Overall: I didn't buy the laptop from Flipkart but I wanted to share my reviews on the popular shopping website for the potential buyers. I have been using Windows Based PCs and laptops for over 8 years and recently I switched to Apple Macbook Air 13 inch 2013 model. I am giving my views after feeling what I gained and lost after switching to Apple Operating system in general and to a Macbook Air in particular. Pros: 1. Best in the class build quality. This product screams selection of premium quality of build materials. 2.Best in class looks. That in fact, makes you care for the Macbook a bit more carefully. 3. Best Operating system i.e. - fluid, graphically pleasing, most secured (No need of security softwares) and more intelligently built with neat features to get your daily tasks done with utmost ease. 4. Best selection of apps/softwares - Though the variety of apps available for Mac isnt great but these days many softwares are coming which can make windows .exe programmes run in Mac very easily. 5. Best backlight keyboard - My typing was never so fast and easy. 6. Screen - For months I did comparison between Macbook air and Macbook Pro's Screen and never ever I noticed that the Macbook Air screen is not up to the mark. Its a very good 13.3 inches screen, no reflection, accurate colors. In stores where they compare non retina with a retina display, they always set the brightness highest on both the models. I agree that max. brightness of Macbook Pro exceeds Macbook Air's but in real life you wont need that high level of brightness. The amount of brightness required to see crystal clear details is available on both Air ad Pro models. This was the most nagging question for me so had to go in a bit of detail. 7. Magic Trackpad - So smooth and accurate with the gestures that using the trackpad mouse was never so easy and fun. 8. Battery Life - This does last for more than 10 hours on a moderate to heavy usage. I don't need to carry my charger anymore for weekend office trips. Cons 1. Screen Size - It in not a big issue if you are not into video editing, website designing, etc. For me it was not an issue as soon as I got used to the 13.3 inch screen. But I would love to see 15 inch Macbook Air in the future. Retina display is not a necessity. 2. Costly Accessories - Like the magic mouse, Apple superdrive, etc. 3. Lack of HDMI output - But this can be overcome to thunderbolt to HDMI convertor. 4. Only 2 USB 3.0 ports - But that can be overcome by buying a good USB hub. Overall, coming from a Windows PC to Apple Macbook Air was a very pleasant and easy transition and yes as they always said, once you start using Apple Macbook you would never want to go back to Windows. That is so true. Enjoy all the old and new Macbook owners and potential buyers don't hesitate just go for it. Its worth every penny.
