The item I am going to tell you is MacBook air, which is a laptop developed and manufactured by the Apple company. Just like other laptops, it consists of a full-sized keyboard, a screen, and a touch area. But what makes this item stand out is its aluminum case and the thin light structure. In fact, it is said to be the thinnest laptop around the world, being at only 14 mm.
I first saw it at my friend’s home and was attracted by its appearance at once. When I returned, I started to search where I could buy it. Unfortunately, even the nearest Apple Store was 15 kilometers away, which would take me more than one hour to get there. This article is from Laokaoya website. After a lot of consultation, I decided to buy it from an authorized shop in Jingdong, an online shopping website, famous for its delivery speed.
I have to admit that this laptop nearly drove me crazy at first. Its operating system is totally different from the Windows that I had been using for years. I did not even know how to copy and paste documents, and how to close the running programs. Luckily the ways they open files are the same so I could at least edit something and browse the internet.
To overcome these obstacles and save myself from this embarrassing situation, I found many primary introduction videos online and started to watch and learn. Now, I should say I can proficiently use this laptop and I am often amazed by how smooth the system operates and how little time it takes to open a file or start a program.
