MacBook Air 13-inch Review

Apple’s Latest Macbook Air

Macbook Air is Apple’s latest 13-inch laptop

The 13-inch MacBook Air looks and feels just like last year’s but runs for more than 12 hours. A faster processor, even longer battery life and a lower price solidify the 13-inch MacBook Air as the best ultraportable laptop value. Find out more about it here.

The Good While minor, the small upgrade to the stock CPU in Apple‘s 13-inch MacBook Air results in improved performance. The multitouch trackpad is still the industry’s best, and even better, the 13-inch Air now starts at $999, which is $100 less than the previous model.

The Bad Newer features such as touchscreens and higher-resolution displays are still missing. The ultrabook competition is catching up, in terms of design.

The Bottom Line If you own a MacBook Air from the past couple of years there’s really no need to upgrade, but a small spec bump and minor price cut make the most-current Air even more attractive.

The now-familiar MacBook Air hasn’t seen a design overhaul in several generations, and the small update to the 13-inch and 11-inch models released in April 2014 does nothing to change that.

The current MacBook Air models differ from the 2013 versions in that the base model uses a 1.4GHz Intel Core i5, an upgrade from the previous 1.3GHz processor. More significantly, the 11.6-inch MacBook Air now starts at $899 (from $999) in the US and at £749 (from £849) in the UK, while the 13.3-inch version now drops to $999 (from $1,099) in the US and to £849 (from £949) in the UK. List prices in Australia are AU$1,099 for the 11-inch and AU$1,199 for the 13-inch model.
