Apple MacBook Air 11 (Early 2015) Notebook Review

 

Unchanged evergreen. Apple refreshes its MacBook Air-series with current Broadwell processors. This does improve the performance noticeably, but something is missing – innovation.

Very good system performance, Increased GPU performance, Battery runtime, Input devices, Build quality

Increased price, HD resolution, Port variety

The Apple MacBook Air is still some kind of evergreen in the notebook world, despite the lack of innovation. As expected, the new components inside the chassis are very convincing and the performance was increased compared to the predecessors. Although...

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch, 2015)

 

There are some for whom even a 13-inch notebook is too big. The 11-inch MacBook Air, the least expensive and (nearly) smallest model in Apple's lineup, could be what those users are looking for. Although it weighs less than 2.5 pounds, the 11-inch Air...

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch, 2015) Review

 

Strong performance; Small, light design; Above-average battery life; More ports than 12-inch MacBook

Low screen resolution; Staid design; No SD card slot

While the screen could be sharper, the updated 11-inch MacBook Air is a very light ultraportable that offers great performance and battery life for the price.

Review: The 2015 MacBook Air’s once-trailblazing design is showing its age

 

Its insides are more than competitive, but they're encased in 2010's design.

Internal specs are still top-of-the-line for this price, size, and weight class—PC OEMs aren’t going to give you this faster GPU, either ; High-quality construction ; We didn’t talk about it much, but this is doubly true of the 11-inch model. PC OEMs...

A design that stood out for its portability in 2010 is merely average in 2015

Review: The 2015 Broadwell refreshes are similar, but not identical.

Apple MacBook Air (11.6-inch, 2013 Version) Review and Ratings

 

Ridiculously long battery life highlights the latest 11.6-inch MacBook Air, which boasts the same skinny yet sturdy aluminum unibody design you've come to know and love.

Outstanding battery life ; Sleek, sturdy unibody chassis ; Comfortable, full-sized keyboard ; Responsive, versatile touch pad

Slightly slower performance than last year's model in spots ; Big bezel leaves us wanting a larger screen ; Weak display hinge ; No media card slot

Its $999 price remains the lowest in the Mac lineup, but this year's 11.6-inch MacBook Air features twice the solid-state storage (128GB, up from 64GB). It's also worth noting that the 1.3GHz Core i5 processor in this year's model features a lower...

Apple MacBook Air 2015 review (13-inch): is this a better choice than the smaller MacBook?

 

Though young at heart, the MacBook Air is beginning to show its age

Battery life ; Fast storage ; Ports

Display ; Dated design ; Speakers

The 2015 MacBook Air is unexciting and not as fashionable as it once was, but its excellent battery life, decent performance and good selection of ports make it worthy of your consideration for another year.

MacBook Air 11in (2015) review

 

Is this Air still fresh?

Still supremely portable ; Typical Mac useability ; Enough power for practically any everyday computing

Screen resolution now looks very low

The design is ageing and the screen is past-it, but it’s still portable royalty.

Apple MacBook Air 2015 review: Only better with time

 

Earlier we reviewed the Apple MacBook, and although it was undeniably easy to take with us on the go, it was tougher to work on everyday. The Air variant is a little bigger, but it retains a strong set of connections and a keyboard soft enough on...
