Review Apple MacBook Air 11 Mid 2013 i5 1.3 GHz 128 GB

 

A gentle breeze. Not a beat too late in the circannual rhythm, Ap

Compact and mobile build, weighs only about 1000 grams (~2.2 lbs); Aluminum unibody case very pleasant to the touch; USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt; Very good input devices; Very good application performance; Increased graphics performance; Very good battery...

No SD card slot; "Only" HD resolution; Almost zero expandability or accessibility for maintenance

Presumably the MacBook Air 13 in its newest edition. Same qualities and a somewhat larger screen for a reasonable fee. Otherwise just the Asus Zenbook UX21A and the Sony Vaio Pro 11, both of which are looking to draw in the same kinds of customers...

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch, April 2014) review

 

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 new 11-inch MacBook Air is a little faster and runs even longer, thanks to a small spec bump. More importantly, the base price drops by $100 to $899.

The new CPU is a very minor upgrade over last year’s Air and the system is still lacking an SD card slot.

Apple’s 11-inch Air is now only available to educational buyers. Everyone else looking for a light Apple laptop should check out the 12-inch MacBook or new MacBook Pro.

Apple MacBook Air ( 11-inch, 128GB)

 

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...

Apple’s 11-inch Air gets a CPU speed bump and a decent price cut over the already excellent 2013 version. If you have a recent model there's no need to upgrade, but for anyone else, it's now a better deal than ever.

Apple MacBook Air 11-inch (2014) Review

 

Here is the question: Is the MacBook Air still a viable choice for those looking for portable yet powerful laptop, especially in a market flooded with Ultrabooks and hybrids?

Excellent design ; Terrific performance ; Quiet and cool ; Superb trackpad and keyboard

Display quality merely adequate ; Lousy port selection ; Aluminum construction prone to dents and scratches

This is a niche device, suitable for Apple users that need both portability and power. While it’s tempting to compare it to other Ultrabooks, it actually has a lot in common with the Surface Pro 2, which has very similar specs and is built for a very...

Apple MacBook Air 11-Inch (2014)

 

The latest 11-inch Apple MacBook Air is an ultraportable laptop in the purest sense of the term. You sacrifice a little utility, but in return, you get a prime travel companion.

Thin and lightweight. Fourth-generation Intel Core processor. Extraordinary battery life. Bright screen. Nice multitouch trackpad. Backlit keyboard. Thunderbolt port. Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

The 1,366-by-768 resolution is lower than many Windows-based counterparts. No SD slot, Ethernet, or HDMI ports. Stiff keyboard and short keyboard deck.

The 2013 MacBook Air Review (11-inch)

 

When Apple launched the second generation MacBook Air in late 2010, I was definitely more interested in the 11” model. It was nearly as small as the iPad, but as a full notebook it was considerably more useful. At 2.3lbs, it wasn't even that much...
