I’ve had numerous laptops from dell to sony and in the last few years an apple macbook pro 17′ (home) and 15′ (work). This little macbook air beats them all. I upgraded to the i7 processor, it’s amazingly fast and plugs into my 23′ monitor to become a full desktop. I run adobe creative suite with no lags or problems. The only downside is you’ll need separate adapters to connect to a standard dvi monitor and ethernet. Also i recommend a decent case as it feels delicate and you’ll want to protect it (i bought an larobe sleeve http://www.
Super fast, the battery lasts forever, super light and beautiful and the operating system is amazing. If only it would have a bigger disk.
I tried the laptop and expected poor results from a thin ,fairly slow and under ram device. But it amazed me with its easy ,fast use and even ran final cut pro ,all the adobe products ,little slow to render but for a 4 g machine it was good. I’ve been converted to the apple god ,it took years but its very good ,light and battery lasts very well ,the new version is suppose to be slower processor at 1. 6 when needed to save battery. Lack of dvd was not a issue as it takes usb and connects to my wireless server and cloud ,so get you wallet out and buy one ,and after a couple of years you can sell it for a good amount not like pc which is worth nothing after 6 months ,so a better investment too.
Got it at a knock-down price as it supposedly had minor blemishes on the outer casing. When it arrived the only mark on it was a small mark the size of a needle-point on an edge of the casing. It took me quite some time to actually find it. The thing fired up without problem and i have been using it ever since. The hardware and software all work perfectly. Due to what i actually paid for this, it was a great buy.
I bought the 13′ 256gb from the apple store the other day. Easily the best best purchase i have ever made. Dont miss windows and microsoft one tiny bit and cant see myself ever going back. The software and hardware work perfectly together. It is also incredibly thin and light.
