    Beyond frustrating in every way possible.

    Three days after my initial purchase of my MacBook air I had to take it in and return it for another MacBook air that developed the exact same problem as the first one did. It seems as though Apple cannot get their stuff together when it comes time to install updates on the new MacBook air. Computer needed an extensive time investment on my end which was very frustrating... Considering I just spent $900 to waste hours and hours of my life trying to configure and get this computer to work as it should. Not to mention the hold times when calling apple care. However I enjoy the extended battery life and speed of the device, so now that it's working it's fine I guess. As far as the Microsoft bundle protection or whatever it is - I haven't even installed it on the computer so I don't really know anything about it.

    Not pleased

    I just bought my new MacBook Air and I'm already having problems but wasn't even able to complete the setup, and it started have errors. I've spent two hours on the phone with Apple Support to have to wipe clean and brand new computer. I'm returning it first thing tomorrow.

    Great choice, sorry I waited so long

    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.

    $100 difference

    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!

    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.

    Excellent Portable MacBook!

    Posted .

    This was my very first experience with Mac, as well as a purchase I carefully thought about before committing to it. My goal was to get a current, portable laptop that I could travel with, was very light, with good battery life and at least USB 3.0 I/O. I was amazed how quickly the Mac boots up, it is also pretty much silent, with no fans to make noise. Aside from intensive CPU processes such as video editing (that's more for a MacBook Pro), the Air doesn't get really hot. The keyboard is better than I expected, very responsive, and the touchpad is nice, though I prefer a mouse. The screen resolution is good, above 720p, with surprisingly decent audio output. The battery is very long lasting, and the charger uses a strong magnet hold, it recharges quickly too! I have yet to test the power that is the Thunderbolt connector, probably going to expand it with a dock, but I'm confident the features it provides will more than satisfy my needs. The two USB 3.0 ports work nicely already, I was able to transfer a 2.0 GB 1080p video clip from a microSD card via a card reader to an external HDD (using the Air as a conduit) in under two minutes, very impressive. Even though video editing is best on stronger MacBooks, the Air was able to render a three-minute video to 720p in under ten minutes with iMovie, far better than what I had with my 2009 Dell Inspiron dual-core on Sony Movie Studio. The flash storage built into the MacBook is what makes it fast, but the lower capacity may turn some users away. A simple external HDD is all that's needed to fix it! I'd rather have the speed than capacity tied to a slow boot. The Mac OS is fairly responsive and does take a bit of adaptation, but not as bad as I thought it would be. If I were switching solely to Mac, I wouldn't have to worry about file compatability with Windows, but I've found solutions to it. Despite the cost, I found this to be a worthy buy! Perhaps in a few years I'll add a MacBook Pro to my collection too!
