... some hotels let you plug in in the room for free, but charge for WiFi. And our access points aren't the most rock solid at the office there are dead spots, like in our conference room in MN. shoot that may rule out the Air..

I didn't imply there wasn't a solution to the problem - just an observation of the limitations out of the box.

On retrospect my post sounded a little smartass. Wasn't intended that way.

Robin was looking at the air for her next upgrade. She just did not like the fact that the Air did not have any DVD drive or such. Yes there is a solution for this as well, but it was one more thing to carry around instead of all in one.
the 13 inch pro is a great unit, no dedicated video processor, but most will not use that unless you are gaming or using graphic software.
Anyhow I am sticking to my MBP 15in for now. I like it and I feel that it is not too heavy or slow.
