    got one a few weeks ago. love it.

  • Cory Levy

    Let us know how you like it! I am debating whether to get the Air or wait for a new Macbook Pro.

  • Freddie Daniells

    Not sure about this – understand the need for small, nut not the MBA. If you are just buying an email client with a few add-ons, why not buy something truly small like the Sony TZ? It weighs next to nothing too, is smaller in your briefcase and it is sexy too! And Vista looks great on it with a totally happy Exchange mail client. hmmm…

    Love mine, although XP is not recognizing the usb ethernet dongle.

    Rich, not sure what to say on the Ethernet dongle, did you install the BootCamp drivers from the OS X CD that came with it? I have seen that the drivers on that disk are more current than what's on the original Leopard disk so you may want to try that.

    Cory: If you're even remotely on the fence get the Air – SO much better than the MBP if you ask me.

    Freddie: The issues with the tiny Sony's (which are cool) are two fold, first I think they are much flimsier than the Air (very plasticy) and the keyboards are too small. The great thing about the Air is the wonderful full size keyboard – it just feels so amazingly solid as you work with it.

    I'm typing this on my MacBook Pro which I hope to get rid of in exchange for an Air!!!
