I have a somewhat interesting take on the 11.6-inch MacBook Air. I chose the 13-inch model for myself, but my father who is always on the go for business, chose this 11.6-inch model. He wanted the extra portability, and I wanted the extra performance of the larger machine.

Visually, the machines look different. My 13-inch model does not look significantly different from the front or rear compared to a full featured MacBook Pro. In other words, on the 13-inch model, which I love, the footprint of the device is basically the same as a 13-inch MacBook Pro. The difference is the slim side profile, and the two missing pounds.

This 11-inch model is not only light and thin, but has a smaller footprint too. It is striking to see. It looks small, and it's gorgeous. I do have some envy for the portability of this model compared to my own, which is light, but yet takes up just as much space so to say as a MacBook Pro.

The drawbacks to this model and the reason I chose the 13-inch? The processor included in this 11-inch machine is a fair bit slower. Comparing some online benchmarks, this entry-level 11-inch model with the 1.4 GHZ Core 2 Duo brought in about 70 percent of the processing speed of the entry level 13-inch model. While other parts of the machine are equally as fast, such as the graphics processor, solid state storage, and memory, the processor performance difference is not insignificant. You do feel a slight performance difference between the 13 and 11.

The included storage on this model is 64 GB. This will be plenty to store text documents and a moderately sized photo library. However, you will not store much video on here.

I have a MacBook Pro 15 inch and love it for every day home use. But, I sometimes travel overseas and to lug the 15 inch all over due to size and weight is not ideal. Currently I have a Samsung NC10 Netbook with Windows XP, 2gb ram, 160gb hard drive and use that for travel. I like the netbook for travel as it is small and light and has built in camera for Skype when traveling. Overall, not a bad device except for one thing.....it is slow!!! Even after upgrading to 2gb ram on the netbook it is just plain slow and sometimes moving around is painful and frustrating. But, it was the best choice until now. I checked out the new MacBook Air and it is a thing of beauty, so I picked one up. I like the slightly larger screen size then the netbook, which at times seemed too small. I also like the larger keyboard on the Air compared to the netbook. But what I like most is the speed. With the core 2 dual core processor and flash storage, the Air is quick. I never feel frustrated. The Air is also lighter then the netbook which for the size screen and keyboard is amazing. So here are my pro's and con's.


1. Quick- not a full speed notebook but for the size and weight this thing is great compared to netbooks.

2. Light- 2.3lbs for 11.6 inch Air is fantastic.

3. Keyboard- keyboard feels good.

4. Mac OS X- enough said. If you have never tried it compared to XP or Win 7 then you don't know what you are missing.

5. Storage- fast flash storage. More dependable compared to hard drive on mobile device.


1. Price- 1k for base 11.6 inch unit is not cheap by any means.

2. Storage- the storage is fast and more dependable but its expensive and limited.

I hesitated a lot to buy this thing, costing as much as it does.
I finally did, and LOVE it.

I have been using PCs for years. Have a PC at work, figured I'd just do the same at home.
Bought a netbook - price was great - but the screen was small and it just never was easy to use. Gave it to my neice.
Bought a 17" laptop with Vista - I actually thought Vista was OK, and I loved being able to make the screen resolution larger - so it was very easy on my 52 year old eyes. But the thing was HEAVY. So big and bulky I would often leave it home when going on a trip. Also got real tired of having to run anti-virus software (and pay for it), and having glitches regularly with various types of software - adobe, the sync programs, etc. In addition, if I was in bed and wanted to check something real quick, it took 30 seconds or so to boot up, and then had a glitch where the screen wouldn't turn on, so I'd have to put it to sleep and wake it up again.

I bought an iPad, and the instant on was great, but after using the iPhone4 I didn't like the screen resolution. In addition, it was quite heavy for holding up to read, did not have a keyboard, and couldn't play Flash videos. Sold it.

So finally bought this little guy, and it really fits the bill. I thought the 11" screen would be too small, but for some reason it seems much bigger. I think it's because it is so easy to scroll up and down, back and forth using the touch pad. (On the PC, the scroll never became "unconscious" - it often seemed to distract me just enough to find the proper place to push on the touchpad). Maybe it's the resolution of the Air, maybe it's the fact that it is so small I can position it right where I want it to be.

It jumps to life right away, I love that.
