I am totally geeked about a possible 11.6" Macbook Air. I love my Pro and would take it anytime I needed heavy computing, but for short family trips, conferences and long plane rides, it would be totally awesome. I find the iPad too limited. I am a writer and need a full laptop to write on even short trips. I hope the rumors are close to true. Perfect MBA would be 11ish inches, 4gb ram, 256 or 512 gb SSD, 9-10hr battery. I'd be in line for it.

A note to Endgadget if you have a possible Apple prototype, You might want to blur out the serial number.

I'd be very interested in seeing how the 11" version plays out, assuming it runs full OS X and isn't a limited OS-lite gadget. The 2 USB ports give me hope that it is an OS X computer, as Apple doesn't seem to like usable USB on it's OS-lite gadgets. 11" would be great for work and less irritating than schlepping a 15" MBP along with a Lenovo in my backpack. Still, no OS X, no sale here.

Me too, but since I don't really need a new machine now I must resist!

Well, maybe the price of refurbs will drop on Apple's store. I'd be happy with that. Though for $1k, I might overlook the 2GB RAM since that's what the old one had anyhow.

From what I read XJ, you can order it with up to 4GB RAM. I am sure the price is not $999 though!

Also a note, you can add the ram as an option at purchase but not later as it's soldered to the Logicboard.

EDIT: OUCH! $100 more for 4GB!

They've figured out that people like us are advising people to upgrade their own RAM!

I've never been a fan of the MBA - didn't think it was worth getting those specs for that price (don't care about the size). I see why some people may appreciate it but this event has not been able to change my opinion on them. To be fair though, I wasn't really looking for them to convert me.
