Best MacBook/Laptop Computer I've Ever OwnedPosted .
Best computer I've ever owned. Transportability can't be beat. Compliments my 3G iPhone. WiFi connectivity beats everything out there. I can be sitting in a classroom connected to WiFi and surfing the internet and Dell, HP, Sony Vaio, Compaq owners and whatever else is out there keep asking me "How'd you get internet in here? I can't even get one bar!" The screen is just awesome; the backlit keyboard is awesome as well. Get the SuperDrive! I wanted to give the overall rating of SIX (6) Stars. Simply the BEST...I would recommend this to a friend

Great laptopPosted .
I purchased this laptop for its portability. At 0.76 inches thick at its thickest point and only 3 lbs this laptop fit the bill nicely. It runs Mac OS Leopard, which is not prone to viruses & spyware like Windows. It is also very speedy, despite what some reviewers online have said. I purchased the 1.6Ghz configuration with the 80GB 4200rpm hard drive. It loads every program pretty quickly, is very fast at multitasking due to the 2GB of RAM. Basically, it runs like a champ. Yes, its theoretically slower than the other MacBooks but it is by no means slow and you will not a difference for everyday tasks like web surfing, e-mail, chatting, listening to music, watching videos, etc. The laptop feels very sturdy, for being so thin, and does not get hot at all. After turning the power settings down to "maximum battery life" the computer ran very cool and silent. You literally have to put your ear up to it to hear anything. Definitely quieter than the white MacBook which I have used in the past. The keyboard is a pleasure to type on. It is very comfortable and it automatically lights up in dim light conditions so you can read the keys. This function can be turned off if you want as well (in case you find it annoying and do not need to look at the keyboard to type). My main gripe with this computer is the battery life. I guess they couldn't stuff a big battery into something this thin, but you definitely should have your charger handy if you will be using it for more than a couple of hours. If you use it in a dark area where you can comfortably view the screen on the lowest brightness setting and turn off the keyboard illumination as well you can squeeze out about 5 hours of web surfing and chatting on it. If you turn up the screen about half way you will be looking at about 2.5 hours to 3 hours. If you use the built-in webcam, you will drain even quicker. In my informal test using the webcam for video chat for about 35 minutes drained the battery almost 50%. The only other downside for some is the lack of ports and lack of a built-in CD drive. There are plenty of posts about this online so google it for more information. In my experience, the things they took away aren't necessary. You have a built in USB port which is great for a flash drive or an external DVD drive if you must have one. You also have a headphone jack and a video-out port (the unit comes with the adapter plugs for it). My theory is that you will not be installing programs or running CDs on an ultra portable computer on the go anyway, so a built-in drive is unnecessary. The Air comes with software to allow you to borrow a CD drive if you need to install software, which I imagine for most people will only be a necessity when they first purchase the computer (to install Microsoft Office most likely, as all other software such as iLife 08 is already pre-installed). Don't let the lack of a drive fool you or sway you away from this unit, unless you see yourself using it on a daily basis. Overall this is a great laptop for surfing the web on the couch, typing a document in your bed, or getting some work done in a library or hotel. The light weight and sturdy construction make it ideal for travel and for using on the go. The beautiful screen that is LED backlit (cutting edge technology) makes everything you do look great. It is VERY bright and vivid, in fact I would venture to say it is higher quality and produces a better picture than my 20" Aluminum iMac! I highly recommend this for anyone who has a need for a quality laptop on the go and in the house that can get a lot of serious work done yet won't break their back.I would recommend this to a friend

AMAZING Laptop!Posted .
About two years ago, my wife forced me to confront what some would call cognitive dissonance and other would could outright hypocrisy. I will deny the hypocrisy charge in that I am more that willing to admit when I'm wrong (even if it sometimes takes vigorous convincing). All this relates back to the early '90's when I built and sold computers for a living. Obviously they were PC's running windows. As such I was NOT a mac fan. To my defense, at the time there was (IMHO) no reason to be a mac fan. At the time, they were expensive, had tiny screens (9" on some" and dollar for dollar had no where near the lasting power of a pc that you could (at the time) fairly easily upgrade if you bought a "clone". But as an enlightened individual I can adapt, learn and indeed change my opinion. Since that time major changes are occurred at Apple, Inc. Most notably Steve Jobs has returned to the helm and with him the innovation and leadership that made Apple a contender in the first place. Furthermore, Microsoft has spiraled further and further into the abyss, VISTA representing merely yet another miserable failure. In 2006, albeit a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer + Internet (Win NT 4.0) I gave up. A server beyond repair, network failing . . I threw in the towel and ordered three brand spanking new MacBookPros for the attorney's in my firm and three shiny new iMacs for the staff. The switch was made. About 6 months later I replaced our Microsoft Small Business Server with a Mac X Serve. With the addition of Leopard iCal Server, we don't miss a beat. Therefore it is with glad heart that I write to you about my MacBookAir. I've owned a LOT of laptops in my time. And understanding that all computers, laptops included are configured for different purposes, considering the design goals of THIS unit it is undoubtedly the most incredible piece of technology I have ever owned. Am I in anyway disappointed? Sure. The graphic chipset isn't *quite* powerful enough to run World of Warcraft and of course that is one of the main reasons to own a computer these days . . . Still, this is an AMAZING computer. The battery life is incredible. It's weight is negligible. Entirely portable I don't ever hesitate to take it with me wherever I go. As an additional perk, Every time I take it out in public, I've yet to fail to attract someone who comes up and says, "Hey is that that new Apple laptop? Wow that thing is thin! Can I touch it?" Hmm . . sure.I would recommend this to a friend

Apple Has Done It Again!Posted .
I was excited to hear they were finally in. Rushed and purchased one. I went with the 80GB internal drive as the 1300+ extra for the every so slightly faster processor and solid state drive did not justify the cost for me. The laptop is light as a feather and traveling A LOT, light means everything. It also takes up far less space in your computer bag than other standard 15" models. The screen is what apple users have come to expect. Beautiful, sharp, and bright with color. The glossy finish gives it "pop" when you use it. The keyboard is very low profile like the new apple external keyboard models and feels great to the touch. The trackpad is very large and offer easy click-ability around the screen. The little "door" that pops down to expose your USB and Headphone jack is quite cool. Most USB devices will fit, however, if you are like me and use a USB Broadband Adapter, you will most likely need a pigtail to give you some breathing room. Battery life is bar none. Sitting in the Newark airport waiting for my next delayed flight, the battery proved incredible. Easily watch a 2Hr DVD with plenty of time to do other things after. The only downside here, is that the battery is non-user replaceable, so when it goes, be ready to give your new baby back for a battery change. Overall, this is MAC's best attempt at a portable. Power, features, and function all in a little package. If you are a Windows user or Mac user looking for your next lightweight beauty, than you can't go wrong with the Air.I would recommend this to a friend

Exactly what Steve Jobs had said.Posted .
As I do with any product before I buy it, I read as many reviews as I could find. The reviews I had read about this product were mixed. Many people said that the lack of optical drive and wired ethernet port was simply awful. In my opinion, this computer was meant for somebody that probably has another computer to use. I have an iMac and a MacBook and this new MacBook Air is a great compliment to them. I used the remote disk to install Office 2008 on my MBA from my MacBook. It worked great. This computer will be great to write papers and use the internet when I'm on my school's campus and it does not add much weight at all to my already too heavy books. This computer will great for anyone that does not feel the need to use/burn cd's and dvd's when on the go. And if you need that, there is always the tiny, slim optical drive as an add-on. I don't have a single complaint about the money spent on this purchase.I would recommend this to a friend

Very Nice LaptopPosted .
For ones the want a Laptop for gaming this not the one nor are most Macs. If you want a second computer for traveling on the Road or on a plane. Well this one is the one for you. I have been using mine now for three weeks and just love it. So it might not be the fastest Mac out there if I need speed and Power I will use my Mac Pro or MacBook Pro. But if I need one to take on the road with me this is the one. I would not hesitate to tell anyone to buy this computer. I love how bright the display is and just plain light it is. Yes I know there is not many ports nor a optical drive in it but that fine as well. When I am on the road the one USB port is just fine since I hardly us it but for backing up to a external drive. Or for that matter the stand alone Super Drive you can get for it. Over all I think Apple has a hit on there hands with the MacBook Air. And before I forget about it I am getting a good 3 to 4 hours on a full charge of the Battery as well. That is much better then my MacBook Pro 17 inch gets. So get this computer and you will be happy with it just remember it not built for speed it built for light weight on the Road or on the couch use. You can edit photos music and all with it. But it not meant to use pro apps like Final cut Pro to edit movies and such. That is what the MacBook Pro Mac Pro or iMac is for.I would recommend this to a friend

Great things lie inside this thin case... A friend drove to the store with me to bring the MBA home - he is now convinced of buying Mac for his next computer. This laptop is amazingly light and is easier to carry than any textbook I own. I am finding I appreciate the more intuitive user interface (and I was quite fond of Vista just a couple of months ago). The adjustment has been easy and find I prefer tasks on the MBA over any other computer option I have available. I did buy the Superdrive CD/DVD to accompany the MBA. The remote install of S/W via another Windows computer was exceptionally easy - my problem was that I would often be working in another area, and the CD I was installing from would occasionally be removed or the computer turned off by another user. It was more for convenience than anything. The one time I called Apple tech support, I had the most amazing experience. I spoke with a very knowledgeable staff member who communicated very clearly and demonstrated an exceptional level of understanding of my situation. We overcame the problem and life has been great since. The power adapter - of all things - truly fascinated this engineer. Aside from going to the grocery store, the MBA goes nearly everywhere with me. One minor complaint is the hard drive size, a mere 80GB which is easy to fill these days with music and pictures. My iPod has more space! One added bonus of this is that it forces you to pare down your collection. In reality, I found most of the files I had stored on the old hard drive were not accessed often enough to take up space on the MBA hard drive, and have since been relocated. Another minor complaint is the single USB port. There have been a couple of times where having another port is helpful (the USB hub I traditionally use is not conveniently located). It just takes a little creative thinking. The enjoyment the MBA has offered me far exceeds the complaints. I have been converted...I would recommend this to a friend
