    My mum gave me this laptop afte her work gave it to her and she wan't interested. For university, (I think) it is the perfect laptop - amazing screen, keyboard, touchpad - good battery life (brilliant OS).

    When I get a-charging, the laptop might run a little hot.

    There are no fast external options (no firewire or thunderbolt - which I would love to use to store my photos on).

    Further, with the 2gb option ... there Aperture sure can run slow, although that the photos are stored on an external USB HDD probably doesn't help.

    I have become spoiled for speed with the SSD ... but now looking for a machine more suited to photo editing.

    I love everything about this laptop. Its weight and form factor make it the ultimate portable machine, and, as long as you're not doing render-intensive work, the specs leave little to desire. The screen is prone to showing the occasional spittle (I have a proclivity for spit-takes), which wouldn't be too big of an issue if it wasn't so hard to clean. A lighted keyboard would be nice, but not at the cost of battery life, so I'm fine without it. All in all, this Macbook Air is the Mayor of Bonertown, and I'm a better man because it's in my life.
