This 3-pound sliver of a computer is truly breathtaking to look at. But here a good processor and 2 gigs of RAM don’t translate to speedy performance, and aside from WiFi and Bluetooth, the only connections are a single USB port, a headphone jack and a micro DVI port. We were frustrated by the constant swapping necessary. Frankly, the Air doesn’t live up to Apple’s “It just works” credo. The bright side is the screen — literally. The 13.3-inch LED-backlit panel is up to four times brighter than any other laptop display we’ve encountered.
