CNET’s review of Apple’s new MacBook Air with all day battery life.
- The good: New Intel fourth-gen CPUs help the updated MacBook Air achieve amazing battery life. The multitouch touch pad is still the industry’s best, and even better, the 13-inch MacBook Air now starts at $100 less than the previous model.
- The bad: Newer features such as touch screens or higher-resolution displays are still missing. The ultrabook competition is catching up, design-wise.
- The bottom line: Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a less-expensive starting price make up for a lack of flashy design changes.
