As a marketing guy, such a light weight yet powerful , has turned out to be a wise decision to go for this. Vgood over phone apple support. I recently shelled out another 13 k plus for 2 yr additional warranty , which should help cover all the expense which may occur if any thing goes faulty...which it seems unlikely for its solid make . MS Office is installed , which simplified my work. Finally you can see many heads turn towards you, as this works out to be an yard stick:))
not even able to get the screen size by ur description provided. Please improve the content. I tried to look for Mac book Air, but am not able to decide upon the model using this site. Just because the content are very limited and dont even cover the minimum required info. I would call it as jsu the few initial details are copied from the suppliers website.
It was dream to own this beauty. Bought it on the Big Billion day and got it for around 43k after giving away my old HP laptop. I got 5k for the old laptop. It is working superb without any problem. You should go for it :)
Kudos to Flipkart for its sending this charm my way with such a sweet deal. I almost missed it on the Billion Day sale but Flipkart did the unthinkable and sent it finally after cancelling the order initially. They asked for a weeks delay but ultimately sent it without delay. The packaging was very reliable as always. I paid just 49,990/- :-D I was wanting to buy the bigger retina screen MacBook with i7 and all the chops but was hesitating due to the steep price (what else? :-p) I gave in to this deal just because it was so nice: almost 25% on the best market price on a hot-selling Apple product!! I don't regret buying this fairy a bit. In fact I am writing this review using it :-) This is my first Mac, so still a student, but I promise I won't take long before moving to the command-line, refreshing my long-forgotten Unix (in the Linux world). My biggest fear was with the screen compared to the Retina displays on the one I wanted to buy, but I am not able to spot the difference till now. In fact, I am finding the smaller screen very sufficient. This is a big surprise to me too as I am currently using a 14" laptop running Linux but find it lacking. The colours are sharp, resolution sufficient. The best part is the lightness and slimness when I hold it in my hand!! The battery is great too, running more than the advertised 9 hours on all occasions till now. The rest is of course as expected from any Apple product, awesome. Thank you Flipkart for such a sweet deal :-D
1. Nice buy at 45k. 2. Reminds me of the apple iPad i used to own earlier. 3. Doesn't heat up at all. 4. Used it for almost 5 hours straight and it works flawleslly. 5. My wife is jealous that i got this product and not concentrating on her as of now ;) :P
I just love my MacBook Air. Nothing Can be compared to the happiness of owing a Mac. I am writing this review within an hour of owing it. If you want to experience something great, undoubtedly out of this world, go get your self a Mac. This is my only Recommendation to all the prospective buyers out there. LOVE YOU APPLE
I'm writing this review on my new MacBook Air after a good 4 days of use. And I have to say, it feels awesome. The kind of ergonomic finish you get on this 52k laptop may never be seen on even 70k laptops of other brands. The aluminium unibody is light and cold, believe me when I say it but the whole body is a heatsink! And the keyboard and trackpad, well there are unmatched. It has a huge trackpad with a touch as smooth and responsive as that of an iPhone. The backlit keyboard is just a beauty to behold. And the whole MacBook is probably slimmer than your phone! :) Moving on to the specs, they're NOT AT ALL BAD. It runs a Dual Core Hyperthreaded i5 so you get ~Quad Core performance. But the main turnoff is that 4 GB RAM may not be enough for everyone but it was not and option although in so many other laptops you get the same amount of RAM. SSD is mind-blowing and as soon as you turn it on for the first time, you'll realise that pretty quickly and never go back to HDD again. The camera and internal microphone will satisfy all your basic needs well. The small display requires getting a little used to. I has a 15.6 inch toshiba before and it seems like a giant to me now. So if your work require you to have some screen space(like professional graphic designing, video editing etc), do yourself a favour and get the 13 inch Air or if you're cheap and relatively not that rich like me, get the 11 inch, get used to full screen apps and never go back! The small display has the same resolution you see on so many 50k 15 inch laptops so you get a high ppi of 143! ;) Now moving on the OS, IT'S AWESOME!!! OS X was the main reason I got a Mac in the first place, tried installing it on my previous laptop but it never felt right. The trackpad gestures are so convenient and it's so fluid and smooth. Flipkart thank for the 12 hr delivery! I could never be this happy with any purchase!
At this price this is a steal ... I have a 13 inch MacBook Air and it is fantastic....sure that 11' is the same goodness at a great price
I don't think I need to describe the MacBook Air (MBA) at this point in time. Why? For a very simple reason that those who are considering buying an MBA already know a lot about it. If you have NEVER used any other notebook then, I feel, you will not really appreciate how well the MBA is designed and built. But, if you have used other notebooks, then within moments of opening the MBA box, you will realize that this is a piece of art, nothing less, nothing more. In fact, even the box looks like a piece of art. Everything feels "almost" perfect. At first, my heart sank when I saw a chiclet keyboard. I hate chicklet keyboards. But, the keyboard on an MBA is so FANTASTICALLY different compared to all the chiclet keyboards from other PC manufacturers that it is inexplicable. You have to experience it to believe it. The MBA chiclet keyboard is without doubt the best typing instrument. Fantastic! Using this MBA suddenly made me realize how "way back in time" we are in the Linux-on-desktop (er, Ubuntu) world. And let's not even talk about Windows 8. Mac OS X made me realize how PATHETIC Windows 8.1 is/has-become. Just my thought, so don't flame me if you love Windows 8. All I can say is: Thanks Jonny Ive. Thanks Tim Cook. Thanks (late) Steve Jobs. And Thanks to the entire Apple team for producing such a masterpiece. Only major con I can think of is that this is mind-blowingly costly! Let me say this openly: if you are looking for "value for money" notebook then this is NOT the notebook you should buy. Within this price range you can easily get a (quad-core) Core i7 with (minimum) 8GB of RAM and maybe a tera-byte of HDD. You might even find "full-hd" display, if you search the nooks-n-crannies of the web. But, if you want an MBA, then there's only one! And this is it! :) Minor cons I can think of: #1: Apple's keyboard is all messed up! They have 4 different meta keys that don't function like the "Control, Alt, Windows and Windows-Options" keys on a regular PC keyboard. With reference to these meta-keys, Microsoft and the PC world win ... clearly! In the Apple case, there seems to be a lot of confusion between "Control and Command/Apple" keys. As an example: To go to the start of a line in a terminal you have to use Control-A, but, select-All is with Command/Apple-key A. In fact, the "control" key in Apple is practically useless if you are not a terminal person. This keys hullabaloo and weirdness is going to take some time getting used to. #2: The iCloud integration seems a bit too tight in this version of OS X (10.9.2 as it came on the MBA and 10.9.4, after a 1GB update from Apple). And if you get the settings wrong, then iCloud will pester you to enter your credit card info. I think I had to switch off my screen saver and some other things to fix that. Again, weird!! #3: All the hand-waving you can do on the MBA trackpad is "kinda" crazy! :) So, I just picked up Dell mouse and I am using that with the MBA. Thankfully, the MBA recognizes that mouse and allows me to use both the right and left keys. Also, the MBA system preferences has the option to switch off the internal trackpad when an external mouse is connected, so that makes life a little simpler. BTW, for those who may NOT be aware of it, this is the early-2014 model even though Flipkart is not saying that on their MBA page. That 711 indiciates this is a 11" MBA. And the trailing "/B" indicates it is an early 2014 model. 2013 models have a trailing "/A". The apple support page confirmed this. About Flipkart service: got it in a day! :) In conclusion: I am almost a "convert" to the "Apple" religion.
First up, hats off to Flipkart's service. Getting the product at the deal price was something special. And to top it, the product was delivered within 12 hours! Owning a macbook air has been a long time dream, and am thoroughly enjoying living it!
