8 November 2011
  • Summary: The 11-inch MacBook Air continues to define the premium ultraportable laptop segment. From its uni-body aluminium chassis, to its razor thin profile, the 11-inch Air does more than just look pretty -- it comes equipped with a powerful Intel Sandy Bridge Core i5 processor that helps the slimmest MacBook ever deliver quite a performance punch.
  • Pros: Ultra-slim form factor, Uni-body aluminium chassis, Thunderbolt port
  • Cons: Few connectivity ports

  • Conclusion: The MacBook Air comes pre-installed with OS X 10.6.5 and your usual suite of i applications such as iPhoto, iMovie and Garage band that will help you get started quickly. A trial version for Microsoft Office 2008 was also present on our unit.

Apple MacBook Air (11.6-inch) Review

Digitaltrends
9 November 2010
  • Conclusion: While we tip our hats to that particular class of notebook for sliding prices for compact notebooks south, along with consumer expectations, the MacBook Air makes few of the same concessions in a form factor that no company outside Apple can really contest. For users who prize both mobility and utility, this may be the most livable 11.6-inch notebook we’ve ever had the pleasure of using.
  • Pros: Class-leading boot and resume times, Full-size keyboard, enormous trackpad, Surprising power for productivity and gaming, Gorgeous, high resolution 11.6-inch display, Unmatched aluminum unibody build quality, Respectable volume for its size
  • Cons: Shallow, mushy keyboard, Limited port selection, Display doesn’t lean back past 45 degrees, No removable battery, RAM, HDD

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch, 2010)

LAPTOP Magazine
21 October 2010
  • Summary: Apple said it would never make a netbook, and it hasn't. The 11-inch MacBook Air is a powerful ultraportable that makes other systems in its class look positively bloated. More important, this machine never keeps you waiting, thanks to the way it uses flash memory. We just wish the hinge for the display were a bit tighter to prevent unwanted movement.
  • Pros: Amazingly thin and light design, Wakes instantly from sleep boots very fast, Comfortable keyboard and large gesture-friendly touchpad, Webcam makes FaceTime calls, Surprisingly strong speakers, Good battery life
  • Cons: No SD Card slot, Keyboard not backlit, Lid sometimes falls back, Competing ultraportables have faster CPUs

  • Excerpt: It can't match the outstanding battery performance of its 13-inch counterpart, but the updated 11-inch version of the MacBook Air still provides a welcome improvement in battery life, as well as performance that bodes very well for the forthcoming generation of Haswell-based laptops .
