Just OK Posted by: from: New Hampshire on I bought this solely to use as a secondary computer. I have an iMac at home, but a lousy internet connection, so I occasionally need to go to the local library to get work done, and this laptop will fit the bill. I bought it because it's Apple's cheapest laptop, and I got a great deal on it on sale. Can I ever imagine using this as my main computer? No. What I like about it is that it's small, lightweight, easy to carry around, and it's a Mac. The tradeoff is a small screen size, but for occasional use it's okay. I don't particular like the trackpad--I have to use a mouse because using the trackpad kills my wrist. The worst part of the Macbook Air is definitely the screen quality. I know it's not a "Retina" screen, but even so, Apple could have put a better regular screen in it. The viewing angles are so embarrassingly bad that there isn't even a single sweet spot. Even when you're staring straight at it, dead center, you can notice the color shifts around the right and left edges of the screen.

$100 difference Posted by: from: on Let me save you a few hours of research. Everytime it has come up on various forums 50% love the 11" 50% love the 13" and quite a few own/owned both and love both. It will not be helpful to search it. They are both small they are both light. 13" is $100 higher in every configuration and has a 16:10 screen as opposed to 16:9 on the 11". The 13 has a SDXC card reader and 2x faster SSD other than that... The 11" has 135ppi (pixels per inch) and the 13" has 128ppi) I have viewed both side by side and if the 11"is better it is slight to the point you will never know. IIRC, the 13" has 12 hour battery as opposed to 9 for the 11". If you would use it on an airplane tray often or value SMALL and light over all else, go with the 11". The 13" is heavier but it's in no way heavy. The difference between the 13" MacBook Air and the new April 10 macbook is 1lb almost exactly and the 11" air is in between but closer to the new macbook in weight. Apple has all the specs on their site, but their comparison chart is lacking even compared to what I listed above. I compiled that from many sources. It's in no way definitive, but it really helped me decide.

My first MacBook knocks it out of the park! Posted by: from: on I recently bought a MacBook Air and was blown away by the operating system and how simple the programs are to execute. The speed of the computer is amazing! I only wish I had not waited so long to buy the MacBook. From the moment I took it out of the box and turned the setup assistant on I was up and running. The battery life is great and recharges in a relative short period. The trackpad is large and the multi-touch gestures are simple to navigate through the pages and documents. The ease in syncing my iPad and iPhone versus my PC is incredibly quicker. The advanced features on the MacBook Air compared to my PC and desktop computer is light years ahead. Finally, I'll suggest a MacBook Air to anyone that is considering a new PC. The difference in price may seem significant but, the enhanced quality is well worth the price. Additionally , the appearance of the MacBook is astonishingly beautiful.

Solid Laptop - Just Make Sure You Know... Posted by: from: on I normally don't write reviews. I'm a marketing practitioner and part-time adjunct marketing professor who talks about Apple all the time in my classes. This is a solid laptop and can be "great," as long as you understand the context of what your needs are. Own an iPhone/iPad and finally got a Mac. Spec-wise, this is a "better than average" laptop, not fantastic. But if you're looking for a computer that doesn't really ever crash, incredibly light weight and easy to use, Mac Air may be your answer. This is not a work horse. If you need a Mac with more capability, then you'll need the Pro. If you need a new laptop for personal use and productivity, possibly have other iOS products, CAN spend a bit more on a laptop with "good" specs, great portability, and want to finally migrate to Mac instead of Windows, this may be great for you, as it has been for me. If you can't understand the value proposition or you just don't see why this laptop comes at a premium price, you might be better off with a comparable Windows PC for almost 40% less. It's silly to ridicule Windows. Get a Mac, if it makes sense for you.

Affordable, efficient and portable Posted by: from: on Having previously used a MacBook Air 13" for the past five years, the MacBook Air 11" is exactly what I expected. It works seamlessly with my iPad and iPhone to keep all of my life in sync. I considered the MacBook and the Pro as well. The Pro is significantly bigger and heavier so it was eliminated pretty quickly from consideration - portability is key. The MacBook's USB-C port is the main reason I didn't choose it. Given that the MacBook Air is priced significantly less than either of them but still provided what I needed, I went with the Air. It helped that BB had a flash sale that reduced the price even further. I know there is a lot of commentary on the internet that the Air has low end graphics/display, not enough storage, old tech, may be discontinued, etc. However, for my needs, it is the perfect solution. I use the Microsoft Office suite, manage my music/email, general internet usage and it all works well. After being used to the 13", I was afraid the 11" might be too small of a screen for 50+ year old eyes but it isn't. It fits in my handbag which makes it easy to take on planes as I travel frequently. Battery life has been more than promised. I am confident that this will serve my needs for the next several years and am completely happy with my choice.

Great, easy to use computer Posted by: from: on While researching computers for college, I was unsure on which to choose. I knew I wanted an Apple product and I made the right decision. This computer is light weight, easy to use & reliable.

Great choice, sorry I waited so long Posted by: from: on I was really torn between the MacBook Air 11.6 and the new Macbook Retina. I am a fanatic about display quality. I have an iPad Air with retina and I use a Dell 28" 4k monitor. I spent time in the Apple Store comparing them. In the end I found that the display of the MacBook Air 11.6 was very good. After using it for a couple weeks I'm not looking back. I'm very happy with my decision. Other pluses include that the MacBook Air 11.6 supports my Dell 4k monitor. It looks just amazing. It's more powerful with better graphics than the new MacBook. There are better port options. It also is so much less expensive. It has good battery life. It still is very light and ultraportable. Yet when I use it I don't feel cramped. This little laptop has quickly become my primary device. The other limitation I was concerned about was the 128 GB disk. To compensate I plugged in a USB 3.0 ultra fit low profile SanDisk 64 GB flash drive. I formatted it as a Mac disk. I pointed my iTunes library to this. This has helped mitigate any storage concerns I had. I have used Mac minis for years. Also I have used iPhones and iPads. Yet I always used windows laptops. I'm sorry I waited so long to get a MacBook. Very happy with this purchase.

lightweight and portable laptop Posted by: from: on Review of MacBook Air 11". This computer was a jump for me from a pc to a MacBook. So there is definitely a learning curve when making this change, especially for us folks who have been using a pc since forever. But, I went with a MacBook because most of my other electronic devices are now apple products and wanted to have more of a streamlined experience. It does help in that respect, but it is much different than a pc and takes a lot of getting used to. I selected this size because it is very portable and I wanted a laptop that I could travel with and/or grab and go in a medium sized messenger bag. The one thing with the size that I didn't think through before purchase is the screen size and everything on the screen is much smaller. Not everything adapts well to the size of the screen. So with the downside, it is still a very nice lightweight fairly easy to use handy computer. Still learning how to use it effectively.
