MacBook Air in 2013

The good news is that all models of Macbook Air are having same processor and they have a 11 or 13 inch screen. Hence deciding how to select a MacBook Air is little bit confusing here we are going to give you some to choose a best suited model for you.The four models of MacBook Air 2013 differ only in the size of the screen and the amount of storage and all of them have the same processor (Intel Core i5-4250U 1.3GHz) and the same graphics chip (the Intel HD Graphics 5000). Hence it is not possible to choose one model over the other based on performance, and all are all the same in this regard. This parameter has nevertheless lost importance over the years. The MacBook Air has always been powerful enough for most everyday tasks like web browsing or office. For several generations, they may even face more intensive tasks: many users logically make MacBook Air their primary system. Of course, a MacBook Air will never be a gamer machine, but the new graphics chip allows them to run more than games from iOS or older titles. Of course, a MacBook Air will never be a graphics workstation, but it does not have major problems with Aperture or Lightroom on the ground. And of course, a MacBook Air is always a great "digital typewriter." If however you are looking for maximum power in a small footprint, take a look at the processor option. Core i5 is then replaced by a Core i7-4650U 1.7GHz able to climb to 3.3 GHz peak and therefore face Xcode, larger photos in Aperture or even footage in FCP X. For the first time, this option offers the good qualities of the MacBook Air: the price-performance ratio remains the same (12% more expensive, you get a machine 12% faster) and autonomy remains excellent.

The screen size is now more than ever a key factor in choosing a MacBook Air, since all are of equal configuration, it is not quite the same thing with an 11-inch MacBook Air and a MacBook Air 13 inches. The 11-inch MacBook Air is obviously more mobile, smaller and lighter than 13 inches. Its screen has a higher than the MacBook Pro 13-inch (1366 x 768 px) definition, but its 16:9 aspect ratio is a bit narrow in height. It is a little less comfortable and first made for the road with eight hours of battery life. However, do not forget that you can connect a MacBook Air to an external display (Thunderbolt / DisplayPort or HDMI / DVI / VGA via adapter). The MacBook Air 13-inch is a little more traditional: a full size keyboard and trackpad are as comfortable as those of the MacBook Pro. And a screen 1440 x 900 pixel is defined as the 13-inch MacBook Pro! It is a machine and all terrain use. It actually takes the place of the iBook or MacBook in the role of the machine quite capable, but no frills, at a reasonable price and with exceptional battery life of 12 hours.

While most of the MacBook Pro and iMac come with 8 GB of RAM, the MacBook Air comes with 4 GB of RAM. Apple sells its very expensive RAM, but you have no choice but to buy from it: the MacBook Air RAM modules are welded. Maybe if your budget is limited, choose staffing memory than storage. The SSD MacBook Air anyway narrow and require the use of external storage, so as to make the most economical choice and more beneficial in the long term. Again, you can never increase the RAM of the MacBook Air, then you will have no trouble to change his cap SSD or to add an external drive. Some probably expect Apple may finally decide to build the MacBook Air with a Retina display. It is true that the integrated graphics solutions make anything possible today, but this time Apple has special autonomy (up) and the price (down). Furthermore, the Retina large screens still suffer from problems of production and quality that still differs a little MacBook Air.
