The rMBP 15'' is already pretty light, coming in at 4
2 weeks ago
Summary: I recently downgraded from a rMBP 15'' to the MBA 13'', and I wish I had done it sooner. As a science major, I always had at least 10lbs worth of textbooks in my backpack at a time. The rMBP 15'' is already pretty light, coming in at 4.5lbs. The Macbook Air 13'' is 2.9lbs. I can honestly say that when you're carrying that many textbooks on a daily basis, 1.6lbs makes a huge difference. Couple that with the crazy good battery life on the MBA and you have a winner.
Excerpt: Best computer I have ever owned. Previous Windows user never to return back. I'm converted and now an Apple believer. Only regret is that it took so long to see the light. BH prompt and excellent to work with. Have bought from them for years and always completely satisfied.
Excerpt: I bought this as an alternative to a tablet for travel and it's absolutely perfect. My main use is for photo editing and writing, and it works seamlessly when paired with an small external drive to save the files and work on them on the go. I'm also using large photo files and I've had no issues. The most appreciated feature though is the lack of weight- definitely helps a ton while out and about.
Excerpt: I have several apple computers, I brought this one to do field media work. I needed as laptop that was powerful and lightweight for travel, as always apple products has never disappointed me yet. Great laptop!
