This argument to me is pointless. If someone is planning on hooking this thing to a 27" Apple Cinema Display, they really wasted their money. With non-expandable storage, and no docking station to get gigabit or other functions, this seems a poor cop. More then that, the Air is using the Nvidia 320, which is in the process of being wiped out by the Ion2 and 400M, which Nvidia announced was replacing the 300 series almost 2 months ago: http://blogs.nvidia.com/ntersect/2010/09/new-geforce-400m-series-notebook-gpus-arrive-for-the-holidays.html So, you're using a graphics chip in this that is a generation and a half back that chokes on outputting 1080P, and you're doing it on a platform that doesn't support bluray in a non-expandable form. I -get- the 13'. It could be used as a replacement, a full laptop. But how much "work" are you getting done on an 11.6 with an SU9400 Core type processor? Cult of Mac pretty much nailed this: I'm just struggling to see the gain in that model. I think the 13" model has some traction, it's a viable full function laptop. But I can't make sense of either of these. I get that they are using the older video type because it's both cheaper and likely less heat in newer die shrinks.
