    Could someone post a screenshot of their 11-inch MacBook, with the macrumors page open for example, and/or a news website?

    I just want to check that it won't be too small for me.

    Thanks a lot!

    Just for the sake of comparison, here are the same 5 screenshots from a 2010 13" MBA.

    Do you mind to put the dock at the bottom with the smallest size dock for the 11?

    Thanks :)

    Sorry but no! Somebody else can post screenshots showing the dock at the bottom if they want but I refuse. You shouldn't consider keeping your dock at the bottom of the 11" MBA as you'll lose some very valuable vertical space. If you want to get some idea of what it will look like, just look at my screenshots and subtract a few lines of text from what you see and that is pretty much what it would look like to unnecessarily keep your dock at the bottom of the screen.

    Just keep in mind that these screenshots only show you how much you can fit on the 11" resolution; it doesn't give you any indication on how it actually looks when you're viewing 1366 by 768 pixels in an 11" screen.

    The dock should really go on the left or right to maximise the space as the other poster said.

    It's maybe time to go to a store if you want to check all the possible configurations!

    I have my dock at the bottom and have it hide. I'm happy with this. I tried the dock along the left and really did not like it there.

    So you have all three machines, 11 & 13" MBA and a 13" MBP?

    Cool, which one is your favorite?

    Yeah. I've done the auto hide on the bottom before. It's a pretty good config to use. Alternatively you can manually hide and show with Command+Option+D.

    +1. It's much neater and efficient.

    Having to show the dock first before you can see what's open or where to drag a file isn't efficient.

    That's why I use Expose. Dock takes too much screen estate for a laptop user.

    Keep in mind you'll be viewing these screenshots in relative size to your current display's pixels per inch - the 11" MacBook Air has the highest PPI of all Mac displays, making everything appear smaller but sharper. I personally have no problem using the 11" display for hours.

    Thanks for the screenshots. They're awesome. Very helpful for someone to help decide on regarding the screen.

    I have a 13" MBP and can't decide between the 11 and 13 MBA. I had an 11 for 2 weeks. Loved the size and power of the machine. Hard to believe such a tiny machine could work so well. But I decided I couldn't afford to have to conform to the limited screen size as my only computer. I have a 13 on order. But I'm already missing the portability of the 11. I realize that I was using it all the time, in many situations I wouldn't consider using the 13.
    I have a 28" external monitor so I'm not limited to always using the screen on the 11.

    Another two.

    I don't personally feel I need Safari maximised at all, unlike most of the above posts. A too-wide screen isn't good for reading lines of text on websites.
