Comment on "MacBook Air as Primary Machine"

@ Jesper:

The Flash disk will be used for virtual memory, so it'll be being hit all the time anyway.

In terms of the superdrive, there's no way I'd buy an MBA without one. How else do you install the next OS onto it (or reformat and reinstall a dodgy disk in it) - can Remote Disc be used when it won't even boot? I somehow doubt Apple put Airport / Bonjour / Remote Disc down at a level underneath the bootloader...

That said, the ability to leave the superdrive at home is good (less weight to be carrying around). If my 17" PB had a 2nd battery and an external superdrive, I'd be happy (and stronger too by now).
