I just got my MBA and I really love it! The one true drawback is the tiny HD. I saw some rumblings of possibly upgrading the HD in the future.

Does anyone have any idea as to when this would happen?

I proposed a similar question a little while ago. Someone posted that there should be some alternatives available early next year.

You could always get an external 2.5" HD and USB enclosure.

Thanks for the suggestions. I did buy a 400GB external which holds everything, but I only have about 10GB open on my laptop. I had to put some videos onto external to have enough extra room.

I guess I want everything in one spot. LOL I may gift it to my sister and splurge and get a 500GB Time Capsule and be truly wireless at home. My old router is slow and troublesome.

Take care guys.
