Out of the dark ages, into the light. I'm an Apple, and have shoved the PC out an upper story window. Adieu! Anyone looking at MacBook Air, please make the plunge, this is the MOST amazing laptop. Everyone in the family owns one now, I was last in line. We all know what computers are able to do...but did you know, the Notebook by Apple makes you feel younger, more intelligent, a cut above the rest. You will drink more expensive latte at the coffee shop, because you deserve it. Beauty and function, a breeze to use. Thank you B&H, as always, you are THE BEST!!!

Great Machine with some flaws

The MBA is a great computer tool, only issues is a glitch that turns the screen black as if it were still in sleep mode and that can't be fixed unless you manually shutdown the computer. Then there is an issue with wifi connection, the MBA seems to drop off wifi from time to time and it blocks unsecured networks at random leaving you with out internet connection even though the network options states you are connected.

    B&H was prompt with their service; received earlier than expected. Apple MacBook is used by my child at school, and this enables him to use all the features seamlessly at home. In addition, we enjoy the ease of system connectivity to other Apple devices. You cannot go wrong with this laptop.

                  This is my 6th laptop but first Mac! After so many problems with Dell & HP boy.. this Mac feels like voyage! I was waiting for a good deal & when my friend told that its on sale at B&H, I just jumped to grab! It arrived in couple of days with no shipping charges & tax. The price i paid is the price it is listed on the site. Period. The best thing is battery life. No more pluggin in all the time! Charge once, and forget about recharge for rest of the day. Its so easy & fast to start the system!!! My agony of finding the START button in windows 8 ended right there! No dots circling on your screen while u wait for ur system to start/boot. I like the ease & speed. Mac is known for its integral security, so I am little less worried. Coming from windows, one thing I miss is the right click. Also the navigation buttons could have been slightly bigger. I have iphones/ipads/AppleTV in my home, it all got syncronized! However, if small screens are not yout thing, go for 15" at the least!

                      I am a casual user, but I really appreciate the solidity of the MacBook and the reliability of the Apple OS. It is pretty nice to be able to use it for so many hours without having to plug it in.

                        This laptop is everything advertised: lightweight, well designed, powerful enough for a social media processional and pretty too.

                        The track pad is responsive, smooth and with great functions.

                        Yes there are thinner, lighter laptops on the market but you honestly can't beat the quality of a Mac Air.

                                  It's very fast. One time it froze on me. I called tech support and they had to have me turn it off and on again. They were very nice though so I kind of forgave them. I moved my 8 year old windows computer using the free parallels software so I have everything from my old comp with me still.

                                  I had never owned a Mac but most of my friends love theirs, so I decided to give it a try. I love it because the illuminated keyboard is really helpful when the light is dim. I use my Mac for work and school and I like the way my documents are organized and the lightweight, I can easily carry it everywhere. The only small drawback is that you need to know the shortcuts to close or quit your windows. I know I will get use to it.

                                    I have had the MacBook Air for about a week and wish I had bought it earlier. I opted for the older 13.3 MacBook 1.3 I5 and couldn't be happier with the machine! I did some research and found that the 1.3 would be plenty for what I was doing (college student). I loaded MS Office on it with no issues and stream video without any issues. Like I said it's a great product and B and H had the best price.

                                      I have three girls, and this is the third MacBook Air I've purchased. Great computer, solid state hard drive = no moving parts. Powerful, loaded with all the software and apps to hit the ground running. Apple quality, rock solid, dependable. Plays nice with all their Apple gadgets. Apple photo software is free and very user friendly.
                                      Very thin, lightweight, great display, easy to operate, great price and free shipping. Worth evert dime.

                                          Can't got wrong with an Apple product. This is my 3rd Apple computer purchase and second from B & H Photo. The MacBook Air was a graduation gift for my son who graduated high school and is headed off to college. The perfect Grad gift and excellent service and value with B & H!
