I believe iFargle will determine today if he wants a Mac or not. If he doesn't, I'd recommend him to hold off until Asus releases the Zenbook Primes.

If screen quality is a concern I would pass on the Air in favor of the Zenbook Prime, it's screen is both higher quality and higher resolution than the Air.

+1. I was just on Apples site and thinking of this thread while I watched that MBR video. I love Apples naming scheme. Jobs' dies, and suddenly everyone forgets how to name things..

I was hoping to see.. "The New Macbook" on their site..
