Yea don't expect to run 500 browser tabs and 10 programs at once lol. But for what I mentioned earlier, it'll do just fine.

I really want one but I plan on waiting for ivy bridge to drop next month (suggest you do the same if you can wait). Should be slightly faster and have markedly improved gpu performance for the same price. I guess there is also the possibility that they finally put some decent ssd's this next time as well. And there may also be a small chance they increase the screen resolution across the whole mac lineup. Keep in mind they are made for travel and browsing the web, not alot of power to be had especially when it comes to the gpu's.

I'm in VA visiting family, so i met Firestorm1 locally and picked up the one he was selling. No issues out of it so far. Netflix and youtube vids play really well and does what I need it to do. It was a worthy buy.
