After doing some research on the 2011 Macbook Air 13", I made a purchase about a week ago. My only use for it is to browse the web and a couple softwares such as Microsoft Office 2011 and iWork 2009. Outside of school, I don't use this as much because I also have a PC laptop. It has a nice sex appeal rather than the bulky Macbook Pro in my opinion. Also it is very slim and thin that way I can slip it right into into my sleeve then right into my backpack. I love the 13" screen because it isn't too small or too big. I also had the latest Macbook Pro and the start up was a lot slower than the Macbook Air. Therefore, my favorite thing about this new Macbook Air is that it starts up and shuts down in a heart beat. This is my first time owning a Mac every and it does take sometime to get used to the controls and all that. I have only used the web and Microsoft Office/iWork so I don't real know much else about the Mac. Overall, I love Apple and I don't have anything towards a Window PC but i'd prefer an Apple any day. Anyways, I just thought i'd share my thoughts about the MBA 2011 13".
