  11.6 core i5 8GB RAM 128GM flash,  2013-07-14
By Erik

First of all the service from this store was very good. They did give me a call to confirm my order but I expected this because I was having it shipped to my work address. They do mention in the order process that you should add the address you are shipping to but in my AMEX account page there is no option to do that. In any case my mac arrived two days later via shoprunner.

All that being said I am very impressed with this machine. I went to the Apple store to look at both the 11.6 inch and 13 inch versions. The 13 inch form factor was just not that impressive and the keyboard definitely felt better on the 11.6 inch one. I think this is because the 11.6 keyboard is slightly more compact.

I am coming from a IBM T42 Thinkpad from 2005 so the first thing that impressed me off the bat was the screen. I typically do not like glossy screens but there is much less glare on the Air screen especially compared to the non retina macbook pro. In the Apple store the screen at full brightness was able to overcome the overhead lights.

I have typically considered myself a Windows person but given the recent direction they are taking with Windows 8 (which is complete garbage) I think that moving to a UNIX based OS is a good move. Notwithstanding I was basically ordered to get this to learn Ruby on Rails development. I think I will be happy with it as my main machine
