Good: boot up, shut down speed are incredible, its quick than my Â£800 1 year old desktop
Bad: limited storage
Comment: I've had this for a couple of weeks now and so far it is so much better than my Ã‚Â£800 desktop computer everything on it is about 4 times as quick and my desktop is less than a year old. This is the perfect laptop for doing so many everyday thing e.g. FM 2011, internet, watching videos, editing photos and so much more, i really could rave on about this all day and i think have to my friends. But imo what makes this laptop even more exciting this that the mac app store and lion are out next year and i think with the app store this laptop will be fantastic. I would recommend a few accessory to go with this though, firstly a Wireless modem e.g. a 3 mifi so you can get internet anywhere, secondly a portable external hard drive to store you film and in my case photos (ive got millions), lastly a external dvd drive just so you can upload games and software. With these thing it really is the only computer you need and to anyone who calls it a netbook i would really suggest they use it for a day or so because this is nothing like any netbook there has ever been so please dont call it one because this is most defiantly a notebook and a brilliant one at that.
Good: Thin, light, well built and it doesn't run Windows.
Bad: The price.
Comment: Thin, light, well built and with the ultra smooth Apple OS this machine is excellent. It's not super fast but I use mine for business and always have multiple MS Office/Mac application open at the same time and it does a fine job. I replaced a much more expensive Dell XPS with a huge amount of memory and a 500GB disk drive but have not suffered. There is no comparison as the Air has much more reliable hardware, operating system and software.
Comment: This is a beautiful laptop but it could do with being cheaper.
