The Air is just thinner and more expensive.

Nope, just thinner. Air starts at $999. Macbook Pro starts at $1199.

Compared to what you get, it is more expensive (or more limiting depending on how you look at it).

The $999 macbook air is basically a netbook with an 11" screen, a 1.6ghz CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 64GB flash card instead of a HD.

The $1199 macbook pro has a dual core 2.4ghz, 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, 13" screen and a DVDR drive.

Even if you buy the top end $1599 air, you'd have to use an external DVD drive and hard drive and the processor is much slower.

SSD's are better and faster than normal hard drives. I haven't put a disk into my macbook pro in 3 years. So no, you don't NEED to buy a DVD drive or another hard drive. But yes, the process power of an air pales in comparison with the macbook pro.

ThatTeenPhotographer - If you want something light and do basic tasks, get an air. If you want a computer you can do anything with, get a macbook pro.

Are they SSD? I wonder why Apple calls them "flash drives" while they use the term SSD in all their other products.

I looked at the Macbook Air, just couldn't justify it. The solid state hard drive is pretty cool, amazingly light weight...but I don't think it's versatile enough for what I intend to use a laptop for.

So far we're up to a 21.5" iMac, 13" MacBook Pro, iPad2, iPhone4 and iPhone 3GS...plus the iPods we never use anymore...and a Toshiba Windows7 laptop that I hate.
