"Apple is reportedly struggling to meet consumer demand for the 13-inch MacBook Air, leading some resellers to add hefty premiums to the larger of Apple's ultra-thin notebooks."
Apparently it's only the 3rd party resellers that are having supply issues, you can still get them at your friendly Apple retail store. In several stores called by AppleInsider, only one was out of the 13-inch version. So while it seems they did underestimate the demand, it's not like you can't pick one up at retail prices. After using the 11-inch MacBook Air all these months, I don't think I could really go back to the 13-inch screen. I don't think I would like to sacrifice the compactness of my MBA. If I do want to get a bigger screen, I'll just spend the money on one of those fancy monitors that Apple sells and hook my MBA up to it. What are your thoughts? 11-inch or 13-inch? Remember, bigger isn't always better.
