One thing I just realized about the new MacBook Airs: The 11" and 13" models max out at the same processors and hard-drive space. With the previous generation, if you wanted the fastest processor...

Interesting perspective because for me it's between the 11" Air or the 13" MBP. I don't really consider the 13" Air because for approx. the same footprint the MBP is more powerful for your money. I...

Agree with Jason about the RAM. Why not offer 8 GB as BTO option?
