Nice! How's the performance? I saw one last night and was impressed on how small it is. I didn't have time to spec test it though. Doesn't it have a slower processor than MacBooks (which are cheaper)?

How does it handle the web? Is it noticeably slow? I don't do a lot of powerful things, but I do run photoshop every once in a while, and that's not a lightweight.

My husband needed a new laptop, so he took my MBP and bought me an MBA. I was against it at first, but now I really love my MBA.

I have see the MBA at an Apple store. It is very nice looking and has it's place for some people. I don't think running photoshop is one of them. I really think it would bog down after running pshop for any length of time.

Toronto, Canada eh!
A friend of mine placed a order for his a little while ago. I should catch up with him to see what he thinks of it. I'm currently planning to buy a MBP this summer (upgrade from a MB that I'll give to my GF).
