  • Abstract:  Product round-up It took a little while for the production lines to get going, but the first few months of 2012 have seen super-slim Ultrabooks completely outnumbering every other type of desktop or laptop PC coming our way. Intel’s tight definition o...

  • The 11in MacBook Air is exactly the same price as Asus' 11in contender, although with only half the RAM and SSD space. But what it lacks in these respects it makes up for in build quality – especially when it comes to the screen – and for giving you th...

  • Beautiful, sturdy, powerful, light, great battery
  • 11-inch is a little too small, no SD card slot, limited ports, gestures can be irksome, OS X isn't as perfect as Apple thinks
  • You don't have to love, or even like, Apple to see that this is one of the nicest laptops ever made. As a tool to work or entertain yourself we've yet to see a computer balance power and portability as well as the Air does. Gone are the days of the und...

  • Since the company has discontinued its popular white MacBook, the Apple MacBook Air 11in (Mid-2011) now stands alone as the most affordable Mac portable. At £849, you get 2GB memory and 64GB of solid-state drive; another £150 doubles both those specs t...

  • The MacBook Air 11.6-inch 2011 still offers a very good performance to size ratio. This ultraportable laptop continues to get more powerful but Apple hasn't redesigned the cooling system to cope with this. Plus, the connectivity is still just as lite....

  • The 11in MacBook Air is undeniably lovely thanks to its sleek and sturdy build, comfortable keyboard and multitouch touchpad. It's not worth buying the cheapest version which is too underpowered, but we're not wholly convinced by the priciest version o...
