In 2008 Steve Jobs introduced the first ultra-thin, very lightweight MacBook Air by dramatically sliding it out of an inter-office envelope. The idea of a dramatically thin, lightweight, and fully functional laptop continues on.

Refurbished and used MacBook Air and Auctions

In April 2014, Apple refreshed the MacBook Air with marginally faster processors and dropped the price of the entry-level 11-inch model to $899 from $999. The computer still remains Apple’s thinnest and lightest notebook, retaining the design introduced in late-2010. The MacBook Air gained remarkable battery life with its mid-2013 update, and is the gold standard in mobile computing. The MacBook Air line includes 1.4GHz processors across the line with Intel Haswell Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.7GHz. All four models ship with 4GB of RAM standard, and built-to-order versions can go up to 8GB and gain 500GB flash storage drives. We’re expecting a new MacBook Air line with a 12-inch Retina display, even thinner/lighter profile, and enhanced Multi-Touch trackpad to arrive later in 2014.

Read our full coverage for details.

Our recommendation:

Recommend
This April 2014 MacBook Air update is definitely not worth an update over the mid-2013 models (it is just a minor refresh), but with the enhanced processors, price-drop on the entry level model, plus the remarkable battery life, flash speeds, performance, and USB 3/Thunderbolt connectivity from the earlier model, now is the best time to jump into the MacBook Air line (unless you want to wait for the Retina line).
