Where is the eject button on the MacBook Air?

On the 2011 onwards models of the macbook Air, there is no eject button. It was removed because the 2011+ models of the macbook Air has no optical drive that requires an eject button. In other words, Apple are trying to get rid of parts to make their products cheaper to make (which means even more broken parts). Mac products look nice, but for durability they rate a flimsy 2 out of 10. If it is durability you want, without constantly having to visit the repair shop or buy new parts, you're better off sticking to Windows.

Two user suggestions are from the Apple forums are:
  • Press CMD + E.
  • In the Finder window, under the "Devices" option on the left, you should see the drive, with the words "eject" beside it.
