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) 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.

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...

The 2013 MacBook Air: Core i5-4250U vs. Core i7-4650U

 

Apple typically offers three different CPU upgrades in its portable Macs: the base CPU, one that comes with the upgraded SKU and a third BTO option that's even faster. In the case of the 2013 MacBook Air, Apple only offered two: a standard SKU (Core...

Simplicity permeates Apple from design and software all the way down to the purchasing experience. The 2013 MacBook Air offers only two choices of CPUs, and honestly for the vast majority of the population, that's all you really need. The default Core...

The 2013 MacBook Air Review (13-inch)

 

Things didn't go exactly as I'd expected at WWDC. I spent the week before the show at Computex, talking to PC OEMs, who had all just launched their Haswell ULT based Ultrabooks. With a couple of exceptions however, the bulk of Haswell ULT systems...

Five years after its introduction, the MacBook Air really has grown into a very polished, mature platform. The 2013 model is really the epitome of what Apple set out to build back in 2008, we just finally have the right hardware available to realize...

MacBook Air 13-inch Review (mid-2013)

 

Apple's value-proposition for the 2013 MacBook Air is simple: the same sleek ultraportable notebook as before, but lasting much longer. A switch to Intel's latest Haswell processor architecture and a slightly larger battery takes runtime up to twelve...

With the new Intel processors, however, the Air has redeemed itself. Twelve hours of runtime is no laughing matter, and to be able to do it while still handling all the usual applications – video editing included – makes for a highly persuasive...

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.

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

Still the best all-around laptop you can buy

Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (Mid 2013)

 

Equipped with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 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

Road warriors and jet travellers rejoice, we've found a laptop that will last all day and well into the night. The newest Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (Mid-2013) lasted an astonishing 15-and-a-half hours on a battery test that makes most current...
