Joanna Stern reviews the MacBook Air running Windows 7 in Boot Camp and asks, “Does putting Windows 7 on the MacBook Air make it the best ultrabook?”
I’d go a step further. Not only is it the best ultrabook, it’s the best Windows laptop on the market.
Try as they might, and despite $300 million in subsidies from Intel, PC manufacturers have not been able to come close to the Air’s combination of blazing speed, price, fit and finish, keyboard and trackpad quality, portability, and battery life. Never mind the fact that if one day you decide to ditch Windows, you already own a top-notch Mac laptop as well.
When it was introduced, the Air was seen as an overpriced novelty item for rich. A few years later, it has Intel and PC manufacturers in a full-blown panic.
