Also have the iPad charging dock that will come with it.

I did a little trimming on the Apple iPad case so that it would fit in the dock without removing the case.

Howdy Steve: Been trying to decide do I "really" want to sell it. Reckon I do - I'm just not using it since getting my MBA and I've already ordered 2 of the new Kindle Fires.

I did get your PM yesterday. Just don't have much time during the week. I will get some pics up tonight or first thing Sat morning. We can talk about postal rates to Can.

Hey Bobtomay,

I need this one for my little boy, so if you are ready we can deal in pms as long as I get a few photos of it first just make sure theres no major damage to her!

How do you like the MBA? Im going through the Air vs. pro in my head. Not sure what to get, but LOVE the look and lightness of the air, but love the storage of the pro. I was thinking tho, with the advent of usb drives, Im not really going to be missing much using the air.

It was pretty easy choice for me. I still have my '06 MBP and it will still do everything I need to get done on my Mac. Only reason I bought a new machine - it'd been 5 years since my last purchase for one as my primary use computer and I couldn't stand it any longer after years of buying a new one once a year. My media library is way too big to fit on any single drive anyway and use a Win 7 box along with external RAID 1 boxes and half a dozen spare drives for all that stuff. I use the Win7 box for all video stuff - a great many more software option in Windows than we have with OS X. Have that box plus a PS3 for gaming.

With the HD3000 - it's good enough now for the gaming I'll do on my Mac - especially on that size screen - played WoW for a few hours and it handled that pretty well. The MBP was never "really" a consideration. I haven't been using the optical drive on the MBP but once or twice a year since pretty much any software you could want is all available via download.

At the warmest I've been able to get the MBA - after an hour of video or gaming - it can still sit on my bare legs - things you're not going to do on the MBP without a laptop stand.

Aperture runs good with a 20GB library - have installed LR3, but haven't really gotten into that one yet.

10 years ago - even 3-5 years ago - I wouldn't have even considered a CPU/GPU combination that was not at or next to the top end. Today, any of these i5/i7s will do practically anything that most folks need/want it to do.

Would say, I can't recommend anything smaller than the 250 GB for most folks. There are some that don't keep any media on their drives that 120GB would work for - like my wife - her 4 yr old MB is still only using 40GB of space and that's after in place upgrades from 10.4 to 10.5 to 10.6 to 10.7. - and doubtful she's ever deleted anything she's ever put on it.

. . . I've already ordered 2 of the new Kindle Fires. . .

And we will be awaiting your hands on review! :)

I am seriously tempted by the Kindle Fire. May be my Christmas present this year.
