Along with releasing updates versions of the ultra-thin MacBook Air and ultra-compact Mac Mini, Apple quietly pulled the classic, white MacBook from its online store. And according to several reports, the venerable MacBook won't be returning. The Air appears to be Apple's new entry-level laptop.
After cracking open and using both 11-inch and 13-inch Airs, I think they're a great replacement for the classic MacBook. Unfortunately, most buyers will likely end up paying more for the Air than a similarly-equipped white MacBook.
The 11-inch MacBook AIr starts at $999, the same price as the white MacBook. But this entry-level Air has only 64GB of flash storage. According the CNET's review, only 48GB of that space is available for use, once you account for the operating system and preinstalled apps.
I suspect most buyers will opt for either the 13-inch Air (starts at $1,299 with a 128GB SSD) or an 11-inch Air with a 128GB SSD ($1,199.00).

Understand there is boot camp but just would like to explore more options. Now thinking of complete wipe of the hard disk and save all space for windows due to work need (will skipping Boot Camp process make it faster when booting?). but also like to reserve the option of recovering to OS X when got more time to learn to use OS X.
