I recently unboxed and set up Apple's new MacBook Air and I must say I was prepared to be unimpressed. Why? I had heard others say it was underpowered and it was actually too thin. Ha, figure that. Others had complained that there was no DVD/CD drive and no ethernet port so it's crippled. So you might be surprised when I tell you I agree entirely and moreso with the Consumer Reports MacBook Air review that gives it high marks and a recommended status. I imagine there's also a good reason for the average user rating of a solid 5 stars too.
