anyone planning on getting Macbook Air
Any plans to get either model? If I can sell my wifes HP on craigslist I'm going to give her my new MBP (bought in June) and get the MBA. I just sold my 16GB 3G model on craigslist mainly because I didn't use it all that often. I would take it on plane rides but didn't care for the keyboard. Now with the MBA out I'm thinking about that. I rarely use CDs because the truck allows me to hook us EX-HD. I can pretty much download anything...including Microsoft Office for school and work. And I can wirelessly print at home with the new MBA (or any laptop). I'm not a huge gamer online so not worried about that.
As far as OSX Lion, will people with Macs have to buy it out right or will we get some sort of discount?

I'm still debating it. I just got a MacBook Pro and I think I'd miss the discreet graphics card, though 4GB of RAM is great to see as a build-to-order option.
Leopard was a $129 upgrade, Snow Leopard was a $29 upgrade, no word on Lion pricing yet.

Nope. My 3 year old MB Pro (Santa Rosa) is attached to Active Directory, works with my exchange server, runs AS/400, dabbles with AutoCad files, running Fusion, and a bunch of other crap. I use it for work. Air? It's for a differently crowd, while capable nonetheless.

I don't see the point really. i have an iPad. I do like the fact that the 11" has 16:9 ratio.
Now my HP is really giving me trouble, amd I've been thinking of going back to the mac (I had a unibody macbook for a short time between 2008 and 2009) but I'm mostly stuck between getting a macbook pro, or just using my ipad for my mobile stuff and getting a 27" imac for the home. (more powerfull system for less price of a macbook pro)
but that may not be for a while.
