Summary: As a windows user, I kept hearing how great Apple computers are. Since I needed a laptop I thought I would try one. The 11' Air is beautiful and the battery lasts 9+ hours and charges up quickly. No complaints about the Air. The learning curve for the operating system however, is huge.
Summary: I ordered this computer for my wife to replace an old computer she has been using to read and send her e mails. She found the print to be too small to read comfortably and the measures necessary to enlarge quite inconvenient. We have returned the computer with the intention to order another from Amazon which will be easier for her to change fonts to a larger version.
Summary: I wanted to post this because I haven't noticed it on Amazon, and I think it's a growing problem that still hasn't been explicitly addressed by Apple. It's happened about 5 times now: I open up the Air and shortly after the screen goes black. I then have to re-awaken it by typing a key. In my case it's happened when operating on battery at lower than 30%.
Twice to the Genius Bar in the two weeks since purchase

Summary: Order arrived on time, out of the box the machine wouldn't boot but I managed to fix that via online forums from another computer, then there was no sound. Took it to the store to fix where the technicians told me likely the computer was not assembled correctly, worked for a week, but now the sound is off again and I'll have to go back. Had I bought the computer at the store they would have switched it out, which I'll definitely do from now on. Not cool Amazon, not cool.
Summary: Although I think I will enjoy the computer, I had to pay to get the computer reset to get the old password. I never received response to an email to Tech Fill on how to by pass the old password. I needed to install some software and of course could not without a valid apple i.d. and password.
Summary: This item was given to me as a gift. I am an avid mac person, and I have Imac and macbook (just sold) and I was given the 2011 model of macair 1.6. First this, should not be your only mac. I am scared of the 2gb ram, but so far no problems with mt lion. After I put on a few programs and the operating system, I have 44 gb left on the hard drive. But if you use itunes match, amazon drive, dropbox, spotify, pandora, you don't need music on your system.
Excellent ultraportable but with significant constraints

Summary: With the latest CPU, performance should be fine for most users. However, the battery lasts only 5 hours, which is a major trade-off. Also, the 128GB SSD means you may potentially run into capacity issues.
