    Sorry If this is dumb but would this work with a hackintosh with USB 3 as a really really big flash drive?
    Yep.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    That's really nice, now I need to seriously consider a macbook air, these things can effectively double it's storage capacity.

    Hmm, seems to me that anybody buying a MacBook Air would be simply blowing money for bragging rights.
    I suppose we all have our opinions, but I find the base models to be quite reasonably priced. Hell, even the upper models are comparable to a mid-range MBP where you are paying for weight reduction. To each his own, but the weight I get to drop off my back/shoulder carrying these things around is a plus.
    Oh, yes the weight!

    Been carrying around a 5.4lb 2007 15" MBP and I would love to trade up to a 2.3lb MBA!
    Turns our I didn't really need that separate GPU that I thought I was going to use so much.

    This is one thing people don't seem to understand. The funny thing is that when we are talking about OUNCES in cell phones, people freak out. When we are talking about POUNDS in a computer, people shrug it off like it's no big deal. I agree if this thing is going to rarely leave your desk it is not worth the premium to shave off those pounds. That said it really wasn't built as a desktop replacement, although it would seem that it pretty much can be considered one (mid to top end models).

    If I get a mba it will be my main computer. If I need a bigger screen, I'll just plug it up to my tv.

    you guys are crazy, I could never live without a combined processor clock of 6Ghz ... I have no idea how people can stand to use their stuff with a mere 3.6 (1.8X2)...
    The fastest i7 Mobile processor is about 2.8Ghz with a turbo boost up to 3.06Ghz. What are you using?
