I own both the Macbook Air and Macbook Pro Retina so I decided I should have a comparison for people looking to buy a new macbook to upgrade or their first macbook...Here are some reasons you should choose this version over the MBP Retina -a) 12 hour battery life is a lot. That is more than your iPad Air. The brightness on the Macbook Air is more than the brightness on your Macbook Pro.b) This is considerably cheaper than the Retina Macbook. While the screen is not as clear and distinct as the Retina Macbook's, I think it is sufficient to handle everything. You can say, if you have never seen the Retina Macbook Pro or used it, you will not notice the difference and will never feel anything is missingc) This is much lighter, that means you will grab at this more often than your Macbook Pro.d) The Hard disk drives both use Solid State Drives which means for 80% of daily tasks the speed are same. Owing to the fact that the Macbook Pro has a better processor, it is more capable of handling video editing taskse) The Keyboard on my macbook air I prefer over the keyboard on the Macbook Pro Retina. Don't get me wrong. Both are essentially spaced the same way but the surface where your palm rests is lighter/thinner and keystrokes seem more accurate on the macbook air.

I converted my religion and welcome you to do so.

I was in the market for a laptop after my old Dell kicked. The prime criteria for me was it had to be thin and light (preferably without a DVD drive; seriously, it's 2015!), be of really good built quality (my Dell had patches of paint coming off) and have great battery life (another source of frustration). With Windows 10 sounding exciting, I was looking for Windows laptops like the Dell XPS 13 or the Surface 3. Another option that struck me was the Lenovo U41, which sounded good in paper as a great budget option. Then came the thought: why not buy a MacBook and be done with it? I don't play games, ever; so definitely don't need some killer graphics. It has a benchmark battery life and is very much portable. Surface 3 is unfortunately not available in India, nor is XPS 13 without the touchscreen. I skipped the U41 and landed straight into OS X territory with my first Mac. This brings us to the actual review:BUILT: Unbelievably thin, unbelievably light. And I can't stress this point enough. Ever felt the need of casually tucking your laptop in a messenger bag and go grab a cup of coffee? This is a godsend for those purposes. The built is textbook Apple and I'll stop right there.DISPLAY: At 127 PPI it's nowhere near Retina territory, and frankly pixels are visible in small texts.But it's still miles better than the horrible 1366/768 resolution that every damn piece of Windows PCs pack in their gigantic 15.6" displays. Compare the font rendering of Windows 10 and OS X and you'll be taken aback at how horrible the Windows ones look. Viewing angles are pretty good considering its a TN panel and not IPS. Colors cover about 60% of the Adobe gamut so a tad dull. But so are most other displays at this range. I just wish they trim the bezels a little in the next generation, it's distractingly huge (but pretty).INPUT: The keyboard is charm to type. Keys have great travel, are well-separated and backlighting is good (although a little bluish for my taste). The trackpad is the greatest trackpad in the history of trackpads (barring the Force Touch trackpad found on the MBPs). It's very precise, almost like a capacitive touchscreen. Combine that with the cool (and lifesaver) multitouch gestures in OS X and you'll never buy a PC again. Webcam is okay (could use a higher res) but dynamic range is still better than most webcams I checked. I just wish they added one more USB port or an HDMI, but whatever.PERFORMANCE: I'll cut short here and just say it has never stuttered on me. The Broadwell Core i5 glides through all day-to-day tasks and is helped immensely by the PCIe SSD. Boot times are 8-10 seconds from cold and 1 second from sleep. RAM felt adequate too for my needs. The caveat I hope they improve is let go the 128GB as the base model, which is too low for todays' standards. If you want a better review, check out Anandtech or a host of other sites. The speakers are hidden beneath the hinge of the clamshell, just opposite to the air vents, and seems like a very clever design choice. The system never actually heated up, even during multi-core processing; and I never heard the fan running audibly. And, I may sound a little fanboyish here, but the speakers are one of the best speakers I've listened to on a laptop.BATTERY LIFE: Apple doesn't exaggerate when they say it gives 12h battery life. I have this weird situation now where my smartphone dies quicker while this laptop runs without cords like a monster. The Broadwell chip being a ULV processor with an extremely low TDP, has a major role in maintaining such battery backup. Even after watching a couple of movies and TV shows, the battery gave ~8h of juice, which is unbelievable. Oh, and battery drain during sleep is zilch, zero, nada.All in all, these is the best ultrabook out there right now (barring the XPS 13 in some cases) and if you want your $1000 to show off in a piece of glowing logo every time you're doing something, look no further. It has serious style, it has utmost purpose and it brilliantly delivers. That is one winning combo.

You will love it for the thin profile
By Akhilon Jul 1, 2015 12:00:00 AM
You will love it for the thin profile, to damn awesome. Compared to other laptops it weighs a lot less thus easy to carry around and the battery performance is awesome. It takes only about 3-4hrs to charge it 100% and you would get more than 10hrs battery :). If your coming from windows os you would take sometime to get along.Do google about the limitations of OS X, for example no native support for android phones, no ntfs write etc. The device is absolutely gorgeous and you would really love it :). Amazon packing and delivery is excellent !!

Best investment I have ever made
By Rohit iyeron Mar 23, 2016 12:00:00 AM
I am not a apple fan boy. I do not like the iPhones, But this device is miles different from its phone counterparts. While Android beats iPhone for me, Windows is nowhere close to macbook. This is not a bais, it is simply a fact that was visible, after I purchased a Macbook Air.Before I begin a product review, I would like to give a grand Kudos to Amazon.com and the Seller Silcare to deliver this product to me in 2 business days. Ordered on 14th of March, with the Macbook arriving at my place by 16th afternoon. That's blazing fast!!Coming to the review, I won't be placing any details of specs and performance, since most of these info are already available online and with other reviewers.My review would be focussed more on the User POV, ranging on the ecosystem of macbook and ups and downs of the OS, hardware and Apple community.Overall feelThe Macbook air simply feels premium. It feels like it was made with every single inch of precaution and well worked thought process. The design is simply stunning and feel of object seems perfect. The aluminium covering feels a little weak though, scratches will easily stick if not taken care. Hence, I would suggest you take a high quality cover for your macbook. I bought a black Rubberized case (Images attached for your reference). I also bought a micro sd to expand its memory. The issue over here is that the Adapter for the microSD is not a latch on adapter, instead a press fit one. This implies that, unlike most laptops, it does not have the usual press to attach and remove. You simply insert and it starts. This is good but it is too easy to remove the MicroSD without the system latching on to it. To add to the Woe, the Adapter sticks out, a lot I should say. (images attached for your reference).The 128GB Apple storage is blazing fast, topping at 1.32 GB/s! that is unbelievably fast. No issues at all from write or read speeds from this device.OSThe OS is an absolute breeze. If you are new to the ecosystem, don't sweat. It might take you about a week or so to get used to, but by then you would appreciate the common sense Apple has used while making this product.The trackpad gestures are amazing and convenient for internet browsing and photo editing situations like Photoshop, illustrator etc. while also being super duper accurate.The keyboard to me seems standard, but in a lot of ways using the keyboard requires some pre training, because the shortcuts are different from the windows ones and they can be hassle in case you are new. Yet, It is not rocket science. The best part is you can configure the keyboard to your liking and change whatever, so much as to assign new ones through 3rd party apps like Alfred.Speaking of Apps. Macbook has lots of important and useful apps to support you. SHAREit, facetime, iMessages, Pages, Keynote, Numbers, Alfred, Airdroid, etc, are few to speak of, having tremendous value to your Macbook. These apps feel rigid and well made. You also have your core apps like Adobe Suite, Office 2016, UTorrent, VLC etc. Adobe Suite is so much better in a Macbook than windows. It just feels perfect with the keyboard combinations and trackpad of this quality.Office 2016, though, is the biggest concern for the OSX; It simply does not work! Macbook itself has a good native applications for Word, Excel and powerpoint objects. But, in case you have too much liking of it, Office 2016 has huge concerns and I simply did not move forward with it. I came up with a different solution. (Will discuss later in this review).Lastly, If you have HDD with NTFS on it, you have another issue in your hand. NTFS HDDs can only be read, They cannot be written, unless a 3rd party app is purchased. Just letting you know before you buy this. (It isn't a big deal for me though).Flexibility,Here is where Macbook shines like a beacon. Macbook gives complete authority, to the user, to install Windows 10 in it, without any constraint or void of warranty. This is super cool! Apple themselves are endorsing this. Windows 10 is much much much better on a mac than on any other manufacturer and booting windows 10 is marvellously easy, with zero hassles.The trackpad and keyboard are great in windows 10. You can get all keyboard combination right off the bat, if you install the right software. I installed my office 2016 on this OS to avoid any particular issues of MacOSX. For me this is the ultimate peak of success of an ecosystem. To let other OS be installed in yours with absolute confidence. Kudos to Apple for this!Battery life is a mindblowing average of 7-10 hours for me. The lightweight of the Macbook is simply a plus to the this incredible feat achieved. The endorsed is 12hr. It does go upto 11.5 if I dont use WiFi. I get up 7 if do use WiFi. Upto 5 if I use Wifi and high brightness. For me these numbers are simply amazing. Having a laptop with battery of your phone is simply amazing.AccessoriesBecause the macbook is mostly standard, you can Tons of accessories for your macbook, from Sleeves to Skins. Cases to keyboard guards. Docks, Adapters, and even apple cut out Decals to stylize your macbook. No other laptop can achieve this.Final note, this laptop is meant for casual users. Don't even waste time on this machine, if gaming is on your mind. This device is too specific to wander to that universe.Macbook Air is simply fantastic piece of device. I simply cannot endorse and reinstate the fact that you would never ever regret buying this device. Never!Summary:Plusses:+ Device seems utter premium. Design is marvellous.+ Hardware is absolute solid; Keyboard, trackpad, camera are top notch.+ Battery life is top of the class at 7-11 hours daily.+ OSX is super easy to understand and has loads of useful elements created with a lot of common sense.+ SSD storage is crazy fast at 1.32GB/s read speed. Write speed tops at 0.8 GB/s. Enough IMO.+ You can boot up windows 10 without void of warranty. Apple completely endorses and accepts this.+ Apps like iMessages, Facetime, SHAREit are a great addition to the OS.+ Screen feels good and sharp.+ Lightweight. No concerns to put this in a bag.+ Standardization has ensured that Macbook get plenty of accessories to stylize and protect your macbook.+ Apple standard charger is lightweight and does not feel heavy.+ Fantastic attention to details by Apple.+ Speakers are quite loud. Very top notch performance there.Cons:- Office 2016 just does not work in Mac OSX. Not sure if Apple's or Microsoft's fault here. In any case Apple's own software is enough to do the work for the basic job.- Font size is too small but this isn't Apple specific problem. Not giving rights to change font size of text is a Apple specific problem.- Aluminum cover on the entire device seems to be too delicate. Need to put a cover to protect it. Lots of good options from Rubber to Wood available in the market.- 4 GB RAM seems slightly low. Needs more RAM to work multiple apps at the same time- microSD adapter sticks out a lot. You would need to buy one of those adapters which has minimal space to reduce this concern.- OS does have some nuisances which isn't visible in Windows. This can solved by third party apps.- Most third party apps are not free or even cheap.-No NTFS write for HDDs. No native support for Android phones.No device is perfect, but Macbook still achieves to be just close to perfection. For me, There is simply no device which can matches upto this beautiful, marvellous, mesmerizing piece of beauty. Used by mere mortals, Meant for Gods.

i have been using it for the last one month, and can definitely claims it to be the best one i have ever had. this is my first apple product, and i fell in love with it, the moment i unboxed it.looks: 5/5performance:5/5battery life:5/5value for money: 5/5user friendly : definitely yes, worth my 5 stars in every possible waysas rightly claimed startup time is only a few secs , courtesy the SDD flash storage, feature.warranty: need not worry if you are getting it from amazon because the products are genieune and you get a 1 yr manufacture warranty on registering your product in the apple india website.only cons or the thing which i didn't like is the only 128gb memory, but thats not a big deal if you're getting a external HDD.lastly to sum up, i really happy with my buy.definitely will recommend others for buying this, just that monitor the price for a week or so as the price fluctuates drastically in amazon.
