    Comments about Apple 11.6" MacBook Air Notebook Computer:

    Let me start out by saying that there is a huge price difference between an iPad and a keyboard and an 11" MacBook Air, but essentially, we were using an iPad and a keyboard to take notes and for business productivity. The iPad is a great device, but still falls a bit short for true business integration. On the other hand, the MacBook Air is fantastic. It has a full-size keyboard and enough power to run any business app, as well as Adobe Creative Suite. Yet it can be plugged into an extended keyboard and a 27" Thunderbolt display. We love it! Only negative is battery life is a bit short.

      Comments about Apple 11.6" MacBook Air Notebook Computer:

      For a photographer/designer constantly flying or on the road, having power and portability is a must. I primarily use this to process my Sony NEX7 24MP RAW files with a bit graphic design on the side. With 8GB of RAM and the i7 processor, this computer does not break a sweat. I'm amazed on how instant the MacBook Air starts up, opens programs, awakes from sleep and shuts down due to the SSD. My only gripe is the screen. Don't get me wrong, it is nice and contrasty with good color gamut, but it is not an IPS screen so the viewing angles are limited. Compared to ultrabooks, the MacBook Air has the best balance of power, portability, ease of use and value.
