i saw the macbook air for the first time in a store a couple of weeks ago. now i get why people keep saying the air is so sexy!! i'd get one if i could afford it.
I just happened to get a little lucky and ended up with a scholarship that came in AFTER my tuition was paid, so they cut me a check. I used part of it to get the Air. I don't know if it's "Worth" $1700, but I don't regret buying it at all.
