This is a good deal, probably one of the best prices you will see on this new laptop on Black Friday. The MacBook Air has been reviewed both here at Notebooks.com and our sister site Gottabemobile, receiving high praise. Below is our video review:

The MacBook Air has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, which may seem like a real speed bottleneck. However, the fast 128GB SSD more than makes up for it. Below is a demo of just how fast this computer boots:

The excellent display and keyboard make this a delight to type on, view video, and use for general tasks.

The MacBook Air is not perfect. The limitations of storage and lack of an optical drive will be a hindrance for some. However, the excellent battery life makes the MacBook Air the perfect travel companion.

    They sell based on the mentality that their products are worth paying for. Apple is all about image, nothing else. They don’t have to be the best company out there, they just have to make you think that. They don’t have to be the most innovative, just make it appear like they came up with it. They’re great at finding dying tech and resurrecting it and making it mainstream. They’re all show, little substance. But hey, it works for them – when was the last time you convinced someone that they needed a laptop without a keyboard?

      Sorry Mark. You’re wrong on all counts. Apple products are indeed superior, innovative and ,contrary to your unfounded belief, create new technology all others rush to emulate. If you cannot see this you are much less than passively observant. You’re certainly welcome to your opinions, but they’re just that, opinions based on obvious bias.
