A great workhorse for people on the goPosted .
After lugging around a 15-inch MacBook Pro for work, my shoulders needed a break. I switched to the 11-inch 2012 MacBook Air and while I enjoyed the notebook's portable form factor, I missed having a built-in card reader and needed something with more storage and a little more screen real estate. Once Apple announced its refreshed MacBook Airs, I quickly set my sights on the 13-inch model due to the fact that it retained its predecessor's solid build quality, while drastically improving its performance and battery life. The 2013 Air sports a fourth-generation Intel Haswell processor, which gives the new 13-inch MacBook Air 12 hours of battery life. While it may sound like a marketing gimmick, the updated Air delivers on this claim. In fact, its battery can easily exceed 12 hours of work. Arguably the second big draw for the updated MacBook Air is its improved flash memory, which Apple claims is over 40 percent better than last year's model. Boot times were noticeably quicker and data reads and writes are considerably faster. Aside from the aforementioned highlights, the 2013 13-inch MacBook Air's biggest shortcoming is its display. It's not terrible, but in a market saturated with high-res displays, the Air's screen is easily outclassed by many of its competitors. That being said, if you're not the type to obsess over pixel density and you're looking for a solid machine that will get you through a day at the office or classroom, the 2013 MacBook Air is definitely a worthy contender.I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect laptop for everyonePosted .
I've had a Dell laptop for about 4 years and also had a Dell Desktop. Wanted to switch over to Mac, as many friends who owned PCs had told me that the new Windows 8 operating system was a bit weird and unmanageable. The only thing I worried about was the Wifi issues that many people had complained about. At first, I was hesitant to go for the Air, and wanted to try the pro instead, however the pro with retina was about 400 dollars more expensive at the time, and also was a bit heavier than the air. Since I am starting out in the fall as a college student, I wanted a super light weight portable laptop that I could carry around without having to worry about breaking. Despite the many reviews about the Wifi having issues, I splurged and bought it. I have had no issues with ANY Wifi connections so far, and the internet moves faster than my old PC even though they are connected to the same Wifi. Overall, the laptop is super easy to use, even for beginners, and if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you can do SO much with both devices. I can talk to my friends via iMessage not only on my iPhone now, but also on my Macbook and email notifications are so much easier. Before, I used to have to open Chrome/Internet and then login to my email every time. Now, everything is within a simple click on the dock, and all the apps are within easy reach. Although the Mac is very different from the PC, it didn't take me too long to get used to using OS operating system. Everything is super easy and fast, and setup took only a few minutes. Also, the battery life is indeed amazing. Apple promised 12 hours of battery life on the new Air, and although I have not kept track of my usage hours, I have to say that it is a pretty strong battery life. On my Dell pc, I could barely go 2 hours without having to plug it in. I have used my new Macbook Air for about 5 days now, and only had to charge it once. It was only charged for a little amount of time before the battery was full. Also, when I shut down the Air, and leave it off for a few days, the battery life remains the same. As for the Dell, I would charge it 100% and turn it off, but within a day the battery would drop down to 95% just from turning it on. Overall, it is hard to explain every single detail about the Macbook Air here, but it is definitely worth it. I would recommend this is any college student, or even high school students who want a simple laptop that is super manageable and easy to use. It turns on within 10 seconds, and also shuts off very quickly. The only thing I would say is that the price is a bit high for a laptop, but sometimes there are discounts and sales. Got mine for 50$ off sale, and an additional 100$ off student discount. :)I would recommend this to a friend

All around AMAZING!Posted .
This thing is by all measures amazing. I brought this unit home last night at 6PM, played on it non-stop until 2 AM, and I have used it for 2 hours today, still 26% battery and 3 hours estimated battery left. This is with a full featured i5 that boosts up to 2.6 GHz! No sacrifice in performance, paired with the SSD, this is seriously quick performance. Bootcamped Windows 8 to test out the performance, Microsoft needs to seriously re-evaluate their ultrabook experience. Even with Apples purposefully crippled Windows drivers this unit gives a better Windows 8 experience than the first party Asus and HP ultrabooks I sampled at Best Buy. The irony is, besides the occasional game that needs Windows support, I find my self spending all my time in OSX. It has more efficient battery use, the CPU seems to heat up less often, and the trackpad is PHENOMENAL! I don't want to take my hands off the thing. Swiping between programs and Safari tabs is seriously slick and responsive. Biggest downfall is the 128GB solid state drive. Very limiting depending on what you need this unit to do for you. I personally have all my music and files saved in the cloud on google music and skydrive, there is little need for more than 5 GB onboard for office and a few other programs. For many years I was heavily anti-apple. Always thought the price point was too high, and you weren't really gaining anything for that extra cash. Now at 999, I am singing the praises of this unit. The Air is perfected in this generation. Light, solid, amazingly fast, with battery life that no other laptop can offer in this form factor.I would recommend this to a friend

Great for a first computerPosted .
This is my first laptop ever. I am a college student and over the past few months or so I have been looking for the perfect laptop for school. I have been doing a lot of research on today's laptops (youtube reviews, amazon reviews, etc.) I have been really considering a Windows laptop, specifically an HP or Asus, simply because they're cheaper and most of them now are touch screen and I thought it would be cool to have a touchscreen laptop. After visiting a nearby Best Buy and playing around with a few Windows laptops I realized that the Windows 8 platform was a little "hard to grasp" and could take some getting used to. I asked my manager, who is a huge techno geek, on his opinion and he strongly recommended a MacBook. I was a little hesitant because my manager is an Apple fanboy and is extremely biased. Also because I didn't like the iPhone 4-5 (I have a Galaxy S3) and I thought that MacBooks are all hype as well. After doing more research on MacBooks, watching some reviews, I went on ahead and ordered the 2013 MacBook Air. I upgraded it to a 8GB memory, 1.7 GHz Intel Core i7 I am completely unbiased when it comes to technology nor am I an Apple fanboy. I think very highly of myself and I believe that I deserve the best, so I only buy what's best. Apple doesn't make the best phones (iPhones are overrated btw), but I can honestly say that they make the greatest laptops. The laptop is extremely light in weight compared to other laptops. The backlit keyboard is reliable. The design is sleek and stylish. The graphics are awesome. For first time laptop owners, this laptop is very simple to set up and very easy to use. The battery life is decent as well. It charges extremely fast, almost faster than my phone. With Windows 8 I would prefer the laptop to have a touch screen, but I really don't mind not having a touch screen on my Macbook. If you want a good laptop I suggest a HP, Sony, Toshiba, but If you think highly of yourself and you want the best laptop, Macintosh is the way to go! Sure they are expensive but I promise you that you will get what you pay for.I would recommend this to a friend

Flawless laptop for a college studentPosted .
I was always an anti-Mac a few years ago. I always sided with Windows because of the price many companies offered for laptops. There were times where the prices of laptop were less than a premium Macbook and it even offered more internally than the Macbook. When it comes to computers/laptops, I always look at the specs first and then the quality next. Windows laptops always had the better specs than Macbooks back in a few years ago. Price also was a factor too as Macbooks are still in my opinion a little too much. I know it is business and Apple is still trying to get as much until the people drift away from Macbooks (people are not going to drift away. the Macbooks are just too good). Nevertheless it might seem the 4GB on this laptop is too small for your tastes, trust me, 4GB is more than enough. The work I've been doing on this laptop is just surfing the web with always 9+ tabs, taking notes with "Evernote", viewing powerpoints, writing paper, etc. I haven't played any games such as LoL or CS:GO, but from videos I've seen this Macbook Air can work like a powerhorse if need be. The keyboard is simply amazing, I never though I would actually not miss my numeric keyboard. It is simply an awesome experience to use the keyboard. The trackpad is my favorite part of the Macbook Air. With a large trackpad and the gestures Apple integrated into the Macbook Air, you can do tasks so quickly and efficiently. Switch desktops? Four finger swipe left or right. View your mission control? Four finger swipe up. I am able to do my online Chemistry homework without any problems at all. The speakers on this Air is remarkable. I don't know how Apple does it but they do it well. Sound quality is above average and the volume can go pretty high. Screen size is just perfect for me. I was using a 15.6" HP Envy and although I do see a difference in screen size, the 1440x900 makes up for it. Watching American TV shows or Korean variety shows is awesome. Battery performance is just amazing. I am absolutely thankful to purchase the Macbook Air with the Haswell processor. 12 hours. Yes, 12 hours on a single charge. That's if you have your brightness at like 5-6 ticks. Surfing the web is 12 hours. I once saw the battery remaining at 19 hours while I was viewing a pdf. Simply amazing. One thing that I recommend is to quit applications you don't need so you can maximize your battery life. Portability is simply amazing. 2.96 lbs. Wow. I'm a college freshmen now and I can tell you that carrying a 4.5+ lbs laptop is heavy already. Add some books and you will experience the worst time of your life. At the college I'm currently attending, the heat and humidity makes your life carrying that laptop inside your backpack just awful. Sweat is on your straps and the back of backpack is just not good. There have been creaks here and there when I pick up the Air and such. However, I would go ahead and buy a pentalobe screwdriver for Macbook Air and tighten it yourself. The Apple Genius Associate can only do so much to help you. They might help you tighten it a bit more and they might not because it would be useless since it's an exterior manufacturing defect or some sort. There are times where I would surf on the web and the page would lag for a bit and then fully load. Although it is kind of an annoyance, it is still manageable. This laptop is amazing. Just amazing. For all of you college students or about to be college students I would definitely recommend this laptop. Even if you've used Windows all of your life (I have), take that leap of faith and go to the "dark side." "Once you go Mac you will never go back." I purchased this laptop at an incredible price, around $200 lower than the retail price. If you can manage to grab a piece of machinery at this price then definitely go for it. Thanks!I would recommend this to a friend

Best apple laptop available for studentsPosted .
I own a macbook pro and an iMac (27') but decided to update my macbook pro with the new Macbook air. I was skeptical at first but decided to give this option a shot. I can tell you that this was not only the cheapest option currently available, but also it the most outstanding laptop I could have gotten. The first thin you will notice is the weight which is almost non existent (compared to the macbook pro). There after you will notice the incredible speed, once it is turned on it will change the way you ever see other computer speeds. Booting time happens in a blink of the eye, sleep to on happens before you even get to turn on he computer, and your opinion of loading times will have to be re-evaluated. Now for the battery life, the display stated 14 hours left of battery when I checked it. Even if this was incorrect and the 12 hours advertised will still blow my mind. This means I can go to school, do my work, and still have enough juice to do what I like at the end of the day. For the complaints I have been reading regarding wireless problems, I do not know if this issue has been patched since, or if I just do not have the same problems? But I have yet to experience any such problems. Not saying its not true, but I have not yet had the agony of this wireless issue. If you are looking for a solid piece of equipment that will last for years to come, this should be on your list as top contender! I will actually order a second one fully loaded for business use.I would recommend this to a friend

Sleek, beautiful, simplicityPosted .
A long time PC guy, I was a bit apprehensive moving to Mac but the learning curve is surprisingly level. I love this computer! It is simple to use and if you are a MS application user, don't worry because programs like office are available for Mac. The best thing so far is I don't have to run all that software to protect the computer, antivirus, malware, etc because apparently you don't need it on a Mac. There is a lot of help on the internet as well for new users of Mac so don't worry...make the switch!I would recommend this to a friend
