Expect everything. From a notebook that weighs almost nothing.

With the latest Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, up to 60 percent faster graphics, and faster flash storage, MacBook Air packs a lot of features into an astonishing 2.38 pounds.

  • newegg New Intel Core i5 processor. A big shift in power This 11.6” MacBook Air is outfitted with new Intel Core i5 processor. Integrating a faster processor, more powerful graphics, and a memory controller into a single chip makes for some serious performance. The new Intel HD Graphics 4000 offers up to 60 percent faster graphics — performance you’ll really notice in the games you play, the movies you watch, and the FaceTime calls you make. And MacBook Air now supports up to 8GB of memory, so you can run more memory-intensive applications without compromising performance.
  • newegg Faster all-flash storage. Even more instant gratification Part of what makes MacBook Air so responsive is that it’s designed entirely around flash storage. Not only does this make MacBook Air much lighter and more portable than traditional notebooks, it also provides faster access to data and gives you instant-on capability. This next-generation flash storage is up to 4x faster than a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive and faster than the previous-generation MacBook Air. So when you flip open MacBook Air, it starts up in seconds. Even after a month in standby mode, the screen springs to life. Apps launch quickly. And with no moving parts, flash storage stays quiet.
  • newegg Long-lasting battery. Instant on even after a month off Since space-saving flash storage leaves room for a bigger battery, you can devote more time to the things you enjoy most. Things like browsing the web, editing photos, and watching videos. Get up to 5 hours of battery life on a single charge on this 11.6" MacBook. Put MacBook Air to sleep, and it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days. And with Power Nap — a new feature coming this summer in OS X Mountain Lion — you’ll continue to receive new email and calendar invitations while MacBook Air is asleep. When it’s connected to a power source, it can download software updates and make backups with Time Machine. So when you come back to your MacBook Air and open it up, it’s on in an instant. And everything is right there waiting for you.
  • newegg Thunderbolt and USB 3. Make some powerful connections With the lightning-fast Thunderbolt port, you can connect your MacBook Air to the latest devices and displays, like the Apple Thunderbolt Display. But that’s not the whole story. MacBook Air also comes equipped with two USB 3 ports, so you can connect the latest USB 3 devices and access a pipeline that’s up to 10 times faster than USB 2. With just a few connections, MacBook Air transforms from an ultraportable notebook to a complete workstation.
  • newegg Wireless. You’re free to go Your MacBook Air finds available Wi-Fi networks automatically and lets you connect with just a click. So you can browse the web, send email, and print documents no matter where you are. And with Bluetooth technology, you can connect MacBook Air to Bluetooth-enabled devices like speakers and headphones. Even without all the wires, you’re totally connected.
  • newegg Display and camera. Worth a second look. And a third, And a fourth Corner to corner and pixel by pixel, the MacBook Air display is both an engineering feat and a design breakthrough. The display measures a mere 4.86 millimeters (0.19 inch) thin, yet the resolution is so high, you’ll feel like you’re looking at a much larger screen. And with good reason. This 11-inch MacBook Air features a resolution equal to that of a typical 13-inch notebook. Let your friends and family see more of you with the new 720p FaceTime HD camera. With three times the resolution of the previous FaceTime camera, every smile looks a lot brighter. And the widescreen format means everyone can fit into the picture without having to crowd around the display.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat product but buy the 128gb

Pros: feather light, pretty fast, mac OSX is nice for most personal use. trackpad is weird at first coming from PC but its sweet is you take the time to learn how it works.

Cons: 64gb wont cut it for most users. its not enough to store music, videos, programs, ext... its amazing for just simple internet use but if you plan to do any work at all consider the 128gb which is still very small.

Other Thoughts: amazing product with 1 major flaw. the limited memory options really hurt this product. Its sad that my macbook has the same size HD as my iphone 5. if your budget is closer too $1500 and you have a little bit of skill I'd recommend getting the 240gb ssd for $320 or the 480gb sad for $600 from a site you can find easy by searching for macbook ssd upgrade. I only use mine for Xcode to write iOS apps, but when I wanted to run a VM with windows for school the 64gb hd was too small to support it (you can run a linux vm if its a clean install) I have ubuntu on mine, only because backtrack wouldn't fit. On the plus side I have an excuse to go buy a new windows laptop now and tell the wife I need it for school :) lol.

5 out of 5 eggsA full laptop at a netbook size

Pros: -11" makes this laptop extremely portable. It's ridiculously thin, so you'll have no problem tossing it into your backpack if you're a student and going off to class. It'll go anywhere.

-USB 3.0 really is a night and day difference in this day and age. I have my MacBook connected to an external WD drive that serves as a Time Machine Backup. It's very speedy. See for speeds below

-Flash is fast. Photoshop opens speedily, and exports are no problem. Office and its suite all open in less than a second.

-Ivy Bridge is a huge boost for this laptop. Even under full load, the system barely flinches. Don't be fooled by the 1.7 Ghz, this thing holds its own. Also note, that the i5 inside has hyperthreading enabled, so we're talking 2 physical cores, with 4 logical cores.

-The display is at a higher PPI than that of MacBook Pros (sans Retina ones). It's very bright, very crisp, and you'll never once be bothered by any sort of fuzziness.

-It's nice that keyboard backlighting is standard on all MacBooks these days. I remember when it wasn't.

-Wifi performance is really, really good. Over my Linksys E1200, I see sustained throughput of 10MB/s. Very impressive compared to the MacBooks of yesteryear.

Cons: -Battery life is rather short compared to other MacBooks. It'll still get you through a days work, just realize you're shaving off a good 2 hours of projected battery life by springing for this model over the 13". It'll last me roughly 3.5 - 4 hours under word processing tasks, with photoshop editing and internet usage.

-While idle battery life is nice (~3-5% drop a day), recovering from sleep still takes forever. From when you open the clam shell to when the password screen actually becomes usable is still 3-5 seconds. The Apple quote of "springs instantly to life" should be more of "begrudgingly wakes up".

Other Thoughts: I will make no review of any of the software as that's more subjective in expirience than hardware. I only use the thunderbolt port to expand the display via an DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, so I have no clue how fast it performs. As a side note, yes, it will output audio over that adapter, unlike Macs a couple years back.

Here are the speeds of USB 3.0 ports and the internal SSD stick:
USB 3.0 read: 70MB/s
USB 3.0 write: 53MB/s

Internal SSD write: 139MB/s
Internal SSD read: 400MB/s

5 out of 5 eggsmac attack

Pros: it a mac most do not understand when you buy a mac your buying R&D and quality
ye for same $ i can buy a laptop with allot better hardware in fact for $200 less i got my I7 12 gig 750 gig ati 7670 2gig video 17" acer and power wise it will flat out smoke my $1000 mac air
but 2 years from now i bet my mac air will be running like it is new and butting ill have to restore my acer to default at leas 1 or 2 time buy then to get it back to running like new

Cons: ?

Other Thoughts: i am not a hard core mac user they all have problems and can break
but my mac mini i got in 07 with core 2 duo and 1 gig ram (i up graded to 4gig later )
and 80gig hd has run flawless for 5 years never a single crash open and blow dust out 1 time a years and it as ripped so many movies it is insane the hr's that little system has put in and it is on my 42" tv and is also the netflix box and is on and used every day and i account it to a good marriage between hardware and software and Apple has done a grate job at R&D
and just build good stuff
ye you pay more but you honestly do get what you pay for
my new acer I7 laptop is nice but the mac air you can tell is built with so much higher quality (just is in my opinion )

buy what you like i like both and have both a mac and a Win 7 i7 laptop
mac i love for trips flying acer i use more for taking to friends and gaming and they bot have a place in my home

4 out of 5 eggsGreat purchase for on the go

Pros: As always, apple impresses with this lightweight, thin macbook air that was just updated 2012. Its fast, and easy to carry around, especially if you need something more than just an ipad (keyboard, software, etc) then this is really useful

Cons: only has 64GB, which means I may consider purchasing a larger storage device in the future. But really, with icloud available, it probably won't be necessary.

Other Thoughts: if your not looking to lug around a larger laptop, then consider this!
