As long as you are not using the Air for "heavy application" like photoshop or unigraphics, it should be fine. I have look through your "list" and in fact, with 4GB of RAM and 2.13Hz of processor, the Air can handle these as "a piece of cake".

I think you're a perfect use case for the Air. I run more in the background than you and primarily use the machine to develop in Xcode and Parallels running Visual Studio (not simultaneously with XCode), writing documents and presentations, and will occasionally pop into Photoshop for some quick edits.Mac Pro (Early 2010) and iMac (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.4)
I think you will be VERY pleased with the MBA. I had the same MBP as you, and I find the MBA seems faster due to the SSD. It has been a good "upgrade" from my MBP in every way. I haven't found a single compromise, and agree with the TV ads that these really are the "next generation of MacBooks".MBA 2.13/4gb/256gb, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
