    The latest MacBook Air has a minute USB reinstall drive which you can use for drive installation and there is no extra check for external DVD drive. You can just plug the USB without problems and then can reinstalled the OS. Flash storage united with power-efficient Intel Core 2 Duo processors and NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics convey reasonable mobility with great battery life and performance of macbook air. So there is no such thing that hard disc is killed. So defiantly you can move to the latest Macbook Air laptop for all the latest features and performance which will be more than macbook pro with the mac os x operating system.
