Apple MacBook Air Review


It’s beautiful, it’s stunning, it’s thin, it’s like a supermodel. That is probably the best way to describe the MacBook Air to anyone asking. But should you be buying the thinnest MacBook on the planet? We’ve been living with the new model to find out.

That essentially just leaves the, you guessed it, iPhone and iPad without Flash support. No surprise really, but more fuel, perhaps, to incite the Apple hate mob to gather their flaming torches and pitchforks and storm Château Cupertino once more.
