PCQuest - - COVERSTORY -

The Ap­ple Macbook Air 13 with its stun­ning uni­body de­sign looks sim­i­lar to Macbook Air 11. It also boasts of an Alu­minium body with dust and smudge free matte fin­ish, how­ever, at 1.3 kg it weighs a lit­tle more and at 12.8x8.94x0.68 inches, is a lit­tle big­ger than its smaller coun­ter­part. Macbook Air 13 has two uSB ports, one thun­der­bolt port, one SD card slot, power port and a head­phone jack. The key­board is fol­lowed by a quick to re­spond big multi-touch­pad with wide rest­ing space on both sides. Be­neath the stun­ning ex­te­rior, Macbook Air 13 has a real livewire with In­tel’s cut­tingedge Core i5 pro­ces­sors, a valu­able up­grade over its pre­de­ces­sor, which ran on In­tel’s Core 2 Duo pro­ces­sor and was priced be­yond many folks’ reach.

Macbook Air 13 boasts of a stun­ning bright dis­play with a na­tive res­o­lu­tion of 1440x900 pix­els, ren­der­ing vi­su­als clear and sharp. The glossy dis­play has also been im­proved with an an­tire­flec­tive coat­ing to avoid it from shin­ing un­der bright light. Its bat­tery lasted six hours and is a sig­nif­i­cant boost for trav­el­ing work­ers, who can eas­ily lug it in their suit­cases with other stuff. Be­sides hav­ing Core i5 pro­ces­sor and 4gB RAM, the new Air fea­tures In­tel HD graph­ics 4000.

Rs 89k is a fairly de­cent price given the qual­ity and weight it car­ries in its light body. Also, it is avail­able with 1 year lim­ited war­ranty.

Bottomline: The MacBook Air 13 is an ex­cel­lent up­date to MacBook Air se­ries with an ex­cel­lent de­sign. It’s a must have for ul­tra-book seek­ers, who travel light and se­cure.
