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

At WWDC 2013, Apple provided a fairly major update to the MacBook Air. Unlike the 2012 release, however, the latest MacBook Air model is not exclusively about speed performance. It is about battery performance. The new 11 inch model can stay booted up for an average of 9 hours, while the 13 inch model is seeing benchmarks of 12 hours. To go with the better battery, the new models include faster RAM and flash drives. With up to 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD this is a killer laptop for daily use by just about everyone. Rumors: We are expecting an update to the MacBook Air at some point in the future that includes a Retina display. There haven’t been many rumors pointing to other possible enhancements to the MacBook Air, though the current form-factor is now over two years old.

Our recommendation:

Recommend
This MacBook air is a component upgrade. Faster SSD, more RAM, and USB 3. If you're thinking about an Apple laptop, this is a great one. For those looking to upgrade from the previous generation, it would be a harder sell.
