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.
