  • Conclusion: But once you have the MacBook in your hands, it's hard to stay grumpy. This thing is amazing, from its Retina display to its somehow shallow yet tactile keyboard to its featherweight convenience and remarkable battery life. Apple can work wonders when it wants to, and it's done it again.
  • Pros: Incredibly light, thin, and compact, Epic battery life, Brilliant Retina display and backlit keyboard
  • Cons: USB Type-C port won't fit existing peripherals, No SD card slot or MagSafe power connector, Shallow keyboard travel takes some getting used to

Apple MacBook (2015)

PC Magazine
20 February 2009
  • Conclusion: The 12-inch Apple MacBook is the thinnest, lightest Mac laptop yet, combining the power of OS X with extreme portability and more than 14 hours of battery life.
  • Pros: Incredibly thin. Weighs less than 2 pounds. Excellent battery life in testing. Retina Display. Great-sounding speakers. Available in three colors.
  • Cons: Only one USB-C port, with no adapters included. USB-C is not Thunderbolt-compatible. New keyboard and Force Touch trackpad take some getting used to. Can only be upgraded at initial purchase.

Apple MacBook Air

PC Magazine
13 February 2009
  • Conclusion: The MacBook Air is officially the thinnest laptop, and the lightest of those with a 13-inch screen. But there were compromises that had to be made.
  • Pros: Thinnest laptop on the market. Simply gorgeous. Amazing 13-inch display on a 3-pound chassis. Full-size keyboard. Doesn't load ultra-low-voltage processors. Eco-friendly. Gesture-enabled touchpad. Reasonable prices.
  • Cons: Only one USB port, three ports total. No ExpressCard or card-reader option. Battery is not user upgradable. Productivity may take a hit with only 3 hours of battery life running Vista.

  • Pros: Intel Core i5-2467m provides improved processing and integrated graphics capabilities. Better trackpad. Thunderbolt technology enables high-speed data transfers. Attractive, lightweight construction and design.
