Consumer Reports Can Recommend The New MacBook Air

Consumer Reports thinks the MacBook Air 11-inch is a very good computer in terms of ergonomics and display, it’s versatile and has good performances. As The Loop reports, in fact, Consumer Reports gave it a 67 out of 100 rating in its latest “Laptop Ratings & Reliability”, available to subscribers.

As The Loop points out, the highest computer in that category used to be the Toshiba Satellite with a 51 out of 100.

As for the 13-inch MacBook Air:

The 13-inch MacBook Air had much more competition in its category, but it still came out on top. Scoring 78 out of 100, the 13-inch MacBook Air topped the list that included 11 other computers.

Not bad, although I’m still having doubts about the reliability of Consumer Reports’ guides and the effect they have on actual consumers. I mean, they’re still not recommending the iPhone 4, right?
