Review of Macbook Air

This is a review of MacBook Air which which comes with an 11 inch or 13 inch screen.

It has the latest Intel processor and fast flash storage and graphics, it is claimed to be the ultimate everyday notebook.

Is the MacBook Air suitable for a home recording studio?

Yes it is. It is more than capable of doing the job. Its powerful, light weight and best of all portable. The only drawback is the small screen but if you can manage with a 11 or 13 inch screen you will be more that happy with the MacBook Air.

I hope the Review of MacBook Air has helped you.
