MacBook Air: Still Lust-Worthy With Core 2 Duo?

Am I the only one stressing about the fact that the new MacBook Airs run the older Intel Core 2 Duo architecture instead of the newer Core i5 or i7 chips?  They arebenchmarking and performing very nicely to rave reviews (engadget, techcrunch,gizmodo) due in large part to the flash based storage, and the battery life is great, but will they become obsoleted that much faster?  Admittedly, they are less expensive and designed for portable productivity not desktop performance, but still, the older chip architecture has to give one pause.  (Never mind: after much soul-searching, I still lust for one, but I’ll hold off until they offer the Core i7.)
