Macbook Air: Hands-on Review of New 11-inch Model

By Updated on

We have some good news for those of you planning to pick up the recently announced new 11-inch Macbook Air, as we have another hands-on review for you to check out now, giving you a heads-up before you go out and buy.

The hands-on review comes to us courtesy of BGR, who have also offered a gallery of screenshots of the new model as well as their first impressions.

Like most reviews you’ll probably read for the 11-inch, the dimensions of the new model are a view to behold and if you didn’t own one of the previous Macbook Air models, you’ll be amazed at how light the device actually feels in your hands.

BGR mention some slight concerns over the low-spec processor (1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo), but from the brief time that they had with the device, they said that they didn’t have any performance issues which is a good thing.

For those of you who are now thinking 14-15-inch tablets are just too big, the new 11-inch Macbook Air could well tempt you into a purchase – the premium price remains a barrier for most though.

Check out their thoughts and the photos in the link above. Have any of you bought one already?

    Ordered an 11" about 3 hours ago. My plan had been to buy a MBP and a netbook for $300 or so. But in the end, I decided why waste my time with windows that I hate? For me, the price of one 11" mac was a wonderful alternative to 2 computers. Just hopes it does the job of both!
