MacBook Air review

 

Grabbing a MacBook Air now fetches you faster storage

Excellent battery life ; Nippy storage ; Keyboard

Dated design ; Display ; Speakers

Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air now comes with much faster storage, better battery life and slightly improved performance in other areas. On the other hand, its display and design are beyond dated.

MacBook Air review: is this a better choice than the smaller MacBook?

 

More powerful than the MacBook but packing fewer features than the Retina MacBook Pro, the 13-inch MacBook Air now sits somewhere in-between the two.

Battery life ; Fast storage ; Ports

Display ; Dated design ; Speakers

The MacBook Air is unexciting and not as fashionable as it once was, but its excellent battery life, decent performance and good selection of ports make it worthy of your consideration for another year.

13-inch MacBook Air (early 2015) review

 

Grabbing big air now fetches you faster storage

Excellent battery life ; Nippy storage ; Keyboard

Dated design ; Display ; Speakers

The arrival of Apple's 12-inch MacBook earlier this year marked the beginning of the end for its MacBook Air lineup. At least, that's what people said at the time.

Apple 13-inch MacBook Air review (early 2015)

 

The 2015 MacBook Air has unbeatable battery life and a superb build, but its lacklustre screen holds it back

Apple MacBook Air 13in (2015) review

 

Third verse, same as the first

Excellent battery life ; Fair performance ; Still super-slim and light

Design ageing in parts ; Pretty poor screen ; Lacks some benefits of latest Pro Macbooks

The design is fraying around the edges, but this is still one of the most practical sub-£1000 portable laptops.

Apple MacBook Air 13in (Mid-2012) review

 

The Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display grabbed all the limelight when it launched this June. At the same launch event though its lightweight compadre the MacBook Air benefitted from a quiet refresh. And a most useful one at that.

This revised 13in MacBook Air is a little bit faster in general speed, a lot faster in graphics speed – if only catching up with 2010’s Air – but with approaching an hour of extra battery life. We also appreciate the even quieter fan. This is the...

Apple MacBook Air 13in (2012) review

 

If you're an Apple fan, deciding which MacBook to buy just got harder – here's the case for the 2012 Air

More grunt, but remains totally silent ; Flawless build quality

Starts expensive, and only gets pricier ; Skinny rivals are snapping at its heels

The Air hangs on to its position as the best lightweight laptop to beat – for now

Apple MacBook Air 13in (2012) review

 

Apple might have the smaller ultra-portable market all but sewn up with the 11-inch MacBook Air, but there are far more alternatives once screen size jumps up to 13 inches. Without a gorgeous MacBook Pro-style Retina display, it's up to Intel's Ivy...

Intel Ivy Bridge processors and faster storage give the MacBook Air a welcome performance boost

Apple MacBook Air 13in (early 2015) review: has Apple changed enough to stay on top?

 

Is the 2015 MacBook Air enough of an upgrade to justify itself?

Thin and light construction; incredible battery life

Screen is underwhelming

Performance and storage upgrades keep the already superb MacBook Air ticking over, but the iffy quality screen is starting to hold it back
