I recently bought a MacBook Air. I'd told the PC World Salesman what I wanted it for: mainly replaying and reviewing movie files shot during a driving lesson straight back to the pupil while still in the car. It has an SD card slot plus two USB slots. Now I wonder why I waited so long to own a Mac! Maybe price was something to do with it. It's quick to start up, intuitive and has useful extras like a good pre-loaded movie editor. It also looks and feel superb - the impression I wanted to... (read more)

I have had my MBA for just over 2 weeks and it is lightning quick. I had a black macbook before which was fast but this leaves it standing. Every job it takes on it copes with without a single lag, name me a pc that does that? I also had a dell pc with windows on and it took 5 - 10 minutes to boot, this take 5 - 10 seconds!! So inclosing, it is worth the money people, get one today. (read more)

It's probly been said a million times but i LOVE using macs. They are so much better than PCs. But when i upgraded to a macbook air i really wasn't expecting the battery life to be so short. I've done everything i should like leaving it to run out and everything, but it really is quite bad. I went to the apple shop and exchanged the battery but the new one is the same within a month. I want to stick with macs for defs, but they need to sort it i think. (read more)

An excellent laptop that fits neatly in the niche between a netbook and a notebook. Nice LED backlit screen, adequate battery life, friendly and powerful operating system. A little expensive. (read more)

I have owned a Revision C Air for a couple of months now. The reason for this review is to update a few points , that make the Air a more attractive prospect...
- Since launch, the Macbook Air has had its specifications upgraded (faster CPU, bigger disks) and has attracted a price drop at the same time. It is still not exactly fabulous value for money, but isn't meant to be bought with an eye on economy.
- Earlier models suffered from overheating issues, due to poorly applied internal... (read more)

I'm reviewing this laptop, not as an owner but as a validation of the Macbook Air as an work of art and a fashion accessory. A friend was rooting through a bag, similar to a laptop bag, but full or books and files, or so I thought, until out slide a Macbook Air that was nestled between a folder and book. My first impressions, wow!! The reason for it's introduction to the evening, was too look at a few video's and photo's, and it looked very classy while he was doing it! Lovely images, very...

Battery life is a little poorer than expected for me however as far as I am concerned this is the only bad point to mention about the Apple Mac book air.
Stylish and powerful enough to run some rather large programmes, often 2 to 3 open programmes at the same time however well recommend this apple laptop. (read more)

With Apple you get the best of everything, however in this case I think they have compromised by not having a DVD player which is a bad point in my opinion.
Still a great laptop, Light and powerful. Well recommend Apple MacBook Air. (read more)

This is an exceptionally expensive fashion statement but judging from the success of Apple's other over-priced fashion statements (iPhone and iPods) this may be a success.
It has a weak processor (1.6 in the cheaper model 1.8 in the top model) at the heart of it's inferior components. The screen isn't x-black or HD giving inferior picture quality to other laptops that are far cheaper. There is no internal disc drive so you have to carry an external drive with you to read media.
With the... (read more)

From my experience the Mac Air, for all its hype, is a great idea with a flawed execution.
In all fairness, I did borrow a new model from an acquaintance and had it just a half day, but during that short period of time I noticed the following shortcomings:
'The power connection is the usual Apple Mag-Safe attachment, but it goes in at an odd angle making it difficult to sit the computer on a flat surface. I had to fidget with it to stop the rocking. Push it too much one way and the... (read more)

Right, I conclude, that the Apple MacBook Air is impressive, very impressive infact, it really is the latest piece of engineering that will create a lot of hype in the market, no doubt!
Second of all, it beats it competitors, which ofcourse means it's the best, right?
When the price drops, in my opinion it will be treated as the best too, I think everyone will want one to impress others as it makes other laptops look ugly, useless and fat.
However, as far as I am concerned, so what? Not long... (read more)
