The MacBook Air 2011 is a pretty awesome laptop. While it is not as powerful as the Vaio Z, the far lower cost helps sell it. My biggest problem with it is probably the fact that it could be used as a secondary frying pan. Seriously, the bottom gets really hot. Just fire up an HD YouTube video, flip the computer over, and start cooking. Other than that, it is a pretty good device, although still a bit too expensive. Many ultrabooks are coming out with similar specs and builds for much less, so the MBA is definitely still a bit overpriced.
