Review: MacBook Air (mid-2014)

 

The MacBook Air has really come into its own with later revisions and price cuts, which is why, despite being an amazing computer, it's mildly disappointing that the mid-2014 model is a very minor refresh, with just two significant changes. The...

Outstanding battery life. Extremely portable. This 2014 release gets a price cut

Is a Retina model coming soon that could render this one obsolete

The MacBook Air gives amazing portability and all-day battery without compromising on power.

Apple MacBook Air ( 13-inch, 256GB)

 

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 11-inch (2014) Review

 

The Apple MacBook Air is a niche device, suitable for Apple users that need both portability and power. It doesn't offer enough to be an everyday device, and it's too pricey to be a companion device for occasional travel.

Excellent design ; Terrific performance ; Quiet and cool ; Superb trackpad and keyboard

Display quality merely adequate ; Lousy port selection ; Aluminum construction prone to dents and scratches

This is a niche device, suitable for Apple users that need both portability and power. While it’s tempting to compare it to other Ultrabooks, it actually has a lot in common with the Surface Pro 2, which has very similar specs and is built for a very...

Apple MacBook Air 11-Inch (2014)

 

The latest Apple MacBook Air 11-inch is an ultraportable laptop in the purest sense of the term. It gives up a little utility, but in return, it's a great companion for the ultra-mobile user.

Thin and lightweight. Fourth-generation Intel Core processor. Extraordinary battery life. Bright screen. Nice multitouch trackpad. Backlit keyboard. Thunderbolt port. Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi

The 1,366-by-768 resolution is lower than many Windows-based counterparts. No SD slot, Ethernet or HDMI ports. Stiff keyboard and short keyboard deck

The Apple MacBook Air 11-inch ($1,099 as tested) is an ultraportable laptop in the purest sense of the term. It is very compact, has all-day battery life, and is very easy to drop into a travel bag, whether your commute is one hour or eight. The...

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.

Thin and portable design; Strong performance; Excellent battery life; Very fast SSD; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad; Great productivity apps

Lower-resolution display than competitors'; No SD card slot

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

Apple doesn't mess with success. While that statement could easily apply to any of the products coming out of Cupertino these days, it's especially true of the MacBook Air, which hasn't seen a significant design change in years. While the ultrabook...

Review: 2014 MacBook Air (11-in)

 

At Gizmag, we often review brand spankin' new devices that sit on the cutting edge of technology. Other products we review are little more than incremental updates over their predecessors. And then there's the 2014 MacBook Air, a device that gives new...

Just remember that we kept this review short and sweet since, again, this new model is almost identical to last year's MBA. You might want to hit up for a deeper dive.

Apple MacBook Air 11in (2014) review

 

Apple's new MacBook Air 11in is the company's cheapest laptop ever – but has it cut corners as well as the price tag?

So small and light it's barely there Reasonably priced Great performance Loads of free software

Disappointing screen

A well-specced and beautifully built machine which is now cheaper than ever – but that screen definitely needs upgrading

Apple MacBook Air 13in (2014) review

 

Our favourite laptop of all time receives quite possibly the smallest upgrade of all time - and it's still brilliant

Even better battery life Slightly faster processor Still entirely beautiful to look at and use

Not a Retina display Not a games machine

Apple barely changes a thing but the MacBook Air remains the best laptop available
