At A Glance

Apple's ultrathin laptop line continues to drop in price. The high-end MacBook Air costs $700 less than its predecessor, and this model features a faster processor. The high-end configuration continues to offer a solid-state drive for storage.

If what you want out of your Mac laptop is the best combination of speed and price, the MacBook Air’s not for you. But if the specs that matter most to you are light weight and small size, the MacBook Air is the system for you. If the MacBook Air always appealed to you, but you were turned off by the price tag, it’s time to reconsider the Air, now that the price has been reduced.
