Apple excellence again!

Summary: Excellent laptop with the design and features I would expect from an Apple product. 13" screen is all you need in a laptop and the weight and small profile of the MacBook Air make it easy to take it anywhere! I am thrilled.
Summary: If you're looking for a Windows PC equivalent, you've come to the wrong place. A Macbook is not a Windows PC, and that's the beauty of it. Apple does not believe in the numbers game of the hardware spec of a computer. Instead, it focuses on creating a beautiful machine in which all the parts work in harmony creating a spectacular result for the end user. Being a PC-guy, it took me a long time to even give Apple a chance.
It's late 2013, and I just switched to a Macbook air from a PC. I am not planning to go back.

Summary: When Apple makes the best, fastest PC on the market (i.e. running Windows via Bootcamp), there is no other choice but to buy a Mac. This is coming from a lifelong PC power-user. No more noisy fans, no more whirring, slow disk drives. No more idiotic bloatware gumming up the circuits. It's late 2013, and I just switched to a Macbook air. I am not planning to go back.
Summary: Another perfect laptop in the Macbook Air line. It's my 4th Mac laptop and best yet. The illuminated keyboard wasn't on my 2009 Air and man, did I miss not having it. Other speed and port enhancements make the Air the finest laptop computer going, be it for home, work, travel or school. With DVD and CD's on the way out there seems no call to lug the added bulk an optical drive adds.
Ideal laptop except for a couple of concerning points

Summary: Perfect machine except for a couple of things: -sleep/wake failure: sometimes that screen dims and then immediately sleeps while the backlit keyboard and hard drive/sound/network card are still active and the only way to use the display again would be to force a restart. a search on google would show that MANY people who have bought the 2013 MBA have this problem ("black screen of death").
Summary: If you are a writer or simply an avid web-browser, the 2013 Macbook Air is one of the best laptops on the market. I love how light the computer is (you can definitely carry it in one hand and type with the other.) While there are faster laptops for the price, this one has the best keyboard that I have ever used, and since I am a journalist, a good keyboard is quite important.
Summary: i made the switch from PCs to a 27" iMac it was way easier than i thought it would be learning a new OS and all i fell in love with just how easy Apple made everything but a 27" iMac is not exactly portable so I bought the new Macbook Air to use when I travel again i love it it just works
Great computer, but takes some time to adjust and using PCs for 20 years.

Summary: This is my first Apple computer and I must say I am having some difficulty learning the ins and outs after many years as a PC user. Apple has many tutorials to help the transition. The SSD is super fast and the battery life is better than any computer I have ever owned.
Summary: I love my Mac book Air. It is super fast and easy to use. I love that I can use it with my iPhone too! There are so many great apps available. This was my first Apple computer and there was a learning curve but everything was so easy that the adjustment was easy! It is very light and portable with super battery life!! No complaints!
