"Beyond perfect for students."4.5 starson by ninjaturtle21
Pros: Lightweight, Small, Fast, iLife 11 included, Screen resolution, Sound quality, Full-sized keyboard, Multi-touch trackpad
Cons: Some users may find the 11.6" too small
Summary: I bought this for university. That means I needed something small, light, internet ready and comfortable to type on. The MBA is all of that and more!
The screen is gorgeous, the sound quality is much more than I was expecting from such a small machine and more importantly the thing is lightning fast. Boots up in mere seconds, runs multiple programs and applications simultaneously without any lag and the multi-touch trackpad makes browsing a cinch.
The screen looks amazing. And it looks amazing from pretty much any angle.
I can't join in on the "What! No backlit keys!" complaints because - Surprise! - I learned to touch type when I was in highschool. On that note, I can't say I miss the SD card slot either as I wouldn't have considered purchasing this machine for doing large volumes of photo editing in the first place (ie transfering to a USB stick is not a problem). In both cases the trade off was that the MBA ended up extremely slim and lightweight, and that was far more important for my needs than either illuminated keys or a photo card slot.
All in all, I would highly recommend this to anyone on the go who needs a full-featured, but ultraportable computer.
