Macbook Air Review 2010 – vs. Alienware M11x, HP Envy, and more

Are you looking to upgrade to a new laptop, and thinking Macbook or Windows? With more people moving to Mac OS X everyday, you may be wondering why they’re doing this after spending years using Microsoft Windows, and we want to help you discover what’s right for you.

PC World has taken a look at the new MacBook Air for 2010, and compared it with a variety of Windows 7 laptops to see how it performs. They tested both the new 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air’s, which were compared to the Asus U33jc, Alienware M11x, HP Envy, Lenovo IdeaPad Y460, Dell Vostro 3300, and Toshiba Portege R700.

They tested key areas that included performance, graphics, and battery life. The results show that Windows notebooks with similar prices to the new MacBook Air’s did outperform the Mac equivalent. You can read the full results in their article here, and while they confirm that the test was not to show if Mac is better or worse than Windows, we will urge buyers to try and get hands-on with Mac OS X before making a decision. While its different, you may enjoy the so-called “reliability” of Mac OS X.

After you read PC World’s tests, feel free to watch the three videos below. The first one looks at the new Macbook Air 13-inch vs. 2010 Macbook Pro, which may seem a weird comparison but it does have valid reasons to some buyers. The second two videos are relevant for those thinking about stepping into Mac for the first time, while they are comical, it’s a nice update on Mac and Windows operating systems going head to head.

So what do you think about the new MacBook air and the latest alternatives?
