On the positive side, my opinion of the MacBook Air is a very good one. It's very convenient to use, very light, and its flash memory gives it a powerful speed for internet surfing (as long as your connection follows). I'm an Apple client since 15 years, and this is my third laptop so I know why I chosed it. For customer hesitating buying a little laptop, I reckon this one is a better choice than any actual tablet on the market. I saw some tablet now on display with a keyboard; I can't see the difference with a MacBook AIr, except if one can't help touching the screen to let fingerprint on the window. Also, it's Apple design, that is fine and quality look, plus reliable material. On the minus side, do not expect to use a MacBook Air for a CD or DVD player, as there is no disc drive on it. You'd ever need to use a special plug if you want to avoid wifi and connect with an ethernet cable. As it's very flat, there is no hard disk in it, or a very limited one capacity wise. The size of this model is still quite small, even if Apple provides a 13'', you'll never get the eye comfort of a MacBook pro, but it's worth owning this pretty thin machine.
