Second purchase from Tek. First was an iPad. Both items in great shape and work fine. Airbook hard to tell from new. Why pay twice or 3 times as much?!
Bad: Striped screws on laptop with no hard disk is a total nightmare. Had to use all sorts of methods and eventually stab a knife to get the screws off. Good: Apart from the striped screws, which may be a major issue if you do not succeed in getting the bottom plate off, the machine is in decent shape no battery issues or otherwise. Very minimal cosmetic wear and tear.
I wanted to buy a lightweight, yet powerful laptop for college and was considering buying a Windows 8 machine until I found this laptop on eBay. It is the absolute perfect weight and has that sophisticated style that any college student can appreciate. The i5 processor completes any task given to it with ease. I enjoy mostly everything about the laptop with the minor exceptions being the battery life and lack of a higher resolution display. At a rated 7 hours it is nothing to sneeze at, but watching videos and extensive use will shorten the overall time. I know the latest generation Intel chips have solved this problem and it is not a fault of the machine itself. The screen is bright and vivid, although recent full HD, 4K, even Apple's own Retina display best this unit's 1440 x 900 resolution. Compared to other laptops, this wins hands down! The PC's I considered had sturdy builds, but the reputation that Windows 8 has and Apple's ability to build great laptops sealed the deal. With the few minor gripes I have, emphasis on minor, this is a great overall laptop and one that I would recommend to anyone. Apple built a workhorse of a laptop and one that will be able to take whatever the average user will throw at it.
I was a Macbook Pro user until I found this little gem. Machine is a refurbished unit but looks and performs like new with Mojave OS. Wasn't sure about the 4 GB Ram but it works extremely well and does everything asked of it. Lightweight design makes it a lot easier to take anywhere. Downside is the upgradeability isn't as quick and easy as the old Macbook Pro. Memory is soldered into the motherboard.
After being a loyal MacBook Pro fan, I have finally switched over to the MacBook Air. The newest generation MacBook Air packs a powerful i5/i7 that easily outperforms my 2009 2.66Ghz Intel Dual Core Macbook Pro. The battery life is amazing, I'm able to get very close to what Apple has quoted, and having a Solid State Drive, the battery can stay charged for literally weeks when in sleep mode, forget about turning this laptop off! The boot times are phenomenal, and will surpass any Macbook with a traditional HDD. I love how portable this laptop is, its extremely lightweight and much more bag friendly than my 15.4" MacBook Pro. This laptop is going to be more than perfect for you if you like to browse the web, watch videos, edit documents, or edit pictures. Now, if your needing more power for gaming or memory intensive programs such as Adobe Illustrator, I would suggest looking into a MacBook. But, for most users, I believe this laptop will more than fit the everyday users needs. I'm confident that this laptop will stay modern and compatible with all Apple software for another 4 or 5 years, and I'm even more confident that this laptop will hold its value for several years, I believe that the Intel i5/i7 processors will be here for awhile, and over the next few years, solid state drives are going to grow even more popular.
