Nik, London General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The Macbook Air, Magic Mouse and Superdrive I purchased are not only beautiful in design, but are light-weight and reliable. The Macbook Air itself is a little more pricey that it's Windows or Linux running counterparts, but it's worth it for the fact it handles everything so much better, from processing files to surfing the net. It has no problems running InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop at the same time, although it's not designed for the purpose of being a Graphic Designer's workstation, it works fine in that capacity. The Magic Mouse is faultless, imo it's the best mouse on the market and the only thing I prefer to use is a Pen/Tablet. Anyone looking to buy these items should not be disappointed, and the Macbook, if looked after, will last a lot longer in terms of speed and power than any windows based laptop/netbook.
Bad points:
The only thing I can think of as a negative is the price, but you're paying for quality. You really do get what you pay for in the laptop market.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very small and lightweight. Extremely quick to start up - takes about 20 seconds. E-mail didn't need to be set up as it did it all for me (initial account at least)
Bad points:
The cost is quite steep, but it is a quality product that should last for a long time.
