    This is a wonderful little lap top. I just don't know how to usexall the features yet because I have akways had androids in the past. I use it mostly to edit photos from my DSLR and find the colors are not true to the real picture.

    1st Choice for People on the Go

    |
    Posted .

    This is an ideal laptop for the person on the go. It is perfect for traveling, school, taking to the library, and Saturday mornings at the local coffee shop. It is streamlined, light, highly mobile, and runs quietly. The battery life is great (9-10 hours) and your usual tasks like web browsing, applications, movies, music, run quickly and smoothly. What I particularly like about this mac is that the keyboard is very responsive and easy to use and I find myself typing faster than I do on my larger desktop keyboard. The trackpad is nicely sized and accommodates lots of gestures. As with all macs, it is good to go as soon as you take it out of the box. You don’t need to uninstall unneeded programs or download necessary updates. Also you do not need to install anti-virus programs. I was hesitant about this when I got my first mac several years ago, but it has proved true. So bottom line, if you want an on-the-go laptop, this should be your first choice.

    Compact and Completely Useful

    Posted .

    My daughter spilled water on the keyboard of her Macbook Pro. That's right, it died. She is enrolled in college. "What am I going to do, Dad?" Dad to the rescue. I have used Apple products since 1992. Yes, I have used PC's, but prefer the ecosystem of Apple. I bought an Apple Macbook Air, 11" screen last year and have been totally in love with it. I write and am most comfortable with the keyboard in my lap. This whole machine fits in my lap. The screen is about ten inches from my eyes. The keyboard feels like a ful sized keyboard. I didn't look at the specs. Maybe it is full sized. It fits snugly in my lap and I can type for hours without it becoming uncomfortable. It is light and can be picked up with a couple of fingers. The screen is the perfect size. No extra real estate but movies and videos are crystal clear. I prefer the small size. Everything you want in an Apple computer is here. Except the optical drive which can be purchased for around $70. I can pick this machine up with two fingers and a thumb. It doesn't bend. No moving parts with the SSD. Wait, it has a fan. That moves. My daughter is totally happy with the computer, loves the smaller size, and hasn't missed a due date at college. I recommend this machine highly.

    My first "leap of faith" MacBook

    |
    Posted .

    Moving from using purely Windows-based laptops to owning a MacBook was never an easy decision considering the interface familiarity and a more premium pricing of the latter. My first MacBook Air has given me the assurance of my "leap of faith" choice. It was classy with user friendly interface, and I look forward to discovering many more great feature from it.

    Exactly what I needed

    |
    Posted .

    Everyone tried to convince me to get the macbook air 13inch or the macbook pro, and after months extensive research and thinking about what I really need. I decided on the macbook air 11inch. Could not be happier! Yes it is 5-8 seconds slower than the pro. Yes it's the same size as my ipad2, but I don't care. I love it and it's exactly what I need. Perfect for online browsing, light work that I bring home, updating my websites. And light enough to tote around. Trust me, the 13inch might be slim, but that weight adds up!

    I was using an iPad for presentations, classroom lectures, travel conferences but found that i missed having the functions of a laptop with me… the lack of a usb port on iPads is sometimes a problems … but i wanted something light and versatile… the Notebook air is it… now i get the versatility of a laptop with the light convenience of an iPad… love it...

    My wife's old MacBook Pro crashed and we were in need of a replacement for her work. She was a little hesitant that the smaller size would bother her but decided to try it out. After a few days, she said it wasnt a problem and that it was a lot faster then her old computer. She's been able to travel with it and its also alot lighter, which has helped because she walks to work. There really hasnt been any downsides.

    It's a decent laptop

    Posted .

    Alright, so, I'm going to be real in this review and not just "ZOMG APPLE" This laptop is okay, I got it with a student discount ($100 off!) so it was actually around $900 (~$1000 with taxes). Well... in my opinion, that's still overpriced. Pros: - It's very light and compact, very portable (one of the main reasons I bought it) - It has great battery life, seriously, I lose maybe 10% per hour (another reason I bought it) - It's decently easy to use - It's adequate for basic day-to-day needs - It has a solid and sturdy build - Made from aluminum so it feels nice - Aesthetically pleasing - Unix based OS (nearly required for CS Majors, your options are a Unix emulator on Windows, Linux, or OSx) - Mag-Safe adapter is nice... but can be aggravating too... - OS has good integration with web accounts, I can hook up my Google account and get my G-mail and messages straight to my laptop and not through a browser - Notifications menu is nice and useful, iTunes integration is good Cons - It has a slow processor, 1.4GHz base dual-core i5, pretty weak, from time to time it can cause hangs even opening a simple application like OneNote. - The screen is low-res, it's 1368x768, or... around 720p. Now, since it has a 11 inch screen, it's not too bad, but the low resolution can leave your display feeling cramped. - It's a bit TOO small... I find myself sitting in awkward positions to use it comfortably if it's not on a desk or while I'm laying down. - It's pretty bad for Multi-tasking, but this is an OSX problem, not a laptop problem. Windows and Linux are GREAT for multi-tasking, featuring easy snap-to edge functionality and Linux even has easy shortcut-key based workspaces that make multi-tasking a dream. OSx, has neither of those 2 things. Essentially to multi-task on this laptop, you need to make both windows full screen and swipe between the two nonstop... not good at all... you can make a workspace too, but it is nowhere near the level of intuitiveness and usefulness of Linux's workspaces (and it's not shortcut-key based) - 4GB of Ram... not much at all - Even with it's "PCI-E based Solid state drive" it still starts up slower than my desktop, which has a bottom of the bin $80 SATA-2 based SSD. But that's also because Windows 8 is now more optimized than OSX. - The operating system is too clicky...I can operate on Linux and Windows almost entirely without even having to use a mouse... the same can't really be said about OSx... I've tried to look up alternatives, but it essentially boils down to, click on everything, or set up custom shortcuts and scripts to make it so you don't have to. - Screens coloration is a bit too bright, I find that the some colors can sometimes appear a bit too bright, essentially giving it a washed-out look. - It's Mac, so there are some compatibility issues - No microphone port... so if I wanted to use a headset with these, I'd have to buy a USB headset because apparently Apple doesn't believe in microphone jacks... - Some of the software it comes bundled with could be better ( I mean seriously, text-editor can't even create a simple .txt document!) Summary: Essentially, it's a decent laptop, it fit my needs (ultraportable, high battery life, can run a Unix OS very well, and well-built) which is why I bought it, but for $1000 there are plenty of other laptops that will spank this laptop in every category (except battery life and portability) A prime reason I suspect many people would buy this laptop would also be aesthetics, it looks good, it's built well, and they keyboard feels good, but as I've stated earlier, it comes at a price being performance and display quality. The one thing I'd say this laptop has over others in its price range (aside from aesthetics/portability/battery life) is that it has a 256GB SSD, which is large enough for your typical user, and because it's a solid state, it will make anything having to do with file operations run extremely fast.

    Absolute Standard for Compact Laptops

    Posted .

    It lives up the hype for sure; I'm not a fan of Mac computers - but finally took the dive running Bootcamp Windows 7 system for some necessary computing, and using Yosemite for the typical surfing / music ,etc. The battery life is insane (music ~20 hours) and is great for all tasks. The processor is great as well. Now knowing that Windows performs very well and stable under this laptop - I don't think I'll ever buy anything else. Not a fan of touch screen computers, and this is actually cheaper than a lot of small travel computers. Only complaint is that it only has 2 USB ports.

    As good as I knew it would be

    Posted .

    I bought the MacBook Air to replace our iPad that our 15 month old has commandeered. It supplements our MacBook Pro. We bought it for ease of surfing the internet for email and for shopping on line. I was surprised how much my wife enjoys it. Even our parents use it when they are babysitting (and the toddler is actually asleep). Is powerful enough to run programs/apps besides the internet as well. Was glad to see it included the Numbers/Pages//Keynote bundle: I can work on them on the laptop and they show up on my iPhone.

    Terrific for mobile laptop users

    Posted .

    This laptop was purchased for doing professional wireless site surveys and remediation of wireless problems. It will run Wireshark in monitor mode to track one channel or scan channels, and with Bootcamp and Windows I am able to use AirMagnet and Ekahau site survey tools on it. Carrying a 1kg MacBook Air on a 2-5 mile walk around a site is much preferable to a 2-3kg standard laptop. MacOS is basically BSD UNIX with a GUI wrapper, so I can use UNIX features in my work.

    Great light computer

    |
    Posted .

    I converted to Apple computer products in 2010, when I purchased a MacBook Pro. I have fallen in love with the ease of the operating systems and the ability to sync my devices via the cloud. I purchased a MacBook Air as I began traveling more and needing a lighter weight notebook. I am very satisfied, the only drawback is that it does not have an internal CDROM drive. I also knew that when doing my research, however at times it is still bothersome.

    Best laptop made period

    The MacBook is clearly the best laptop made. Even install windows on it if you must. Simply lasts twice as long as PC laptops...oh and holds resale value in a way not even a high end PC can. They are best all around

    Great laptop! Very light and easy to take wherever I go. Had a PC before and it takes a little getting used to with MAC shortcuts. Prices at best buy was very good along with the offers and specials they had on the computer. Recommended a friend and my sisters who all bought the same laptop.

    Great laptop. I'm an author and this Mac has me excited about working on my next book again. Love the feel and keyboard... All of it. Looks like a work of art, & I can slip it into my purse. Love the different ways my chapters and pages can be displayed. Wish i could install adobe flash!

    iPad Upgrade

    Posted .

    I traded in my iPad and replaced it with the MacBook Air. The MacBook is so much more versatile! There are numerous apps for the Air. I added Office 365 and that took the versatility to another level. It's lightweight and has a full keyboard. Much better than the iPad in my opinion!

    It's an Apple

    This is another great Apple product. It is easy to use very user friendly. This is so light and thin it is great to keep with me. The screen (fonts) that has taken me a bit to get use to but would have been the same with any smaller tablet or laptop of this size.

    This is easy to use and intuitive. This replaces one of the first MAC book air. I like that its a bit smaller with more capacity. Purchased two more for college children. One is an Engineer and the other Musical. Two more will be purchased within the year for high school and another college student. Can't go wrong with Apple!

    Perfect iPad Replacement

    |
    Posted .

    I realize most people go the other direction... Replacing their laptop with an iPad. I loved the small size of the iPad, but needed a little bit more functionality. This did the trick. Fits in the same small camera bag I kept my iPad in, lasts a long time running on battery, and gives me the extra functionality I need. And it's LIGHT. Heavier than the iPad, but still--I barely notice it. Getting it for the sale price was a bonus--I'd happily have paid full price for the Air. Wish I had made the switch earlier.

    MacBook Air bundle

    Posted .

    Everything I needed was in stock, the MacBook Air, the backup tower and the mouse. Service personnel were friendly but not pushy. It was evident that I had already selected the Apple products, so no comparison shopping was needed. All was accomplished in record time with minimum fuss. I am, of course, very happy with my new computer setup.
