Criteria Comments Rating
- Speed and features i7, SSD, Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt , amazing performance! I run Fusion with Windows 7 VM's, performance is OUTSTANDING!
- Design and form factor Thin, light and quiet!
- Battery life Battery life is very good, about 4 hours under normal use.
- Display No comments
- Durability No comments
- Expandability no real expandability to speak of, other than external device expandability.
- Noise With no moving parts, the unit is silent. Might hear a cpu fan every so often, depending on how hard your taxing the system, buy overall, a silent killer!
- Portability (size / weight) The most portable laptop around, very thin, light and easy to carry.
I have the Mid 2011 11" unit with the i7, 256gb SD, 4GB. FAST unit. I really like the portability of this unit without sacrificing performance. I am running Fusion with Windows 7 vm's and performance is spectacular. If you need high performance and high portability, this is the unit! Sandy Bridge and Lion, just round out an awesome machine!
