This is quite simply the best laptop I've ever owned, and I've owned quite a few. This is the first Apple laptop I've ever owned or even used. Before this, I'd always thought Apple computers were overpriced and never really saw the attraction of them - the second I opened the box for this one, all that changed.
The laptop is beautifully designed, cool smooth metal all around, amazingly thin, the illuminous Apple logo is beautiful to just look at. Although I got the basic specs (128gb SSD, 4gb memory) this is more than enough for what I want to do. It boots up in a matter of seconds (about 5 or 6), and everything else is lightning fast. The battery, when doing simple browsing or word processing, lasts around 12 hours. That's right. 12 hours. The operating system might take some getting used to if you're used to Windows machines, but once you do get used to it, it's the best operating system there is. Simple, intuitive, and again, lightning fast. Everything's so much easier with Apple software than it is with anything else.
It really is very hard to come up with any disadvantages. Even pricewise it's reasonable - I got mine for just over £700, which for what you're getting really is not overpriced at all, despite the reputation Apple has. Really, the only slight disadvantage I can come up with is that it doesn't have a CD drive - but then again, I've not really missed having a CD drive at all.
Wow. When i first bought this laptop I was amazed. It was absolutely beautiful, the whole structure and display really are gorgeous. When I started using it I found it to be the fastest laptop I had ever had, even when my memory was very low it still managed to run lightning fast!
I never in my entire life expected it to be so light! With other laptop's ive had to buy a proper laptop bag so that I can carry it. This though you can fit in any bag, takes up no room and half the time I completely forget I even have it!
I have been using it for a while now. The best thing about this notebook is the weight and size! If I need to take it somewhere and try to hide it, I can easily slip it into a jiffy envelope. Now how cool is that!
It is definitely one of the fastest notebook I''''ve ever use with very good battery life. I am rating this as four stars only because it''''s not user upgradable. Very limited expansion options. Well, having said that, this kinda applies to most Apple products. As I am not using this for a heavy duty gaming or high spec work related matters, it would suffice. All in all, it''''s still a fantastic laptop.
ok - this is the most beautifully crafted laptop you'll ever have seen. it's stunning. sleek brushed aluminuium, and smooth glass make a wining combination. but the other macbooks are made of the same materials!
i don't get this laptop: in fact i ended up selling mine and upgrading to the regular macbook. sure, it's thin. very thin. so thin it actually hurts your palm if you hold it on its side. however, it is also missing connections and input facilities. sure, do away with a dvd drive, but why not have more usb ports? i mean really, would it have killed apple to put another usb on?
the other problem is that it doesn't have a very big hard disk.
ultimately, if you just want a portable web book, then get one - you don;t need to spend twice as much to get air. if, on the other hand, you actually want a laptop that can play movies, games etc. then get the regular macbook.
this is redundant!
