It’s still got the same unmatched trackpad response, comfortable
backlit keyboard and sturdy aluminum build. The 11-inch version
costs $899 and has 9 hours of battery life, but I’d suggest going
for the $999 13-inch version if you need more screen and keyboard
real estate, an SD card slot and 12 hours of battery life. Even if
you double the internal storage to 256GB and double the RAM to
8GB, the total cost is still $1,299.
My verdict: If you need a new laptop, this is the one to buy,
especially with the $100 price cut. In fact, that’s been my
verdict on the Air for several years. I’ve never met a better
laptop. And I’ve met a lot of laptops.
