Stephen Wildstrom of BusinessWeek recently talked about his experiences with the MacBook Air. He mentioned all the positive traits of the MacBook Air were better than expected, but the negative traits were worse than expected. This is because some people need to the added benefit of an ethernet cord for example.

He mentioned that the MacBook Air performed quite well on plane trips where the tray allowed for the MacBook Air extend with room to spare. A gripe was that it did not include a wired option which some hotels only allow. It's hard to get around it. The lack of removable battery did not bother Stephen very much so that's a good sign.


AppleInsider has finally gotten their hands on the MacBook Air and have completed a 5 page review of the MacBook Air. They concluded that the MacBook Air in very good. They noticed quite a few positive traits and only a few obvious negative traits.

The positive traits included the highly mobile light and thing design. They also mentioned it was sexy and attention getting. Apple really has put hardware engineering to a new level with the MacBook Air. The cons included obvious ones like no wired lan and firewire or removable battery. Overall, the quality engineering is making them overlook the drawbacks.
