    This SSD thing (once a technology only utilized by video cameras mainly) is starting to get excitingly fast, I'd take the lesser of the three and just use that as my boot drive, and store everything else on an old fashioned moving part hard drive
    Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.

    Anyone who is willing to spend almost $2000 just on a hard drive, would buy something a lot better than a MacBook Air
    Lol agreed

    I'll wait for the price of ssd to come down. In the mean time I'll snatch up a 128 MBA off craigslist.

    That's is a premium price! If you can deal with a computer thats a little thicker than using that money for a MacBook pro would be the way to go. But that wouldn't be why you have an air.

    The equivalent in the PC world to the Mac. It sure looks pretty until you have to pay for it.

    i totally disagree with macbook pro being better than macbook air.
    what makes it better? a macbook air can boot in 10 seconds, battery life is far better than mbp, and is extremely easier to carry around. there is no "better", it also depends on your life style and what your using it for

    I plan on replacing my MacBook Pro's Superdrive with an SSD, even just a 40GB or 60GB to have OS X and my most used Apps on it and keep my photo's, movies and music on the standard HDD.

    I agree with psilocybin, as far as I know there isn't any better laptop exist up until this day. I am waiting for upcoming MacBook Pro and hoping it would have flash storage just like MacBook Air. SSD is slower than some hard drive but flash storage is much faster and more reliable.
