  • 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 origi...

  • Overall, I found the combination of weight, features and performance to be ideal. Used constantly over several weeks, it made itself a strong candidate to be the nicest laptop I’ve ever used. It’s just a shame that even the 256GB Core i5 model can’t ...

  • With a design that never seems to date and an impeccable finish, the 2012 13" MacBook Air packs excellent levels of processing power and a monster battery life into a sleek, compact casing. The new MacBook Air has so many great features that you'll soo...

  • Beautiful, sturdy, great keyboard and trackpad, spiffing battery life
  • Expensive, keyboard a bit squeaky, can't be upgraded
  • The Air is our idea of a perfect laptop. It's thin and light, looks the part and has plenty of power for most day-to-day tasks. Video editors might find it underpowered, but we think this is the most perfect balance of power to weight we've seen yet. ...

  • No increase in screen resolution, New power connector, Pricey options
  • The new MacBook Air will be seen as an incremental update for anyone already equipped with the last generation model. If, however, you have an older MacBook Air, the upgrade to Ivy Bridge is pretty compelling. The addition of USB 3.0 is welcome, but the ...
