New Macbook Airs

The new Macbook Airs are released, along with Mac OS X Lion. If you don't already have one, my recommendation stands--it was and is a brilliant machine. But for upgrades--and I was ready to pull the trigger on a new one--FAIL. The machine needs 8GB of RAM. I burned goats, stared at the night sky, fed the hungry, but the new Air still tops out at 4GB.

Sorry, it's not enough. My road warrior machine needs to run a bunch of OS's under virtualization, sometimes at the same time. The lack of an 8GB option is a fail. Maybe next time. And since I have to wait, I also need a 512GB SSD. Thanks.
