    Default Apple Macbook Air 11" pros and cons?

    Hi I am tossing up if I should get the 11 or 13 inch. I like the size of the 11.

    Any reviews would be great thanks

    I prefer my 13inch as I found the keyboard too small on the 11 inch.

    Have you gone to a JB Hi Fi/Myers/Apple store and tested the two??

    I find a good test is to open up word and practice typing and then also open up facebook and see what my photos look like on that screen size (i'm a pretty heavy photographer, so thats a big deal for me!)

    Thanks for your reply. I'm going to go in this week and check them out. I am big time into photography so will take that into consideration. I have an Imac so really want this to be my toy for on the couch surfing the net etc not so much using programs etc.

    Definitely 13 inch, it's a nice size. 11 inch is just a bit small for me, considering it's an air (so thin).

    Agree with the above comments. I have the 13 inch, the 11 was a touch small for the same thing. Word documents and internet browser just too small

    I've got the 13" and I love it! Perfect size for sitting on the couch.

    I agree with above comments.

    I have the 13inch.
    I unexpectedly got into photography as a hobby and we ended up getting an IMac for me to do it all on as editing on the air was a little hard due to the size.
    I still use the air when I'm out, however I couldn't imagine doing much on an 11 inch.

    If it's just for surfing the net I would think the 11inch would be good.

    How big is an iPad? Would an 11inch be much different to an IPad with a keyboard?

    Is there much of a price difference between the 11 and 13 inch?
    How much more do you pay for 2 inches?

    Just looked online at some comparison photos of the 11inch.

    It actually looks bigger than what I thought it would

    For just surfing the net on the couch and not using applications I think the 11 would be perfect.
