1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Little, if any, real world difference. If you are working with large spreadsheets I would recommend you spend the money on getting 8GB RAM (if that is an option).

    Not an option, unfortunately in this little thing.

    Can't carry a second battery must be physically opened with a screwdriver to change this battery down the road. 256GB max storage space won't even cover my textbooks, external dvd, etc etc.

    The newer netbooks with Atom 2 or whatever out perform, out price, out everything. Some of them are just as ruggedly built too and equally or more thin.

    good luck with that, the ram is soldered directly to the board and can't be upgraded ever i wonder if they considered that ram can go bad... probably don't care since the buyers will just get the next macbook air

    256 GB won't cover textbooks and external DVD?

    Wtf textbooks do you need? The manual for the Large Hadron Collider?

    External DVD needs internal storage?


    It would have made sense if you said your mp3s and divx files needed the space...but even that's like over 50 movies on your computer already.

    256 GB for a mobile laptop is all you ever need.
