All the power you want. All day long. Now starting at $899.
Looks like the previous rumors of a Apple Retina Macbook Air can be laid to rest as Apple pushes out it’s April 2014 update to the Macbook Air. Apple has upgraded the power to the slimline notebook by adding a 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz) with 3MB shared L3 cache, and configurable to 1.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz) with 4MB shared L3 cache. According to Apple, “The 11-inch model gets up to 9 hours of battery
life on a single charge and the 13-inch model gets up to 12 hours.” Apple also says by putting the MacBook Air to sleep for more than 3 hours, it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days. And if you enable Power Nap, you’ll continue to receive new email and calendar invitations while your computer is asleep.
You have a choice of a 128 GB SSD or a 256 GB SSD in the new Macbook Air models. With two models of each size you decide if an 11″ or 13″ screen with a 128 or 256 drive is best for your needs. From the specs it looks like the only difference between the two 11″ or 13″ models is the size of screen and SSD. When picking the 13″ over the 11″ you will get a built in SD card slot, but this has not changed.
The Macbook Air notebooks have also been upgraded to the new 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless networking; IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology. If having a retina display is not a must have for you then these upgrades to the Macbook Air models are definitely something to take a look at when searching for your next Mac.
