"Very portable and sweet!!!"4.0 starson by Shandapaul
Pros: Compact!! Normal size key board, excellent battery life, portability, good speakers for a small laptop.
Cons: Small fonts that hurt my eyes and give me a headache. No backlit keyboard. Need more hard drive space than the 64GB. Too expensive!!!
Summary: For portability, I debated between this product and the ipad. And I came to the conclusion of buying this Macbook Air over the ipad simple because the ipad is way over priced and is not a computer(no SD card or USB port).This computer(MBA 11" 64GB) flat out died on me. After updating the computer via Mac Software Update and try to restart the computer it would not start. Scary!!
I am in my forty's and is beginning to use reading glasses. I don't need my glasses when I am on my 13" MacBook Pro, but this 11" MacBook Air is hurting my eyes and giving me headache and body aches whenever time I am on it simple because the webpage fonts are too small. I have to constantly use the zoom button to expand my viewing field which diminishes the screen quality on each zoom +, but that is the only way I can view most webpages on this machine - Still love this stylish machine.

I returned it to the retailer immediately. As I was still within the return policy period, I thought about returning the product period. However, I gave Apple the benefit of the doubt that this defect is one in a million and I would not experience this again from another Macbook Air 11".
Updated on Apr 18, 2011My 11" Air is charging up to 95%. Called Apple Tech Support. In order to calibrate, I was told to drain my battery and let stand for over five hours and recharge. On the fourth hour now since drainage. In the next one and half hour, I will plug back in. let's see if it charges to 100%, instead of 95%. Oh boy don't want to bring this one back again.
