I have a Late 2010 MacBook Air. After 2.5 years, it’s still going strong. Recently, I started looking into the latest, 2013 Macbook Air. From the external perspective, it looks exactly the same. It’s the same dimension, same weight, and the same sleek design. What’s change is what’s in the inside.
The new 2013 MacBook Air has a newer OS, faster CPU, faster SSD, more memory, faster Wi-Fi with the integrated 802.11ac adapter, faster USB with USB 3.0, long-lasting battery up to 14 hours, a backlit keyboard, and dual integrated mics. Sounds like a winner to me.
The only big issue I’ve heard with the newer MacBook Airs is the Wi-Fi issues with the new 802.11ac adapters. That’s a major one. I predict that this would be rectified eventually with future software updates. Maybe, it’s worth waiting a bit longer until Apple fixes the problem.
