    It's difficult if you don't have an external screen. Get ready to squint something fierce!

    It's a great little machine. The screen quality is a bit sucky though (OLED?) and without glass, it feels quite fragile compared to the Macbook Pros.

    I'd wait it out for a retina Air, or only grab an existing Air if it's on sale somewhere. I got mine from JB Hifi for $980 - bargain!

      OLED screens are not in working apple devices. That tech is barely even mainstream where TV costing US$5000 or more. Theres an issue where the blue LED's would die sooner than the other pixels.

      The screen is a normal Back-lit LED affair. It lacks any special coating that increases the viewing angle that the more expensive laptops receive. Most likely to keep the costs down.
