The eternal temptation with Apple to spend more money than we planned despite the small benefits

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 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...

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...

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch, June 2013)

 

We're living in a post-iPad age for PCs. Excellent battery life and supremely portable forms sometimes make me ask: why use a laptop, which has subpar battery life, at all? Why not just get things done on a tablet instead?

The new 11-inch MacBook Air manages a phenomenal 10-plus-hour battery life; base $999 model finally has 128GB SSD; still compact and comfortable to use.

New CPUs don’t really boost performance over last year’s Air; still lacking SD card slot; 11-inch display’s not as high-res as competitors'.

Apple’s new 11-inch Air goes a conservative route in 2013, emphasizing longer battery life and more affordable pricing over any big design changes. The battery boost alone might be worth it.

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.
