We bought this product because we needed to be ready with a hot spare computer when the old PC (laptop) dies. We live close to the sea and everything electronic is subject to rust and may become trash with no warning.

Our IT guy recommended an apple because many of the components are alloy so they can handle our environment, plus we could segment the drive and use parallels to run windows for those programs we are stuck with.

Great suggestion. Despite its age (mid 2010) the machine cleaned up nicely and is a pleasure to use. We have worked in the PC/DOS/Windows world since Windows 3.0 days so we thought the transition to appleworld would be a struggle - not really.

The unit is tiny, but workable, with a smallish hard drive. This limitation is not that much of a deal because many things these days are stored in the cloud or some variant of it. Using gmail, dropbox and having important data like purchases and sales in Ebay we don't have to store them. Hence our data storage requirement is fairly modest.

One bugbear - battery life - I am used to an ipad which seems to last forever without getting low. The Macbook is another matter. However, I am putting up with it until it becomes annoying and I will buy a replacement. What would you expect from a 3 1/2 year old battery? Completely as expected. For the time being I am carrying the charger and adapter with me when travelling - while the device is tiny - the bulk of the cord etc I under-estimated - not as neat as having a little iphone cord in your pocket to recharge the ipad.

One benefit I have not mentioned is viruses - nothing seems to be attacking us - more than I can say for the PC. Not sure how long that situation will continue, but no complaints so far.

I did have reservations in buying a second hand machine but thsi was a good experience that I have no regrets about.

Great laptop for students, however those wanting a lot of memory space will either need an external hard drive or only use this as a secondary computer. It's performance is great and it is very quick.

Review For: Apple MacBook Air 11.6" Laptop - MC505X/A (October, 2010)
I was hesitant to purchase a macbook air because i hadn't heard alot about the product or know many people who have it, im telling you though, once you go mac you never go back! I am loving the efficiency of this little laptop and how user-friendly it is. I purchased office for mac but i don't think the apple software would have been too hard to get used to. I am extremely happy with my purchase and highly recommend this machine to anyone. I certainly won't be bothering to use the old sony vaio or personal windows pc ever again. its so fast and the graphics is excellent! A+++++++
