Having run a standard (white) macbook for the past year and a bit, I'm looking at getting one of the new unibody aluminium ones, so its choices time. (plus I'm getting it on the higher education deal, so saving a little money)
Tempted to go for the higher spec one, with the backlit keyboard but wondering it its worth the extra money over the standard one? Alternatively, for pretty much the same as that one I could get an air with an external drive (its going to be my only computer, but its not like I need to burn discs on the move or anything!)
would an air really leave me missing out on anything?
