The 13″ Macbook Air might not be a conventional Ultrabook, but I’ve decided to include it as such in the Ultrabook Knowledge Base. That’s because Ultrabooks are arguably produced to the image of Mac Airs, making it a decent point of comparison. A blueprint if you will.
To compare different models by their specifications, please head over to the Tech Specs galore through the link above. Everyone else will find information below in the usual format.

“This same keyboard is found across the entire Apple laptop line, and very few have complained about it.” PCMag.com
I used the exact same keyboard on a Macbook Pro 13″ for a couple months. I’ve always found it a very pleasant to use. Now that the Air comes with the backlit version, I can’t come up with valid complaints any.
