Review Apple MacBook Air 13 Mid 2013 MD760D/A Subnotebook

 

Battery Life Extensions. Traditionally, Apple products have long product cycles and are only upgraded conservatively here and there. Thus, it does not come as a surprise that the MacBook Air 13 is the spitting image of its predecessor. In the following...

Great workmanship ; Light and slim ; Very good backlit keyboard ; Silent at low load ; Good system performance ; Fast storage devices ; Very good battery life ; Thunderbolt offers extensive upgrade possibilities ; Port posiitioning

Case edge is quite sharp in certain areas ; No mobile broadband module available ; Wobbly display in slanted position ; Non-removable battery ; No internal upgrade options ; Reflective display ; No display port adapter in delivery ; Small gaps between...

The competition required so much time to create laptops which could compete with the MacBook Air. Only now can we say that the alternatives are very attractive and offer some advantages over Apple's notebook

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...

Review: Latest Intel chip boosts speed and endurance in new MacBook Air

 

Apple new ultraportable laptop sports a few under-the-hood changes that make it even better than before.

Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, 2013)

 

It may be a case of "the more things change, the more they stay the same."

New Intel fourth-gen CPUs help the updated MacBook Air achieve amazing battery life. The multitouch trackpad is still the industry's best, and even better, the 13-inch MacBook Air now starts at $100 less than the previous model.

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

Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a lower starting price make up for a lack of flashy design changes.

Apple 13-Inch MacBook Air

 

The best ultra-portable computer just got better -- with a new processor and some much-improved battery performance.

Phenomenal battery life, over 12 hours in most conditions. Respectable performance thanks to Intel’s new Haswell processor. Same .68-inch thick, super light-chassis. Best keyboard and trackpad out there. Better networking performance with 802.11ac support

No Retina display yet. For some, lack of Ethernet port or optical drive may be a deal-breaker. Gets expensive once you max out the SSD and RAM
