Summary: I was under the assumption that the laptop came with a charger, I think that if you are going to sell the computer without the charger that it should be included in the description. This is the second used laptop that I have purchase and the first time I have had to buy a charger.
A little more care from the seller and you'd be grabbing an amazing bargain

Summary: The laptop itself runs really smoothly and fast like a mac should. However, there is a lump in the middle from something that has been installed by the seller. It makes shutting the laptop for sleep mode not possible as it doesnt actually shut properly unless it has a constant slight force. The battery life is fairly non-existent and it barely lasts past 30-40 minutes. I also cannot sign in to app world clearly undermining why I got the mac.
Summary: ****TO ANYONE'S CONCERN, THE LAPTOP WAS BOUGHT BY MYSELF FROM LOCAL APPLE STORE, I TRIED TO RETURN THE LAPTOP WITHIN 30 DAYS WITH ORIGINAL RECEIPT BUT WAS TOLD EXCHANGE IS ONLY 30 DAYS.***** it's fast, i will give you that. but i think there is some design flaw making these machines natural troublemakers. mine freezes from time to time and even 3 freezes after fresh install in 2 days. no apple error window popped up at all.
Summary: Maybe my MBA was faulty, but this thing heats up like there is no tomorrow, running low intensive tasks seemed to get this thing uncomfortably warm, sure OSX is nice, but the hardware is pretty garbage.
Lovely kit but wifi connectivity drops continuously

Summary: I love the Macbook air for being so slim and light but I have found it almost unusable as it keeps losing internet connectivity. I have spent quite a lot of time online looking for fixes, none of which have helped. I work in a variety of locations using whatever wifi is to hand, so I can't solve the problem by buying an Apple router which is often suggested as a solution.
Summary: The MacBook air is no doubt very small and light which makes it ultra portable. But apple seem to have overlooked the rise of the netbook....which is all the Air really is. If you want something that is perfect for your on-the-move computing, which is what the air is intended for (i don't think in most cases you can say a computer with no disc drive can be your main computer) get with the times and get a netbook. They cost £300 or less!!
Summary: I recently bought this delicious new machine in order to take it with me on a round the world trip. The reviews were great, as was the weight, and the lack of optical drive I could overlook. Like many of the reviewers above, I thought this looked like the first truly 21st century computer, the future, and the ideal computer for a backpacker, taking just 1.5kg of his 20kg limit for every flight he took. However..
