    Thin, Everyday Use, Perfect.

    First off, if you want a Mac, this is a no brainer. The Pro is outdated and very big, and the Retina is a huge chunk of change; save it for the professional use. For the everyday user, the Air is fantastic.<br><br>For the PC users (as I was before I got this Air), I would strongly recommend this laptop. It is more expensive than possibly a similarly priced PC, but the build quality and design I believe is second to none. Mac OS is so phenomenal to use; I already hate simply scrolling on my PC. There is almost nothing wrong with this computer. The only problem is the upgradability, but with the SSD, speed is almost a none issue. Having no drive is a good thing in my opinion, I almost never use it and having an external is more convenient. Same goes for hard drive. Obviously I want a 512 GB SSD, and the 128 is a tad small, but it is SO zippy. Truly incredible performance. I also upgraded to 8 GB beforehand, and I don't see how this computer would excel for at least 2-3 years. Add in the incredible resale value of Macs, and this is a great, great buy.<br><br>Unless you're a hardcore gamer, I see absolutely no reason to not buy a Macbook Air as your new computer. The 13 inch is fast enough to replace a desk top, and it can handle almost anything you throw at it. This is THE best student laptop you can buy, and instead of buying a cheap PC that you will need to dole out more money to upgrade or replace, I'd invest in one of these and I'd be surprised if it doesn't last you the rest of your HS or college years.Read full review

    My Dream Apple MacBook Air

    I bought me an Apple MacBook Air for Christmas... I did lot of research before because it's not an inexpensive product and there is a lot of variety "a lot cheaper" butttttt..... It all depends on your taste and needs... I like things to look nice, even though you could find this macbook with many extras sometimes you end up paying same price as a new one. But I paid half of the price for a new one and I can still have money to choose the extras I need and want.<br><br>For me Apple is the BEST, the price is always worth it even if it's the regular price. If you haven't try it, give it a chance. I have a friend that bought 3 laptops for her kids, and end up buying Mac because viruses are harder to get and kids sometimes doesn't know and tend to catch more viruses in computers.<br><br>So it's a 'computer' portable for every member of the family: home, kids and professionals. And you can do/edit/create more things with music, pictures. I found my iphoto has a feature to create effects on pics, tag names on it and add info on pics of exact location that drops a pin on a google map. So next time you don't know where you file certain picture you could search it by file names or place you've have already tag... that's neat for me that I'm not a pro at it!! And instructions and tips are very easy to follow as I said, I'm not an expert in computers, but I feel like one. Iphoto also have a direct menu button you can export you pics directly to Facebook (log-in), e-mail, etc. And syncronize with Iphones your pics, music and address book just by plug-in your usb or by bluetooth.<br><br>You could take a pic of yourself with photo booth at the moment and do everything already mention with this pic, make effects, turn it black & white, sephia, create a scrapbook with just one button touch, etc. Still learning fun things that you could not do with a Windows PC.<br><br>Hope this help some people that are not to computer friendly to know that this could be easier that a regular one.Read full review

    Apple MacBook Air

    This laptop is very light and comfortable to have on your lap, even for long periods of time. The screen is bright and clear. The keyboard is comfortable to use and the backlighting of the keys comes on automatically in low light. It is virtually silent due to its solid state drive. When the fan does come on it is hardly noticeable. I had an Apple Powerbook G4 for 7 years with zero issues - no viruses - no blue screens - nothing - I just wanted to upgrade due to a lack of video streaming capability with the old technology. The Air performs wonderfully. I would highly recommend it.
