Apple MacBook Air

by Mitchell T.
(Scranton, PA, USA)

I have owned a MacBook Air for about 3 months and I am very pleased. Although, as with all laptops there are some quirks that I would like to have worked out.

First off, the monitor on the thing has about a half-inch of free play (slop, wiggle) and on some surfaces the monitor jiggles when I type. Which is extremely annoying sometimes.

Also, on the bottom right of the laptop right next to the trackpad, when you flex the aluminum it makes a snapping noise. Which is also very annoying sometimes. I didn't really choose the laptop, I got it as a Christmas gift. I was extremely fortunate and happy.

I have to say, I am extremely impressed with my laptop. It is the most powerful computer I've ever owned and yet it is the smallest and most portable. The trackpad is large and nice.

Although I think the button on the bottom should be easier to push down. I am mostly pleased with the Mac OS X Snow Leopard operating system. It is really fast and good-looking.

Although Apple claims the MacBook Air gets 7 hours of battery life on a full charge, I only get about 4 1/2 max. Maybe it's because of having the Bluetooth on. Who knows. I would have to say that I would recommend Apple laptops to my friends. They are good, high-quality machines with an operating system specifically made for them.
