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)


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

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch, 2014)


Featuring an updated processor and excellent battery life, the 2014 11-inch Apple MacBook Air is as portable and powerful as ever.

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

What's not to like? The updated $899 11-inch MacBook Air not only boasts longer battery life and better performance than its competitors, but it does so for less.

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...

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

Expert review by:

MacBook Air 13 inch 2014


Still a great buy in spite of its average screen

12+ hours of battery life ; Timeless design ; Great touchpad ; Cool, quiet and fast

Screen is very average

And, as ever, the speakers on the MacBook Air always sound a little better than you initially expect. As with any laptop this size they lack a little bass and are at their best when you're actually sat at your screen (go to other side of the room and...

Macbook Air 2014 review


Apple's latest 11in Macbook sees a £100 price drop despite performance boost

Super thin and light, premium design, smooth performance, slick software, great battery life, good value for money

No Retina display, lack of ports

However, if you own last year's Macbook Air model, there is not enough reason to upgrade to the newest model, as you would likely notice only a slight improvement in performance.

Great laptop!


This laptop is sleek and light. The software is easy to use, and the computer runs great! Definitely worth the money, though a little pricey.
