For the past few years, Apple’s famous MacBook Air has added the latest generation of Intel processors, and some other changes, like ports or the type of solid state memory inside. However, the biggest change that MacBook Air had suffered every year was the processor update, while all the other changes have felt very minor.
This is a fact if we compare it with the new 12-inch MacBook 2015, which comes with an impressive thin and stylish design. Also, to be mentioned that the MacBook Pro was also redesigned in 2012, coming with plenty of high-end configuration options and a great high-res display.
However, this doesn’t mean that MacBook Air is not worth a chance. This laptop is probably one of the most universally useful laptops that people can buy, due to its still-slim design, a great battery life and excellent keyboard and touchpad. It also has an acceptable price, as the less-expensive MacBook starts from 999 dollars, but customers can also opt for better configurations and go up to the 1,299 dollars.
Even if many other laptops continue to catch up to the Air, and even if some manage to overpass its specs, Apple claimed that this model is having the longest-lasting mainstream laptop battery. They still claim that, because they added a minor upgrade for this year’s model to Intel’s fifth-generation Core I-series processor, known as Broadwell.
The new version of the MacBook Air can go up to 18 hours on video playback battery drain test, move past its previous version. No doubt that this laptop can be used for an entire day and still got some battery life in it. Apple MacBook Air comes with a 13.3-inch display and 1,440×900 resolution, Intel Core I5-5250U processor, powered by 4GB DDR3 SDRAM, 1536MB Intel HD Iris Graphics 600 and128GB soli state drive. It runs Apple OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 and also has 802.11ac wireless and Bluetooth 4.0. This laptop has 2.92 pounds without the power cable, meaning that is unchanged from last year’s model.
The MacBook Air remains a solid machine for work and play, being used everywhere, from conference rooms to coffee shops.
