I was really hesitant at first buying a MacBook on eBay. Especially one that claims to be unopened NIB etc. but I got the package and it was wrapped with care, and the box still had it’s plastic on it! Great value and excellent customer service! So far so good with the laptop! Thanks !
Best value for money, not just from apple, but compared to any existing laptop out there. Light, amazing battery life, great durability and impressive performance! long version: I've been using the Air series for the past 6 years (so has my wife) and i have to say that there are only words of praise! It is extremely reliable, very good battery and very lightweight. I use it mainly for business which involves a lot of coding, but i often use image and video editors and it never felt lagging. And this is while having on average 60 browser tabs opened almost constantly! I recommend you to buy it if you're a student, freelancer, traveling or moving around a lot. Here are some useful tips that might save you plenty of headache: - the retail price is around 1000$ and depending on the model goes higher. But from my experience, you should be able to get a deal of 750$ at least once in 2 months, so don't rush throwing away the cash! - pay attention to sweaty palms (they may leave a permanent whitish stain), wearing metal armbands/watches and cufflinks (may scratch the thin side). - the most fragile element of all is the power cord. Make sure you don't wrap the cord very tightly when transporting it; - the biggest enemy of the battery seems to be Chrome. I can normally use it with 60 tabs for 4-5 hours, but i heard others getting way more time if using safari, so keep that in mind.
I am really impressed on how good this machine performs. Had a windows laptop before with a I7 quad core processor and this MacBook Air just destroys my old laptop. It is thin and portable. Highly recommended.
I purchased this MacBook for my special needs sister. I wanted something that was easy to use but lightweight. I have a larger MacBook so I knew she would be to use this without any problems. This MacBook is great. The only problem I had setting it up was she didn't have an apple account. Once I set that up, setting the MacBook up was a breeze. I purchased this on sale in November and got a great deal, but it is a great deal at regular price. It easily syncs with other devices, including her Ipod. The product arrived quickly and in excellent condition. Very happy with the purchase.
After 9yrs with my 1st MacBook, it was time for an upgrade. This MacBook Air did not disappoint. Fast and works flawlessly. My only minor gripe would be that the metal edges of the laptop's body is a bit sharp and tends to dig into the skin. An after market plastic case remedied the issue, but for the price of these laptops, Apple should smooth out the edges. With that said, I absolutely love this laptop, and hopes it holds out just as long as my first one.
