MacBook Air v MacBook
So... for $600 more, I get (a) twice the RAM (2GB v. 1GB), (b) half the thickness (12mm v. 27mm), (c) 60% the weight (3lb v. 5lb), and (d) a multitouch touchpad.

The screen's the same, the baseline HD's the same, the battery life is slightly less (5hr v. 6hr), the sound's the same, the video's the same...

Oh, it's wedge-shaped, not square. (Am I evil for thinking that'll make a better doorstop in a couple of years?)

Am I missing anything?

So for you Mac fans out there.... is it worth it? I'm not sure I'm sold on it.

For some people? Yes, absolutely. The more you travel, or even just wander around the office with the thing under your arm going from meeting to meeting, the more those two pounds matter, honestly.

If my work place were willing to buy me an Apple in any context whatsoever, I'd be all over this thing like white on rice. As it is, having just bought a MacBook Pro last year, this isn't QUITE sexy enough for me to consider selling my MBP in favour of it. But they were very close.
