    Great Performance but No Upgrade Path

    Posted .

    The refresh to the Macbook Air line was a great one. They increased the screen resolutions for both the 11.6'' and the 13'' and also numerous other changes. The inclusion (by default) of a SSD Hard Drive is a welcomed change but it is on board so you cannot currently upgrade later on (at least in this revision). The RAM is the same way so be sure you get what you really want and don't settle in hopes of upgrading later. The only thing I wish they would have included was the FireWire or USB 3.0. All in all, it is a great machine.

    Almost Too Good To Be True

    Posted .

    Off the bat I've always been a PC person. That said this computer is over the top. Got it because I needed a small computer to take on trips. Man does this little machine do the trick. It looks almost 'toy' like but it's anything but that. It's small, built like the brick etc etc, has a full size keyboard, great video and it's FAST! It is hard to believe that a last generation processor is this good. I have a Dell Studio XPS 8100 and I swear the Air is as fast or faster. When typing it has a solid feel much like a desktop machine. For all you other PC users - take comfort. Switching to the Mac takes very little time or effort. And, so far, its been worth every minute learning the new system commands. The only thing about Mac I don't care for is iTunes. What a piece of junk software. There are other programs you can use to put material on your iPod/iPhone/iPad. Just look on the web - you'll find them and they beat iTunes by a country mile. Other than that one exception this is a great little computer and well worth a look. It is NOT a 'netbook' but a complete computer is a very small well built package. i'd recommend the Air to anyone looking for a truly portable computer.

    WOW first time with a Mac

    Posted .

    Well this was a big buy for me I'm super happy with it Im a strong believer in you pay for what you get and this doesn't let you down. I know looking at the tech specs it doesn't look like much when compared to the other macs but its amazingly fast due to the solid hard drive, watch youtube videos about it and trust me when I say I couldn't be happier with the macbook air 11in. Switching from pc to mac has been very easy you can set the touch pad to be just like a pc mouse, and really everything else is about the same very simple. I have enjoyed being able to take it anywhere with my daughter and it has become my main laptop I use everyday battery last a long time as I go place to place.. I have found some really cool accessories. Tom Bihn has a really cool bag that is made for the this mac and the bookarc as well as really nice keyboard covers. Its the best!

    Wonderful!

    Previous laptop - 17" fully loaded gaming level. Desktop - 8 core i7 with everything you can think of. This...11"s of LOVE. It is so thin and user friendly..there is nowhere you can not take this. I have been using it for over a month and when I use someone elses laptop I feel like it's awkwardly huge! This thing is awesome... Its not a powerhouse...so primary computer for a beginner may be okay, but for intermediate and more, this is definately a second or third computer. I used this computer for travel and i forget I have it most of the time. It's awesome for EVERYTHING but editing and downloading a bunch of stuff or working on big files... OVERALL...THIS THING IS AWESOME. ITS A ADVANCED IPAD.

    Awesome!!

    Love it, this thing goes with me everywhere, easy to use, operation system is more user friendly, and it weighs 2 pounds..... maybe 3... Anywho, I got it to make it my storage system for my Apple products(I have my music, my video, and Ipad), and it runs all three with no issues.

    Finally a Really Light Laptop

    Posted .

    Great laptop if you don't want to carry around a lot of weight. It is so light that I keep it in my purse and have a full laptop available at all times (with Verizon Five Spot internet connection), much better than the Ipad, which this MacBook Air has replaced. It is fast, wakes up very quickly, the screen is beautiful and battery life is great. Installing Iwork wirelessly was very easy and quick. Iwork saves and open all my MS Office files flawlessly. And now with the App store open for computers I know I will never miss the Ipad. I only gave it four stars on value for price because I wish it could have more memory to be my only laptop. However, I am very happy with this laptop.

    Best travel laptop on the planet

    Posted .

    The use of SSD storage makes this laptop very responsive in spite of mediocre cpu speed. So thin and light that it's a joy to carry around. The display is beautiful. The only real down side is that it is not upgradeable, as the memory and solid state drive are soldered in. I strongly suggest buying the 128gig version instead of the 64gig, because you will quickly be left with no storage space.

    Great Mobile Laptop!

    Posted .

    I originally purchased the 2011 version MacBook Pro with the i5 Processor. I ended up selling that computer for this version MacBook Air! I love it! It is easy to take from home to work without struggling with weight and the MacBook Pro bulkiness!

    Great product for the person on the go. Small, lightweight, very portable. I'm temporally handicapped due to Knee Replacement and this little computer is easy to carry around and get me connected whenever I want or need to. Does everything that I ask it to do and more. It just works great. I couldn't be more pleased with my decision to buy this product, I highly recommend.

    Excellent product. Perhaps the best laptop.

    Posted .

    Overall the best laptop that I have owned. It is well build, performs excellently. I was originally hesitant about the 2GB RAM, but easily run all of the common business productivity applications. I also run a Bootcamp partition running Windows 7. The laptop runs that better than any other laptop I have had. The Solid State drive has enough capacity with room to spare. Startup and Shut down times are under 30 seconds either booting to MacOS or Windows 7.I would recommend this laptop to anyone that wants the extreme portability and capabilities that it offers.

    Great Computer!

    Posted .

    I recently had my Asus EeePC die on me and went looking for a new netbook to replace it. I looked around for a while but kept coming back to this computer. While it is more expensive, the quality construction and power won over in the end (2GB of RAM may not seem like a lot but with the solid state drive it is really quick). After having it for 2 months I have to say it was worth every penny and more.

    I love my Macbook Pro!

    Posted .

    This is absolutely my favorite laptop I have ever owned. I am a recent convert to the Mac world, but I am loving their systems. This laptop is a solid piece of equipment. It is reliable, fast, and in my humble opinion, worth the investment.

    Decent Toy

    Posted .

    Great product for travel and basic work. Amazing battery life super fast startup, but not good enough to store pics and music. It is a good add on byt will not replace a macbook pro unless you take the top of the line model which is a bit overpriced I think.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My 11.6" Macbook Air is so convenient and so much fun. I wavered back and forth between buying this computer or an iPad. But I'm so happy with the decision I made.

    Not for everyone

    The screen size isn't good for everyone. The size is sweet if you need to carry it around a lot. Very fast.
