    Would love a new macbook air someday. However the words thin but flimsy come to mind.

    Can anyone who has bought one confirm, how sturdy is it? Or does it feel fragile?

    All we have is the same reviews you've probably read online. The physical units aren't in stores yet so most of us have not yet seen them in person.

    I don't think any regular consumers have received theirs yet. It seems like most people were quoted ship dates between Feb 6 and Feb 12 depending on when they placed their order and configuration.

    I read they gave it the flex test, and it did not flex the screen at all ;)

    Ok, fair enough. Let me know as soon as you guys get them.

    i think it's pretty sturdy
    casue theres a ton of ppl at macworld that were lifting these units opening and closing
    and as far as i know none of them commented about if it's fragile or not
    same goes for the reviews

    so i'm guessing it has to be pretty sturdy at least if noone has been commenting about it being fragile

    I was at Macworld last week and I played with it for quite a while. The Air is quite sturdy. I was expecting a flimsy notebook but the aluminum was quite strong. The lid containing the LCD and the whole body was quite strong. This one's a hit, at least for me.

    This is also my concern too. But I am looking forward to getting it!

    I love how when that guy is flexing the screen someone elses hands are close by. In the end they look like they make him stop bending it, with a hand wave and an awkward giggle :D

    Was pretty impressive though, much better then i'd have thought.
