With my recent flirting with various Apple machinery, such as my MacBook and my iMac, it was inevitable that the woman in my life would raise her voice like a matron and complain about something.

That day came 2 weeks ago, when she looked me square in the eye, because her other eye wasn’t as good as it used to be, then said, “How come you have two Apple Macs and I don’t have one?”

Price, Lack of DVD CD drive, battery life, hard drive size options
"...I am very surprised that Apple hasn't made a 500 GB SSD available as BTO upgrade for the Air as it has for the 13" MacBook Pro. I guess this is due to cost.
The other problem is that battery life seems less than the late 2010 model, I got 7 rather than 8 or 9 hours. This is a disappointment, but isn't a deal-breaker. You expect a certain loss in battery life when you get a much more capable chip.
In short, this is a truly great personal computer. ..."

Product Information for "Apple MacBook Air - 13.3" - Core i5 - MacOS X 10.7 Lion - 4 GB RAM - 128 GB flash storage" »
Manufacturer's product description
The MacBook Air is proof. It's designed around all-flash storage for better responsiveness and reliability. It features a trackpad with full multi-touch support. And though it's incredibly thin and light, its large battery gives you portable power.Chief among it was the precision unibody enclosure. That same engineering process comes to the MacBook Air display. Just like the main enclosure, the display housing is crafted from a single piece of aluminium, with all the structural elements machined directly into it. Total unibody construction means a less complex design with fewer parts. That makes MacBook Air exceptionally thin and light, yet still durable enough to handle the rigors of everyday use.
