Apple MacBook Air 13 (2015) Notebook Review

 

New inner values. Apple's new MacBook Air 13 is even faster than previous models. But, not only the performance is a positive aspect. However, the flaws of the previous generations were, unfortunately, hardly improved.

build quality, system noise during normal use, system performance, battery life

Maintenance, TN panel, 12 months warranty

Once again Apple offers a great and high-end product with the small update. The weaknesses already known from previous models like the TN panel with modest viewing angles were not improved. The resolution also remained unchanged. However, the enormous...

Apple MacBook Air 13-Inch (2015)

 

The latest upgrade of the 13-inch Apple MacBook Air brings a more powerful Core i5 processor and an astounding 17.5 hours of battery life. It remains our top choice for ultraportable laptops.

Elegant design. Updated Intel Core i5 CPU. More than 17 hours of battery life in testing. No bloatware

Lacks HDMI and Ethernet ports. Relatively low-resolution display. Limited storage capacity. Only upgradable at time of order

Apple tends to change things only when it needs to, which explains its incremental, yet impactful upgrades to the 13-inch Apple MacBook Air ($999 as tested). While it uses the same aluminum unibody design and many of the same components as its...

Apple MacBook Air (13-Inch, Early 2015) Review

 

The 13-inch MacBook Air essentially forced competitors to create an entirely new class of laptop, but this venerable ultraportable hasn't received much love from Apple in the past few years. While the latest Air sports a faster new 5th-generation Core...

Apple MacBook Air 2015 13-inch, 128GB

 

But that doesn't mean we're writing the MacBook Air off. It remains one of the most universally useful laptops you can buy, thanks to a still-slim design, excellent keyboard and touchpad, generally fast performance and great battery life. That the Air...

Thanks to a new generation of processors, the MacBook Air gets improved battery life, while maintaining its now classic thin and light metal exterior.

Little else has changed over the past few years, while the competition is catching up on design, battery life and usability. The low-res screen feels more dated than ever.

While still a great all-around useful laptop, the 13-inch MacBook Air is stuck with a lower-res display and a design that's no longer cutting-edge.

Apple MacBook Air (13-Inch, 2015) Review and Ratings

 

There's no denying it, the MacBook Air is showing its age. It's also showing itself as a remarkably capable, attractive ultraportable at any age.

As slim and light as ever ; Superb keyboard and touch pad ; Good performance ; Outstanding battery life

No longer the slimmest and lightest ultraportable ; Screen stuck at low 1,440x900 resolution ; No HDMI port ($35 dongle available)

After fully recharging the laptop, we turn off automatic screen dimming and Wi-Fi and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a video—a locally stored MP4 file containing the...

13-inch MacBook Air review: Apple's affordable laptop nicely blends performance and portability

 

Underneath the sleek exterior, MacBook Air is packed with powerful components that give you smoother graphics, faster storage, and all-around serious performance. Not to mention enough battery life to get you through the day. The result? A computer...

The MacBook Air marches on as a solid, lightweight laptop with enough performance for a large number of users to serve both on the road and on an office desk. They might suffer from a case of feature envy, but more features would surely result in...

Apple MacBook Air 13 (MJVE2LL/A) Review

 

The Apple MacBook Air 13 is starting to show its age a bit, but after several years with only minor hardware changes, the slim laptop is still one of the most recognizable members of the ultrabook category. It no longer leads the pack, but it's still...

With category-leading battery life you can use the 13-inch MacBook Air all day long.

Its once impressive design is showing its age with a low-resolution display and thicker-than-average dimensions.

The Apple MacBook Air 13 is affordable and portable, but its design has lost its shine with a low-resolution display and chunky dimensions.

MacBook Air review

 

Grabbing a MacBook Air now fetches you faster storage

Excellent battery life ; Nippy storage ; Keyboard

Dated design ; Display ; Speakers

Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air now comes with much faster storage, better battery life and slightly improved performance in other areas. On the other hand, its display and design are beyond dated.

MacBook Air review: is this a better choice than the smaller MacBook?

 

More powerful than the MacBook but packing fewer features than the Retina MacBook Pro, the 13-inch MacBook Air now sits somewhere in-between the two.

Battery life ; Fast storage ; Ports

Display ; Dated design ; Speakers

The 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.
