“The Apple MacBook Air 11-inch ($1,099 as tested) is an ultraportable laptop in the purest sense of the term,” Joel Santo Domingo writes for PC Magazine. “It is very compact, has all-day battery life, and is very easy to drop into a travel bag, whether your commute is one hour or eight. The MacBook Air 11-inch has few rivals among the Windows 8-equipped ultrabooks. Its bigger counterpart, the Editors’-Choice-winning Apple MacBook Air 13-Inch (2014), is still a better bet because of its larger screen, much better battery life, and better ergonomics (for relatively the same price). But if you’re willing to give up a few common features in return for ultimate portability, the MacBook Air 11-inch is a great choice as your everyday traveling companion.”
Santo Domingo writes, “If you constantly work untethered in varied locations or have a well-worn platinum airline frequent flier card in your wallet, however, the 11-inch MacBook Air makes a great travel companion.”
