    I am not sure why, but my Air base model seems to disappoint.

    1. I've had a flickering screen more than 3 times now. It is something I've never experienced in any computer I've ever had.

    2. Almost every time I wake up the computer from an overnight sleep, I have to restart because it simply doesn't respond. And even if it did, I'd have to wait at least 15 to 30 seconds for it to respond.

    That's a little disappointing so I've contacted the Apple store and decided to get the refurb ultimate. I hope I'm not disappointed with that one too.

    Regarding the MBA not responding after sleep happens to me too sometimes. But definitely not every night.

    Likewise, surely faulty, you've done the best thing to return.

    Yes, defect for sure. Air's don't run like that!

    My base 11 runs smooth as butter. You got a lemon son!

    Same here...My base 11'' is the best Mac I've owned so far...everyone saying you need 4GB is just crazy! I've opened tons of apps, and no problems or errors!
