MacBook Air review (mid 2011)

 

There comes a time when that giant, corporate-issued laptop stops fitting into your lifestyle. When dragging around a Kensington roller case just won't

Apple MacBook Air 11-Inch (2015)

 

The latest MacBook Air 11-inch is Apple's smallest and least expensive laptop, with good performance and more than 11 hours of battery power.

Priced under $900. Elegant design. More than 11 hours of battery life in testing.

Lacks HDMI and Ethernet ports. No SD card slot. Limited storage capacity. 1,366-by-768-resolution display. Only upgradable at time of order.

Conclusion The latest 11-inch Apple MacBook Air might be one of the smallest ultraportable laptops on the market, but its powerful Intel Core i5 processor and long-lasting battery life help it stay ahead of its Core-M-equipped rivals. It also offers...

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch review

 

(For a comparative look at the entire Apple MacBook line, read our 2012 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air roundup .)

The new 11-inch MacBook Air has third-gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, USB 3.0 ports, slightly improved battery life, and a lower price on the higher-end model.

The Air still has relatively few ports and an expensive starting $999 price for only a 64GB SSD -- and that 11-inch screen feels small for its size.

The new 11-inch MacBook Air is every bit as fast as the 13-inch Air, despite its smaller size, but you'll give up 2 hours of battery life in the bargain.

Apple MacBook Air 11-inch (Thunderbolt)

 

The already impressive Apple MacBook Air 11-inch (Thunderbolt) gets Apple's OS X Lion, a speedier processor, Thunderbolt technology, but for this price other laptops offer more features.

Intel Core i5-2467m provides improved processing and integrated graphics capabilities. Better trackpad. Thunderbolt technology enables high-speed data transfers. Attractive, lightweight construction and design.

Unimpressive battery life. Other systems have more RAM. Lack of familiar amenities like Ethernet, an SD card reader, or a sizable hard drive may vex users.

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch) review: Apple MacBook Air (11-inch)

 

Last October, Apple's 11-inch MacBook Air debuted. The tiny, slim ultraportable was the smallest laptop Apple had ever made. Its combination of size and power earned it a four-star review, with caveats: it had a last-generation Core 2 Duo processor,...

The new 11-inch Apple MacBook Air is dramatically faster than last year's version, has a backlit keyboard, and comes with a high-speed Thunderbolt I/O port.

The $999 entry-level Air still has the same limited fixed flash storage and RAM as last year's version, which most people will want to upgrade from--and there's still no SD card slot, Ethernet port, or 3G wireless option.

This year's 11-inch MacBook Air improves on last year's model in several significant ways and is by far the fastest ultraportable you're likely to find, though some users will consider the limited flash storage space to be a hindrance.

Apple's 11-inch MacBook Air (Core i7 1.8GHz) Review Update

 

Last week we published our review of the new 2011 MacBook Air. Both the 11 and 13-inch models ship with ultra low-voltage (ULV) dual-core Sandy Bridge CPUs, a first for the lineup. Also another first for the lineup is the fact that you can now get...

If you're buying the high-end ($1199) 11-inch MacBook Air and care about performance, the 1.8GHz CPU upgrade is worth it. You shouldn't expect any real impact on battery life in normal use but you'll see a noticeable gain in performance across the...

Review Apple MacBook Air 11 Mid 2011 (1.6 GHz, 128 GB SSD) Subnotebook

 

Netbook? No thanks. The smallest and cheapest notebook that Apple

Low weight and small size; Outstanding aluminium case; Very good input devices; Keyboard backlighting; Very good application performance

Not so many ports; Reflective display; RAM is soldered down

Samsung’s 900X1B must prove itself first in the same sector.
