- What's so great about it?
- Are there any drawbacks I should consider?
I travel frequently, and my MacBook Pro was starting to weigh on me—literally. At nearly 4.5 lbs., it wasn’t exactly a light laptop by today’s standards. When I bought that laptop, it wasn’t considered to be heavy, but it had been more than two years since I’d upgraded, and my weary shoulders and back were telling me it was time to upgrade to a newer, lighter laptop. The MacBook Air seemed to be the obvious choice, but in the past I’d avoided it out of fear that I’d sacrifice performance or storage space.
