2. I need to know the implications a 11 inch screen has on my work

1. The screen:
The ordinary, very powerful screen. Blank, but if this bothers you, why not try a screen protector from the iPad protective product area? I belong to the people that prefer the crispy claer screen. Very clear, possible to use for serious office work in all light conditions tried so far. Love it!

2. Connectors/interfaces:
A BIG step forward are the TWO USB ports. I now easily copy huge amounts of data between my Photo and Music Hard Drives. Didn’t expect to use my Air for this but backup needs really indicates this will happen pretty often… The Air also goes well with my photo gear (Canon).
