Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (2013) review

 

The 2013 MacBook Air is still a solid laptop, but it's no longer the obvious choice. This entry-level Mac is hard to recommend to anyone except consumers who want OS X but can't afford a Pro.

The 13-inch Air’s new $1,100 starting price undercuts competitors like the and , but it puts Apple in an uncomfortable position. For the first time in years, the company is selling based on price rather than quality.

MacBook Air review (13-inch, mid-2013)

 

We can't lie: we were hoping for a Retina MacBook Air last year when Apple rolled out the thinner, faster MacBook Pros with their pixel-packed displays

Phenomenal battery life ; Fast I/O from PCIe SSDs ; 100 less than last year ; Great keyboard and trackpad

Still no Retina display ; Base CPU performance lower than last year

The 2013 MacBook Air offers amazing battery life and disk I/O performance for an even more accessible price, but it sure could use a few more pixels in that display.

Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, April 2014) review

 

The now-familiar MacBook Air hasn't seen a design overhaul in several generations, and the small update to the 13-inch and 11-inch models released in April 2014 does nothing to change that.

While minor, the small upgrade to the stock CPU in Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air results in improved performance. The multitouch trackpad is still the industry's best, and even better, the 13-inch Air now starts at $999, which is $100 less than the...

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

If you own a MacBook Air from the past couple of years there's really no need to upgrade, but a small spec bump and minor price cut make the most-current Air even more attractive.

Apple MacBook Air 13-Inch (2014)

 

The latest 13-inch Apple MacBook Air updates one of the best ultraportables around making it faster and more powerful, while proving that some things don't need to change at all.

Updated processor offers category-leading performance. More than 12 hours of battery life. Elegant thin-and-light design remains unchanged.

No HDMI or Ethernet ports. Limited storage capacity.

Conclusion This year's Apple MacBook Air benefits from an updated Intel processor, but sticks to a tried and true design that doesn't need to change. The result is improved performance while retaining all of the thin-and-light portability that has made...

Toby's Estate Coffee in Brooklyn should be my favorite local coffee shop. The Australian company's first US location is big and bright, with ample seating, great service, and terrific coffee — the...

Amazing battery life ; Industry-leading trackpad and keyboard ; More affordable than ever

Slight performance dip ; Paltry 128GB storage in base model ; No Retina display. Also, no pony

Still the best all-around laptop you can buy

Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (Mid 2013)

 

The latest MacBook Air 13-inch shows decent performance gains. But it's the ultraportable's over 15 hours of battery life that blows away the competition.

Over 15 hours of battery life, even with a Core i5 processor. Light and portable. Less expensive than previous iteration. Nice screen. Thunderbolt port. Dual microphones for FaceTime and future Siri use.

No HDMI. Not 1080p. Some performance cost for battery life.

With double the battery life of the strongest current Windows 8 competition, the Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (Mid 2013) adds epic untethered usability to a highly portable system. While systems like the Acer Aspire S7-191-6640 and Vizio CT14-A4 start to...

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

Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, June 2013) review

 

Editors' note, June 27, 2017: Apple has updated the 13-inch MacBook Air a handful of times since debuting the 2013 version reviewed below. The most recent update came in June 2017, when Apple delivered faster, more powerful Intel processors to the $999...

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 MacBook Air 13-inch (2014) Review

 

A faster processor, even longer battery life and a lower price solidify the 13-inch MacBook Air as the best ultraportable laptop value.

Amazingly long battery life; Fast performance; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad; Sturdy yet slim design; Runs cool

Relatively low-res display; Somewhat slower flash than last version

A faster processor, even longer battery life and a lower price solidify the 13-inch MacBook Air as the best ultraportable laptop value.
