Leave-In Compact SD Cards Boost Your MacBook's Storage Capacity

The MacBook Air's incredibly thin form factor is made possible largely in part by its use of a solid-state drive — or SSD — instead of a more traditional and thicker hard drive with moving parts.

Does this mean we're holding it right after all? Read More >>

13-Inch MacBook Air (2013) Review: Well Hello, Battery Life

Apple's MacBook Air has kinda been the ultimate ultrabook since before Intel trademarked Ultrabook. The 2013 Air keeps the oft-praised body of last year's Air, but with Intel's next-gen Haswell processor stuck inside. The result? Battery life and performance to absolutely die for. Read More >>

MacBook Air 2013 Teardown: So Much Battery

12 hours of battery life on the 2013 MacBook Air is simply ridiculous (though it's also sort of ridiculous that it's ridiculous). iFixit's task force took apart this year's MBA, which is pretty identical to last year's MBA, to see what's new and how it can squeeze so much juice. Read More >>

Does Apple Have an iPad Pro or Convertible MacBook Air Up Its Sleeve?

Tim Cook might have mocked the idea of a convertible MacBook-come-tablet, but a recently awarded patent shows that at least Apple's thinking about the idea. Could Apple have an iPad-Macbook Air crossover to take on the Microsoft Surface Pro in the pipeline? Read More >>

Which One Has More Usable Space: the 128GB Surface Pro or the 128GB MacBook Air?

Everyone's been making fun of the Surface Pro for being so stingy on hard drive space. The 128GB version of the Surface Pro only has 90GB of free space (originally reported to be 83GB but since boosted). Where the hell did the other 38 gigs go? Well, you could ask the same question to the 128GB version of the MacBook Air. The MBA only has 92GB of free space. What! Read More >>
