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.

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.

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 (2015) review: Apple's most affordable MacBook

 

While it lacks the Retina screen and faster Intel chips of newer MacBook Pros, the Air remains a solid, lightweight laptop with marathon battery life.

Thanks to a new generation of processors, the MacBook Air gets improved battery life, while maintaining its now classic thin and light metal exterior.

Little else has changed over the past few years, while the competition is catching up on design, battery life and usability. The low-res screen feels more dated than ever.

While still a great all-around useful laptop, the 13-inch MacBook Air is stuck with a lower-res display and a design that's no longer cutting-edge.

13-inch MacBook Air (early 2015) review: Minor upgrades, but still one of the finest ultraportable laptops available

 

Apple has upgraded its 13-inch MacBook Air with Broadwell processors, faster flash storage and better graphics, and upgrades Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt 2. But physically, and throughout most of the specifications, little else has changed, and our tests...

Thunderbolt 2 enables ‘4K’ display output, Incredible storage performance

Little discernible change in battery life or graphics performance

After some extensive testing, we found the MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2015) to be little different overall to the 2014 model. The Thunderbolt 2 update will prove useful for connecting to high-resolution UHD displays, and a few percent of added...

Apple MacBook Air 13in review

 

Two years ago Apple got really serious about thin and light laptops - and did something really quite important. It replaced its original Air model – that was by then almost three years old – with two new designs. The first Air had been widely perceived...

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...

Apple MacBook Air 2015 review: Only better with time

 

The MacBook Air is as functional as it is a pleasure to take it on the road

Comfortable and well backlit keyboard, along with an accurate and responsive trackpad ; Good battery life ; Strong portfolio of connectivity options

Bulkier than its rivals ; Screen has a low resolution and narrow viewing angles

Apple MacBook Air 13-Inch (2015)

 

The latest upgrade of the 13-inch Apple MacBook Air brings a more powerful Core i5 processor and an astounding 17.5 hours of battery life. It remains our top choice for ultraportable laptops.

Elegant design. Updated Intel Core i5 CPU. More than 17 hours of battery life in testing. No bloatware.

Lacks HDMI and Ethernet ports. Relatively low-resolution display. Limited storage capacity. Only upgradable at time of order.

Conclusion The 2015 Apple MacBook Air 13-inch outmuscles its Core M-equipped and does so with even more battery life. The classic design of its chassis is one that other ultraportables have been trying to emulate for the past 5 years, with varying...
