Macbook Air 11.6 inch video review – really a portable laptop you must love

netbooklive.com
8 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Managed to snug the 11.6 inch MacBook Air for a couple of hours last week and gave it a quick video hands-on and a, let’s say, mini review. I really had no time to run any tests on it and actually I’m not at all familiar with Mac OS, as you will be able to see in the clip.

Apple's 2010 MacBook Air (11 & 13 inch) Thoroughly Reviewed

  • Conclusion: I really like the form factor of the 11-inch MacBook Air. It's great to carry around. It's like an iPad for people who have to get real work done. I just wish it was faster. If Intel made a 32nm Core 2 Duo, clocked high enough the 11 would be perfect.
