Every Apple launch is something of an event and it's no different with the MacBook Air, as this is the thinnest notebook in the world. You have to admire Apple's enthusiasm and the MacBook Air is a great design statement but as a practical machine it...

Super slim, cutting-edge technology

Sealed battery, limited connectivity

You have to admire Apple's enthusiasm and the MacBook Air is a great design statement but as a practical machine it simply doesn't match anything released by Sony.

Apple MacBook Air 2008 review

 

It's thin. It's fast. It's lovely. But is it really better than spending less money on a more powerful MacBook Pro or a PC?

Beautiful, built to last and blisteringly fast, but too expensive considering the lack of connections and its rivals' ever-growing features lists

Apple MacBook Air 1.6GHz review

 

An instant design classic that wins us over despite its hardware omissions

Ultra-light chassis ; Intelligent, enlarged scrollpad ; Incredible screen

No optical drive ; Poor battery life ; No Ethernet connection

Despite the lack of hardware features, the MacBook Air is a wonderful Mac that will turn heads wherever it goes

Apple MacBook Air, 1.8GHz & 64GB SSD review

 

Our initial review of the MacBook Air was based on its stock £1,199 configuration, which features a 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 80GB of storage provided by a 1.8in traditional hard drive.

The public reaction to the MacBook Air has been fascinating. Our original conclusion could probably be boiled down to “it's good for people it's good for, and not for people it's not” – this appeared to be a Rorschach test for readers, since we've...

Apple MacBook Air review

 

There was no mention of Steve Jobs' favourite "one more thing" keynote sign-off at Macworld Expo in January, but the biggest product launch at the annual Mac event could still have a major impact on the Windows-based laptop market - the Apple MacBook Air.

The story of the MacBook Air is a story about compromise, the decision about whether the MacBook Air is a product worth having can be answered by one question: How much are you willing to compromise? Judged merely on the cold technological...

Apple MacBook Air

 

As stylish a notebook as you could hope for, but in its quest for thinness, Apple has sacrificed a lot. It's lovely to use in many respects but one can't help feeling that the Air is a triumph of style over practicality.

Apple MacBook Air

 

The MacBook Air has arrived, but can Apple's razor-thin ultraportable live up to the hype?

Before you've even laid eyes on the MacBook Air, the very process of extricating it from its packaging frustrates and excites in a way that few technology purchases can. In typical Apple fashion, every detail has been considered, right down to stage...
