agreed cryman....like i said before..you can get a laptop for the same price as the air that does way more..and if you can't handle the little bit of extra weight that it will have over the air, than you are pretty sissy in book :-)..all in good fun lol..but really..if the battery life was similar (idk if it is or isn't) between you know a sony vaio or hp or asus regular notebook, i'd take it any day over the air.....doesn't help that i still mac's o/s's as being kindergarten....abc, 123....there's no mean on it's bones..i want to be able to run any software i want, when i want it..you only get that kind of thing with a PC in my opinion

But we aren't comparing those other computers, now are we?

I'm saying out of those two I would choose the air, does a ton more than the ASUS.

Yeah its more expensive, if I had unlimited money and I had to choose.

Neither. I want a fairly priced notebook that does more than surf the net, and is comfortable enough to use. I can handle a notebook being thicker.

Runs flawlessly too.

Do I have to pay for it?

I was actually thinking of getting an Eee PC...the price is right. The Airs are cool, but there are better products out there.
