Apple MacBook Air
Slim, sexy and surprisingly functional, the MacBook Air is a great traveling computer.
Although lacking all the features of a fully fledged MacBook or MacBook Pro, the MacBook Air offers a compact travel form unrivalled in the laptop market.
With no FireWire port, Ethernet port or optical disc drive, the MacBook Air may initially seem a crippled computing choice. But when you're on a plane, on a train or in a car, you'll hardly miss what you'd never use anyway.
The MacBook Airweighs in at only 1.3kg and has a maximum thickness of only 0.76in, making it an attractive companion to slip into your briefcase, backpack or manila envelope. You'll be ready to pull it out and hop on the local Wi-Fi at a moment's notice.
The MacBook Air isn't meant to be your household's primary computer. But when you're not at home, it can be just what the doctor ordered. You won't regret the £1,199 you'll spend on the Air.
