MacBook Air’s: What could make them better still?

The latest MacBook Airs, in an 11-inch and 13-inch version, have received a lot of praise since their release late last year and as an owner/user of the 13-inch model on a daily basis, I really haven’t found too much to fault it. Here at OSM though we’re wondering what you might suggest that would make either model even better?

An article over on Engadget by Darren Murph has asked what people might change on the 11-inch model, although as it states, “there’s an awful lot to love,” including the all-Flash design, and the portability. However, minor criticisms suggested are the non-backlit keyboard (doesn’t trouble me), and it’s also said to be sluggish. Believe me, after the PC I was using before, the 13-inch version definitely doesn’t seem sluggish.

Suggestions for improvements from Engadget readers so far include more RAM, a next-generation processor, and a price-drop. Other suggestions are a multi-touch interface, changes to the design such as the housing being made brushed black aluminum and a better battery life, among the many other ideas put forward.

Personally nothing would prise me away from mine, but what suggestions do you have that could make either sized model even better? Let us know with your comments please.
