- Easy to learn and navigate
By Hannah F.
I am a current grad student. I ordered this for school purposes. I have used mac products before and I am impressed with this one. I am not a computer guru, but I know my way around both mac and windows.
-Brilliant display. It's very bright. The keyboard is lit so that helps with late night homework.
- Easy to learn and navigate. Even with non-apple products. I downloaded word and it works great on this mac, as does PowerPoint.
- Lightweight. This thing is so easy to carry. In my undergrad I had a traditional laptop, and it was so heavy to carry on campus. I have this one in a small sleeve and it is very easy to transport back and forth.
- Quiet - this thing does not make a lot of noise when typing. The key stroke isn't as deep, so the click isn't as loud, which is nice when you're in class taking notes.
- Excellent sound system - its speakers are clear and LOUD. Great for when you just have to have an impromptu dance party while making dinner with your kids :)
- Good battery life - I use this thing daily, and have to charge it about once a week, maybe twice a week depending on how much late night surfing I'm doing.
- Fast - it has great processing time. I'm constantly taking pictures on my phone and airdropping them to the MacBook Air (what can I say, my cloud is already full!). It takes literally seconds for this thing to download 35+ pictures.
- it has a USB port still. The newer MacBook Pro does not, which would drive me nuts!
I will say it can be a bit cumbersome to use the pad. I like a traditional mouse better, but this is easily resolved by attaching a wireless mouse (which I have for this computer - thank you USB port!)
It doesn't have a CD drive (bummer for watching dvds/playing cds)
Overall I'd say the quality is very good. As a student I am happy with the feautures and the fact that it is so easy to carry around with me.

Best laptop I've owned
By Drew Nelson
I debated between this macbook air and a MS Surface. I couldn't be happier with my decision to get the MacBook Air. It is incredibly fast, loads quickly, and it is so easy to travel with due to it's size and lightweight. I also bought the Asurion warranty which seems to be a much better deal than AppleCare.
