    Best computer I've ever owned.

    Design: It's the MacBook Air design. We all know. I love it. It looks great and is extremely functional. I love the small size. It's small yet usable. I couldn't think of a better design.

    Keyboard: Very good. The slightly slanted design makes the keyboard very ergonomic. The throw, travel and spacing beat that on any other laptop I've used. The backlit keyboard is also nice.

    Touchpad: It's an Apple trackpad. It's fantastic.

    Display: The display is absolutely above average. The sharpness, color accuracy, viewing angles are all good. At the time that I write this I would say that display is worth NOT waiting for a "Retina" Air to be released. The biggest downsides are that the viewing, while good, are not the best and the color, while also good, could defiantly improve.

    Performance: Great, great, great great. I bought a model with 4gbs of RAM (I went with 4gbs because I bought a refurbed model. If you're buying new I would defiantly say the extra $100 dollars is worth it). I found the RAM to adequate 95% of the time for what I do. Everything feels extremely fast Where I'd like more performance is for when I'm importing and exporting videos into iMovie.

    Heat/Noise: It occasionally get a little hot and sometimes that fan kicks on. I rarely do tasks that would would result in these things. When I say rarely, I really mean RARELY.

    Battery Life: Battery life is pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. When doing my normal tasks (Safari, Pages, Notes, iTunes) I get right about 5hrs with about display brightness around 75%.

    Software: I'm a huge Mountain Lion fan. It's defiantly my favorite OS.
