MacBook Air review (13-inch, mid-2013)

The 2013 MacBook Air offers amazing battery life and disk I/O performance for an even more accessible price, but it sure could use a few more pixels in that display.

Pros
  • Phenomenal battery life
  • Fast I/O from PCIe SSDs
  • $100 less than last year
  • Great keyboard and trackpad
Cons
  • Still no Retina display
  • Base CPU performance lower than last year
