11-Inch 2013 MacBook Air Review

 

The 2013 MacBook Air refresh brings us two 11-inch and two 13-inch models, with the Airs of matching screen size differentiated solely by their solid-state storage capacity. The cheaper options come with 128GB, while the more expensive ones boast...

Apple MacBook Air 11-inch (Mid 2013)

 

The Apple MacBook Air 11-inch (Mid 2013) is the Haswell updated version of the iconic ultraportable laptop. It lasts over 10 hours running on battery power, so it's a highly recommended choice if you must have the thinnest possible laptop with the most...

Great battery life ; Stellar keyboard and trackpad ; Tiny

The 2013 MacBook Air: Core i5-4250U vs. Core i7-4650U

 

Apple typically offers three different CPU upgrades in its portable Macs: the base CPU, one that comes with the upgraded SKU and a third BTO option that's even faster. In the case of the 2013 MacBook Air, Apple only offered two: a standard SKU (Core...

Simplicity permeates Apple from design and software all the way down to the purchasing experience. The 2013 MacBook Air offers only two choices of CPUs, and honestly for the vast majority of the population, that's all you really need. The default Core...

Apple 13-inch MacBook Air review

 

The 2013 13-inch MacBook Air has enough internal improvements to make it one of the most desirable ultraportable notebooks on the market. It may lack an ultra-high-resolution display and touchscreen functionality, but there's little else to fault it.

Superb industrial design ; Exemplary build quality ; 4th-Generation Core (Haswell) CPU ; Improved HD 5000 GPU ; Excellent battery life ; Fast 256GB SSD ; 802.11ac Wi-Fi

Moderate pixel-density display ; No touchscreen functionality ; Price mounts as options are added

Conclusion Although it looks much the same as the 2012 model on the outside, the 2013 13-inch MacBook Air has enough internal improvements to make it one of the most desirable ultraportable notebooks on the market — if not the most desirable. It may...

The 2013 MacBook Air Review (13-inch)

 

Things didn't go exactly as I'd expected at WWDC. I spent the week before the show at Computex, talking to PC OEMs, who had all just launched their Haswell ULT based Ultrabooks. With a couple of exceptions however, the bulk of Haswell ULT systems...

Five years after its introduction, the MacBook Air really has grown into a very polished, mature platform. The 2013 model is really the epitome of what Apple set out to build back in 2008, we just finally have the right hardware available to realize...

MacBook Air 13-inch Review (mid-2013)

 

Apple's value-proposition for the 2013 MacBook Air is simple: the same sleek ultraportable notebook as before, but lasting much longer. A switch to Intel's latest Haswell processor architecture and a slightly larger battery takes runtime up to twelve...

With the new Intel processors, however, the Air has redeemed itself. Twelve hours of runtime is no laughing matter, and to be able to do it while still handling all the usual applications – video editing included – makes for a highly persuasive...
