The current best laptop from Apple is 11-inch MacBook Air

With today’s announcement of new MacBook Air machines, this article couldn’t be more timely about the current best laptop from Apple.

If you’re not familiar with the announcement, Apple has killed off its white MacBook and has made its new entry level laptop the MacBook Air priced at $999. Granted, it’s a solid laptop for the price, we wouldn’t call it entry level, especially since its closest competition is priced at less than $500.

As for why we think 11-inch MacBook Air is the best laptop ever, there are a lot of reasons.

Apple 11-inch MacBook AirAt the outset, when we saw the 11-inch MacBook Air from Apple, it looked more of a toy than a real computer machine. All changed when we saw people, not only using the laptop for web design & development, but also using it to make Skype calls, while taking skytrain to work. It can also do some serious work. For example, edit your videos or movie clips in iMovie, use it with SoundCloud to edit your music, or frequently hook it up to your 32-inch HP monitor for some intense computing.

The best thing about this laptop is its battery life and portability. A simple hook to power for 30 minutes will get you 3 hours of charge plus laptop normally lasts more than 5 hours on a single charge.

We really can’t say enough bad things about this Apple laptop. Most of the negatives that we expected were swiftly turned to positives either by using it for sometime or by discovering some way around. For example, if the screen size seems too undersized, just change the screen resolution of the laptop or enlarge the font. It seems pretty evident, but you’d be amazed how many users don’t realize it’s just few clicks away.

If you are in the computer market for a new and best laptop, take a close look at the Apple’s 11-inch MacBook Air. It combines ease of use, great battery life, price, portability and delivers a solid product for the money spent.

The upgrade which was announced earlier today gives you more disk storage, a faster processor, a backlit keyboard, and a lot more, all in the same form and not to mention that if 11-inch is too small for you, the 13-inch MacBook Air is just one click away.

Are you already using 11-inch MacBook Air or about to buy a new one? Please feel free to share your thoughts with us..

  • Yes mate 🙂 I appreciate that Mac OS X does not yet support trim, but does the original SSD support it? I expect to run Fedora on a Macbook Air 11.
