    An all-around great product that's among the best in its category. You'll almost certainly be happy.

    How we score

    The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

    Engadget Summary

    The latest iteration of the MacBook Air may look identical to the old ones, but it has a newer processor and incredible battery life. The newest 11-inch Air has Intel's new Haswell processor to keep things moving, and Pocket-Lint says "there's plenty of power for things, so things happen with real snap." The newer chip also improved battery life, with CNET saying it lasted "an extremely impressive 10 hours" and TechRadar calling the battery life "incredible." If you were hoping for higher resolution in the 2013 model, then you'll be disappointed to see it's not here but as CNET points out, the display is still "very crisp."
