  Great Performance in a Svelte Form Factor,  2012-07-17
By Tim Kridel

This is my third Mac but first MacBook. Two of my main concerns were heat and the fans. After a couple of weeks of ownership, neither is a problem. In fact, I have yet to hear the fans, and the underside barely gets warm.

Thanks to the SSD, this Air is noticeably faster than my 2008 iMAC. It's literally seconds to resume from sleep, and a boot-up takes less than 15 seconds. Word 2008 and Outlook 2011 launch in seconds.

The toughest decision was deciding whether to upgrade the RAM. I went with 8 GB because I keep my machines for a long time -- typically at least five years -- so I've got the headroom to handle a larger OS and larger programs. I typically run Word, Safari, Outlook and iTunes simultaneously, and there's zero lag.

I don't miss the optical drive. When I installed Office, it was pretty straightforward to use my iMac's drive.

I have no experience with Retina displays, so I can't compare the MBA's in that regard. It's sharp enough and rich enough for my needs.

Bottom line: The MBA provides a great combination of performance, style and value.
