Editor’s Pick

Apple MacBook Air

On the surface, the 2013 MacBook Air looks like last year’s, but under the hood there were a few important changes that took this laptop from good to great.

The new MacBook Air has new battery technology, as well as Intel’s Fourth-Generation Core (known as Haswell), means that the MacBook Air can go all day and into the night, with 13- to 14-hour battery times being measured. That’s far and away an award-worthy development!

Congratulations to Apple for sweeping this year’s awards!
