MacBook Air Review Roundup
Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 3:17 AM EST
Posted by: Brian

Well, some of the early reviews are starting to come in for the MacBook Air. The reviews are from Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal, Edward Baig of USA Today, and Steven Levy of Newsweek. You know, the guys that always get the shiny new goodies from Apple early. Overall, they were impressed with the MacBook Air's design, build quality and size, but also go on to mention its shortcomings. Here are the links and final few lines from each review:

Wall Street Journal
Walt Mossberg writes, "If you value thinness, and a large screen and keyboard in a subnotebook, and don't watch DVDs on planes or require spare batteries, the MacBook Air might be just the ticket. But if you rely on spare batteries, expect the usual array of ports, or like to play DVDs on planes, this isn't the computer to buy."

Newsweek
Steven Levy writes, "Though I can quibble with a few of Apple's choices of what to take off, the product's dimensions and design make the case that the losses were not in vain. The things that Apple left on were the ingredients for a quality computer. And, did I mention how thin it is?"

USA Today
Edward Baig writes, "Given the compromises, I don't expect anyone to use Air as their only computer. But it is a yummy machine for people who spend a lot of time traveling."
