Who is using a Macbook Air 13"

I am thinking about a new laptop and will likely wait until I see what Apple releases in April to replace the Macbook Pros, but I'm wondering, is anyone out there using one of the new Macbook Air models for their travel PC. In particular, how does it run using Lightbook, Aperture, iMovie, etc. I have a fast desktop at home, so I don't do the full edit job on my laptop, but I do review and sometimes create quick slide shows and movies when on a dive trip.
I just love the thin profile and less than 3lb. weight of the new AIR, so I'm thinking the Macbook Air 13" with 2.13ghz 4gb/256gb should be a pretty sufficient travel laptop, but would love to hear from anyone currently using that setup.

I do miss having Firewire and a large 1920x1200 screen, but that's the obvious tradeoff to shave half the weight off.

The 11" MacAir is great too as my daughter has one, but I wouldn't want to run Lightroom on it due to smaller screen space.
