    See I at once thought of getting a MAC book air, it’s just to damn thin for me, the one thing that I love about the air is the flash hdd compared to the sata hdd that comes in the MB pro, just for the fact that it reads faster and declines on the crashing of it due to no mechanical parts are really making it up.

    I was even trying to urge my sister to get the air when she said she wanted to go Mac after seeing my MB pro.

    • My only drawback on the Air used to be the fact that it only had 1 port but now it has 2 so I definitely want one. I hate having to carry around my MBP when I am going out of town so it usually causes me to leave it since I am a light packer. Then again now that I have a tablet I really don’t need to carry it. I may just cop one for my son and “borrow” it lol

    • Plus the MBP has gotten thinner over the last couple models, they are making it very close to the Air. I’m still all pro that flash storage.
