I've had the Air for a little over two years now and I love it. While it is no longer THE lightest laptop, it is still very light. I took it with me when I was teaching in Korea and on my other travels. I am still impressed with the battery life because I find after about the two year mark, laptops really can't hold any charge, but my little Air is still lasting about 8 hour days. Granted I don't do heavy gaming or really any heavy work on my laptop, it's mostly for entertainment, videos, and Internet browsing.A strange side note is the keyboard letters are still intact. What I mean by this is I have a really bad tendency to type hard on my keyboard and I type very fast so the paint on the keys are worn out after having a laptop for only a year. However, the Air still has all it's letters!I would definitely re-purchase the Air or recommend it to a friend that doesn't do a lot of heavy gaming, photoshop, editing, etc.
