Overall: I purchased this gorgeous intersection of art and technology from Imagine Store in Gurgaon (Sorry Flipkart - next one's from you!) I bought this machine because I wasn't interested in spending my money on Windows 8 in 2013. As a 17-year Windows user, it was a HUGE move that I still wasn't sure of even as I was paying for it. But, once I started using it, magic started happening within 2 weeks... I just couldn't (and now just can't) go back to use my other Windows i7 laptop. The truth is that the amount of time it took for the Windows machine to fire up, connect to the Internet, and fire Photoshop, I've already worked on a couple of images on Photoshop on my gorgeous MacBook Air after waking it from sleep (because its Always ON!) It fires up in literally 2 seconds. Firefox, Photoshop, MS Office etc open in less than 2 seconds. And, Windows will perhaps NEVER be able to live up to Mac's gorgeous fonts... Other awesome wins on my MBA include iMessage (syncs seamlessly with iPhone and iPad); iMovies, QuickTime, FaceTime, iTunes, iWork - ALL FREE (included in purchase price). iTunes on my MBA 13" is the perfect companion for my iPhone, iPod and iPad. It takes away the need to backup those devices OTA on iCloud. About 6 months into using my MBA, I realised I haven't used my iPad for over a month. That's when I realised that my MBA's super-light weight, protability, 13" screen, back-lit keyboard, always-connected to Wi-Fi, and wake-from-rest in 2 seconds has kept me away from my iPad - to the extent that I've now bequeathed it to my son - and haven't missed a heartbeat... And, the most important feature I've kept for last: Battery Backup between 10 - 12 hours without Photoshop, iMovies etc... and between 8 - 10 hours with using these hugely resource intensive softwares. All in all... The BEST laptop money can buy... Beats other copy-cat me-toos by Dell, HP, Sony et al hollow...
