        Comments about Apple 11.6" MacBook Air Notebook Computer:

        This is my first Mac, and so far I'm really liking it. It was almost $200 cheaper here than at [*], so it provided a great opportunity to finally see what all the hooplah is about. It's taking some time to get used to the differences between Macs and PCs, but it's nothing difficult--just different. It boots up and shuts down in the blink of an eye, it's small and light, the keyboard is comfy and easy to type with (although I keep hitting Function instead of Control...)...pretty amazing how powerful it is for such a tiny little machine. So far, I'm loving it!

            I love this computer! The price was great, the size of it is very portable; the only thing I dislike is that it doesn't have a CD ROM. Shipping was super quick too! Definitely recommend this computer.

                                  My first apple. Works well, can't upload ipages docs to gmail is pretty stupid, but that's how the giants battle it out. Have gotten used to the smaller screen no problem, and my eyes aren't the best, so pretty good there. High quality laptop.

                                  The Mac book air I purchased is outstanding. It's fast vibrant and lightweight. I have no issue with this purchase and I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a laptop.

                                  Purchased the MacBook Air (11.6 inch) on the emphatic advice of my (computer engineer) daughter. Wonderfully portable Mac with features I thought were only available on the iPhone, but I am still transitioning from the archaic PC environment!

                                          The only thing I was worried about when getting my 11.6-inch MacBook Air was the size of the screen. I was used to a 13-inch screen on my MacBook pro back from 2006. At first, it killed me. I like having freedom on the desktop to put word documents next to browsers and I thought I'd have to change my ways. But after toying with it, I wouldn't want it any other way. I love the small compact stature of the Air and how light it is; so much that I'm already used to the screen size and I've had it only a week. My girlfriend has a MacBook Pro with a 13-inch screen and when I look at things on it, my first reaction is, "Wow, it's kind of bulky." haha, she hates when I say that. The only problem that i've had it is freezes up on occasion. I've found that if you hit the space bar or mouse pad at the exact second it goes to your screen saver, it locks and I've had to restart it. I've learned to wait literally two seconds for it to full go into screen saver mode before waking it up.
