Apple MacBook Air MD712LL/A 11.6-Inch Laptop

  • Excerpt: If you're looking for optimal portability, and you're willing to lose some power for it, then this is tough to beat. It comes in at just over two pounds, about half the weight of the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, and the smaller screen means the casing on this MacBook is smaller overall. Within this petite frame you can pick between an i5 and an i7 Dual-Core Intel processor, depending on the kind of performance you need.

Apple 11-inch MacBook Air MD711LL/A

6 March 2015
  • Excerpt: When ordering this laptop directly from Apple it comes in right at the $1,000 cap and for this price you should expect a lot more than Apple delivers. This model has a 13-inch display which is decent but pales in comparison with similarly priced PC laptops that have 17-inch displays. You get a fourth-generation Intel i5 dual-core processor with this laptop which is good but there are similarly priced models out there with i7 quad-core CPUs.

  • Conclusion: Minor nitpicks aside, the 2014 MacBook Air 11-inch is perfect for anyone looking for a highly portable laptop that doesn't sacrifice keyboard comfort or battery life for size. For $899, it delivers comparable performance, a longer-lasting battery, and a better typing experience than similarly priced Windows compacts.
  • Pros: Sleek aluminum unibody chassis, Comfortable, full-sized keyboard, Large, responsive touch pad, Epic battery life
  • Cons: Low-resolution screen, No SD card slot

Apple MacBook Air ( 11-inch, 128GB)

CNET
4 October 2013
  • Summary: Apple’s 11-inch Air gets a CPU speed bump and a decent price cut over the already excellent 2013 version. If you have a recent model there's no need to upgrade, but for anyone else, it's now a better deal than ever.
  • Pros: The new 11-inch MacBook Air is a little faster and runs even longer, thanks to a small spec bump. More importantly, the base price drops by $100 to $899.
  • Cons: The new CPU is a very minor upgrade over last year’s Air and the system is still lacking an SD card slot.

  • Conclusion: The Apple MacBook Air 11-inch (Mid 2013) is the Haswell updated version of the iconic ultraportable laptop. It lasts over 10 hours running on battery power, so it's a highly recommended choice if you must have the thinnest possible laptop with the most battery life.

updated MacBook Air review: A little faster, a little slower, a little more affordable

Macworld
2 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The MacBook Air is a great portable system. Thin and light with long battery life, the MacBook Air’s inclusion of Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 ports also allow them to work respectably as a desktop system when at the office. The 128GB flash storage isn’t as fast as larger capacities, so I’d recommend going with one of the models outfitted with 256GB. James is the director of Macworld Lab.
  • Pros: Long battery life, Light and compact, Long battery life, Light and compact, Long battery life, Light and compact
  • Cons: Sluggish write speeds, Flash storage speeds not as fast as we've come to expect, Sluggish write speeds

  • Conclusion: For most shoppers eyeing the MacBook Air, the tougher decision won't be Air or Windows ultrabook, but 11.6-inch or 13.3-inch Air. The latter is narrowly the better deal, at only $100 more with a larger screen and longer battery life, but if you're constantly on the move and aren't constantly popping a flash card into your laptop, we have no reservations recommending the smaller of the two. It requires few sacrifices for its elegant, superbly portable design.
  • Pros: Outstanding battery life, Sleek, sturdy unibody chassis, Comfortable, full-sized keyboard, Responsive, versatile touch pad
  • Cons: Slightly slower performance than last year's model in spots, Big bezel leaves us wanting a larger screen, Weak display hinge, No media card slot
