Shortcomings of Macbook Air (2010)

Here are some of the shortcomings of the Macbook Air (2010).  While I have the 13″ (4GB, 128GB SSD), most of it applies to all variations of the Macbook Air , including the 11″

  • Keyboard touches screen, when closed.  Unlike other Macbook’s, there is no glass on the screen, hence the keyboard is directly touching and pushing on the LCD — which will probably lead to LCD bruising.
  • No keyboard light.  The keyboard is not lit, and there is no light above the keyboard (eg ThinkLight).
  • Confusing keyboard layout.  Page-Up, Page-Down, Home, End, Delete are all removed from the keyboard.  They are still available by doing key combos, such as Fn-Up for Page-Up.
  • No indicator lights for power, sleep, or wireless.  There is no way to tell if your computer sleeping, on, or off.
  • No Ethernet.
  • No microphone port.
