I have bought this product from Flipkart for 43,500/- on big billion day sale. This is an amazing product. An amazing laptop for college going students. It is not compatible for playing high graphic games. Heats up quickly due to metal body. Complete value for money fro professional use.
The Good
  • Battery backup is amazing.
  • Boot time is negligible.
  • Good keyboard and touch pad
  • Very light weight.
  • Easy to carry.
The Bad
  • Display quality not good
  • When viewing angle color changes

  • Aluminum finish
  • Best track pad

  • Best display
The Bad
  • Aluminium prone to heating

The MacBook Air is the cheapest of all MacBooks. You can expect it to be at the lower end of the spectrum in terms of its tech specs. Despite this, it’s still highly powerful and efficient. When compared to a MacBook Pro you can obviously expect there to be a difference in speed, but the difference is marginal.
The Good
  • Inexpensive, especially with the hardware it comprises of
  • It’s light. Approximately the weight of three iPhone 7 plus
  • Extremely powerful, despite being made from relatively older hardware.
The Bad
  • It’s not a powerhouse, you’ll need the MacBook Pro for this.

Excellent product at this price. However the size of the laptop is much bigger than an expected 13inch handy laptop. The performance and battery life is superb for the whole day. No heating at all. Quality product and best buy, these days you don't get a compact good performing laptop at this price.

Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air is great as it comes with much faster storage, better battery life and slightly improved performance in other areas. On the other hand, its display and design are beyond dated.

MacBook Air is powered by 5th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. This ultra-efficient architecture was designed to use less power and still deliver high performance. Which means not only can you do whatever you want, you can keep doing it for longer than before. In addition, the Intel HD 6000 graphics processor offers advanced performance you'll particularly notice with games and other graphics-intensive tasks.
The Good
  • You'll have to install the Xcode command line tools to use g++ / java on the terminal. The default compiler for C/C++ is clang.
The Bad
  • it wont be smooth fps for high end games. Highly recommended for games from the App store

While still a great all-around useful laptop, the 13-inch MacBook Air is stuck with a lower-resolution display and no cutting edge design.
The Good
  • New generation processors
  • Improved battery life
The Bad
  • Outdated design & low resolution display
  • Increasing market competition

I bought the Apple Macbook Air two months back after being tired of hearing about how great the product works and seamlessly it'll integrate with my iPhone. To be honest, I am not at all disappointed. The laptop' sleek design, intuitive keyboard design work smoothly. It is no doubt the best of all.
The Good
  • iOS integration
  • Display
  • Keyboard layout
The Bad
  • None yet

A value for money machine.
The Good
  • * Warranty and credibility: Flipkart is the only authorized dealer of Apple Macbook in the whole eCommerce group. Warranty was totally fine and was few days more than 1 year.
  • * Packing: Packing was nice. The unit is April' 2017 manufactured and the box was not opened.
  • * Hardware: Everybody knows about it. No need to reiterate the same things. But, one thing which is worth mentioning, is that the bluetooth and wifi are super-fast in this machine. You enable the wifi or bluetooth and within seconds it is connected.
  • * OS: I got Sierra from box and upgraded to latest version. For 1-2 days, it is difficult to understand, but after that it is super awesome. Once you get used to it, you would not want to go back to Windows back. Rightly pointed out by many users.
  • * Backlight keyboard is awesome. External hdd is a must.
The Bad
  • * The laptop needs complete care. Any repair beyond the warranty scope can be very very costly. Hence best accessories and best covers are very important to protect.

After much apprehension, I finally bought a 2015 Macbook Air for 60k. This laptop is on par with the other windows machines in the 40k-50k range. Comparing it to the ultrabooks in windows, the Macbook air is extremely cheap. The closest windows alternate is alteast 20k more expensive. Considering the expensive service costs, I bought a 2 year extended warranty from a 3rd party called onSiteGo for about 6000/-. They get it serviced by apple and reimburse 100% of the bill. The laptop is very easy to use, with topnotch resource optimization. I have been using it for two months and yet to experience any freezes.
