Cold, not a lenovo/dell/acer

Shut up MattLake you have just mentioned the three worst makes of laptops hater!

Cold, not a lenovo/dell/acer



Heat because it's not those mediocre brands

I used to slate macbooks like nobody else until I actually bought one.

Wouldn't turn back because they just work, no stupid bugs or crashes, optimised perfectly and run amazingly without needing crappy pc slowing virus protection. Plus the build quality / design is second to none.

The screen and design alone make these worth is so I couldnt care less if you are running an i7 with the best graphics card out, you have a big chunk of plastic infront of you and I can guarantee no other laptop screen looks as good as apple retina. And on top of that they have incredible customer support and care so if anything is to go wrong you have the peace of mind that you are covered.

Yes same here I went mac last October after 20 years of windoze. Great machines and great support and they just work. I have people asking me how to fix pcs all the time and I now reply get a mac they just simplify life and allow you to get on with your work increasing your productivity and that is why they cost a premium price.

Unfortunately a lot of people on here know the price of everything and the value of nothing...

Regarding the screen, maybe you didn't notice that it is a macbook air 13" that has been posted and not the mbpr. You do know that the Air has one of the poorest screens of the ultrabooks that came out in 2013. They use a TN panel that runs at 1440x900 that was introduced around 6 years ago. The panel and it's low resolution is what enables it to get the battery life that it does. A lot of the competitors in this segment were using 1080p or greater and also IPS panels, the same sort of screen used in the much more expensive mbpr. I was going to buy this on release but was disappointed that they kept the same screen.

Can you see everything clearly? Yes.

Not all of us spend our time zooming in on laptops to see how many pixels we can see. This obsession with resolution is such a fad. I'm using a laptop (MacBook) that was made in 2009 and I've not once gone "oh, man, I'm totally missing out on some shades of purple; I better upgrade this perfectly-functioning computer immediately".

Obviously that's just my opinion

Hot. As the saying goes... once you go mac, you never go back!

I wouldn't rave about Apple customer support. My daughter has an iPhone 5 with the faulty power switch, I took it in to the nearest Apple store, and despite the serial number automatically qualifying for the repair, it took 45 minutes to get the repair processed/authorised. Apple know it is broken, I know it is broken, so just book it in, and fix it. Should take no more than 5 minutes.

Yep I went in November 2013, there is no better time to own a mac pro retina.

Build quality, screen & OS is second to none, pure quality!

I on the other hand had a problem with a power supply, went into the Apple store and got given a replacement within five minutes.

Their online booking system for appointments is total crap though as there are almost never any free slots.

Prices may drop further if Apple introduces the 12" Macbook Air Retina . Could be launched at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference on June 2.
Edited by: "robdougall" 25th May 2014

Yeah I worked with premium Dells (XPS, Latitude) for around ten years, and then switched to MacBook Air because I needed to use the Thunderbolt port for recording HD video at events.

Undoubtedly a premium quality product in terms of build materials, design etc. Initially I was frustrated with OSX, but soon got used to it and I bought Parallels and can run Windows simultaneously with OSX if I need to. But funnily enough it's the little things that I like about it the most. For example, the trackpad is easily the best designed, most intuitive trackpad I've ever used. Nothing I've used on Windows before or since gets close and it's a crucial part of the design - it's the thing you interact with the most. That has value to me.

I don't need Thunderbolt any more, so I'm thinking of selling the MBA (because its Achilles Heel is its screen - it's a great TN screen, but it's still TN in a market sector that demands a minimum of 1080p IPS) and I'm happy to consider Windows machines because 8.1 looks pretty damn good to me, but a few things spring to mind:

* Cheap Windows machines are a lot cheaper, but quality Windows machines (Dell XPS 13 for example) built to compete with Apple products are not actually *that* much cheaper, and can still be 2x the cost of a cheapo Ultrabook that has "the same spec" as the Macbook Air
* The main advantage I see with Windows ultrabooks is support for standard SSDs, so you can upgrade cheaply in most cases but the days of upgrading CPU and RAM are long gone
* Resale value of Apple kit is in a different league to Windows. When it comes to upgrading/selling you get more money back

Tried taking a Samsung / Dell / Microsoft product back to one of their shops for support recently? If it takes an hour that's better than being without your phone for nearly a week due to post and waiting for repair...

You're only getting back the extra money you paid upfront! Think about it...

The air is an extremely thin laptop, so it is not just about battery life when it comes to the screen, compared to my MBP, my 11" MBA has I would say, about 80% of the screen quality, but in comparison my MBP has a darn good screen, better than most laptops out there, and it has been this good since I bought it, about 2 years ago.

Unfortunately there has to be some trade off for the size and portability of things, and a TN Panel is not really one that bothers me, the quality is still very high, and class leading in some cases.

Great find, My sister will be happy as she after one of these.

Likewise, get a quality laptop and install Ubuntu 14 LTS on it and don't tinker with it then you will have a very stable system that just works.
