    Wow, saw my friend with it in class, very impressed and considering getting it (in need of new laptop). Is it really that great of a laptop for simple uses?

    As long as you can live on a smaller HDD and do not want to do heavy gaming... I would say its the best!!

    It's the perfect laptop for simple uses.

    It more than suffices for basic uses. You just need to ask yourself if you are willing to pay a premium for the slimmer size and lack of certain features like disk drive and only 1 USB port. :)

    The Macbook Air is a great computer and for most people it is more than enough to do normal tasks. I wish I got a Macbook air, but when I bought Pro they were still the Core 2 Duos :D

    I just got one a couple weeks ago and it is the perfect computer for basic tasks. I just LOVE the ultraportability. It is so easy to carry around and that's a huge deal for me. I can't even feel it in my bag, especially compared to my old MacBook that I definitely knew was there dragging me down :p. The screen is amazing for only being 11.6 inches. It's a fantastic computer and I would definitely recommend it. The only thing I wish is that the ram was user-upgradeable as it really makes the machine obsolete even more quickly than most computers already are. Damn companies and their planned obsolescence!
