I purchased the new one today because I needed something a lot more portable than my current Macbook Pro and am really loving it so far. The thinness and weight (or lack thereof) is unbelievable for a 13". It's a great solution for someone who is very mobile, cares about the design, and really cares about screen quality (Macbook Pro 15" screen resolution on a 13" Air). It's quite sturdy and feels solid due to its unibody construction and has a very luxurious feel. Love it! Definitely consider it if you're looking for a new, portable notebook for school, business, or leisure. It's NOT for someone who needs a lot of processing power. Casual use? It's great. Please don't turn this into an "Apple bashing" thread where you don't have anything to contribute to this conversation.
