The MacBook Air 2013 is a refreshed version of the skinny laptop with the latest Haswell processor. The MacBook Air uses the ULT variants of the chip, which should result in 40% faster graphics and much improved battery life. Also new is support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the faster and not-yet-finalized standard that should greatly improve range and bring wireless transmission speeds up to a theoretical 1300Mbps.

I know Anand has long said that Macs and PCs don't get cross shopped that often, but recently I've been asked for notebook advice by a lot of people who are completely platform agnostic. With the emphasis on web apps, there's not much holding a normal...

Because the physical appearance and screen of the Macbook Air remained basically unchanged from models of the past few years, it might be easy to assume that this year's model isn't a big step forward for the Macbook Air line. This assumption, however,...

When my parents bought me my first laptop, I fought tooth and nail to spend the extra money and get a bigger model. The 15-inch Dell Inspiron E1505 I cajoled them into purchasing was backpack-fillingly large and back-breakingly heavy, but man did it have...
