MacBook Air

No, it hasn’t yet earned its Retina display, but Apple’s upgraded MacBook Air is still on the top of our ultrabook list. The anorexic notebook retains its current casing but now features an Intel Haswell 1.3GHz dual-core i5 processor, 4GB of power-sipping LPDDR3 RAM, ultrafast 128GB to 256GB PCI Express solid state drives, plus 802.11ac Wi-Fi support. The result (i.e. features that matter to you) is both significantly increased performance and battery life – up to 9 hours in the 11-inch model and 12-hours for the 13-inch.
