5.0 out of 5 stars Laptop bliss..., 12 Aug 2009
This review is from: Apple MacBook Air Intel 2.13GHz/2GB/128GB SSD/GeForce 9400M (Electronics)
Wow. I can honestly say this is the best laptop I've owned. I thought long and hard before buying it (for my business) looking at Netbooks, the Air, lighter Windows laptops and even the MacBook Pro. The final choice was always going to be a second laptop that needed to be lightweight, yet high quality. I finally took the plunge a few weeks ago and went with my gut instinct for the top of the range Air.

So what it's like? Well, the spec might not be as good as the Pro range but for presentations and browsing the web it's perfect and fast enough for my tasks (and puts my Compaq laptop to shame when it comes to browsing). Visually it's stunning and there's no faulting Apple for the build quality. The aluminium casing looks good and despite the thinness, it feels sturdy. The wireless set-up works perfectly and is quick and reliable especially when visiting client's offices locating their networks with ease. It runs Office and opens docs created on the PC with no formatting issues, etc. I've also got iWork and am fast becoming a fan of Keynote which puts PowerPoint to shame.

The price is high but so far, worth every single penny. The one minor gripe is the lack of USB ports but that's a very, very minor thing compared to all the positives. As the title states, for me this is a superb bit of kit that delivers lightweight, high quality computing on the move. My shoulders also appreciate the lightness when I'm commuting to and from meetings! Brilliant.
