1) 2012 Macbook Air 13" Base Model.

2) Main computer and all I need.

3) Only take it in a backpack that has a dedicated foam pouch inside for your computer.

Hello all, first post and recent Mac convert here, New Years Day in fact, and very pleased to say that Apple has bought back the fun in computing for me.

Running a 2012 11" 1.7/i5/4GB/128GB and am having no problem at all using it as my main computer with my full filing system stored on Dropbox and accessed as I need.

Have the Speck snap-on hard case in smoky grey, excellent product and keeps the unit cool and safe and the Samsonite Inventure˛ Security Laptop Messenger which I can also thoroughly recommend as a stylish and functional EDC solution.

Only real problem I have is that I now want an Apple desktop, phone, tablet.........................

2013 13" i5 MBA (256GB / 8GB RAM). My one and only computer, which I plug into a Dell 24" IPS display on occasion.

Wrapped in bestskinsever matte skin (but only the top and the bottom) and usually slipped into a messenger bag with a padded section for laptops.

1. A brand-new 11"/i5/8/256.

2. It is my only computer (and with my reading glasses, all I really need).

3. When not in use, it sleeps in a vertical Outback Sleeve
and is carried, along with my other gear, in an amazing Tumi Knox Backpack.

1. My setup is in my signature. The 2013 i5 11" air has been great. I went with the 128GB base model because I have my iTunes and iPhoto libraries on an external drive.

2. It is hooked up to a Thunderbolt Display and is my main computer. I have a Dell Optiplex at work but I rarely use it.

3. I use a Dodocase Durables sleeve. It was a little pricey but the quality and feel are great. I use a ColcaSac shoulder bag. They make great sleeves too.

2013 13" MPBr 2.4 GHz i5, 4GB RAM, 128 GB SSD; Apple Thunderbolt Display; iPad Air 16GB; iPhone 5S

MBA 2012 11" base

Use it with 2 1TB usb 3.0 drives, one for my media, the other for time machine back ups still have around 20gb free on my SSD but am planning to upgrade to the 11" 2013 model with 256gb ssd (this was my 1st mac ever and i bought it on impulse without research)

This is btw my main and only computer, always carry it with me inside a foam sleeve/pouch in my messenger bag
