That said, we found absolutely no difference between the current and the model of the MacBook Air in terms of noise. The same was true for temperatures. We did not expect the newer model to behave any differently from the older one, and we were right. Under medium load, the case remained comfortably cool. Only after a prolonged period of high load did it warm up significantly around the rear parts of the keyboard close to the hinges.
Unfortunately, when compared to the smaller MacBook 12, the Air did not perform very well. Mids and highs are much more pronounced on the MacBook 12, and so are lows bass to a lesser degree. Nevertheless, the speakers were not half bad and are okay for listening to music in mostly quiet environments. Its maximum noise level of 78 dB A places it mid-field among its competitors. Once again, the i5-model performed very similar to the previously tested i7-model.
Not only has its extra MHz bumped the performance, but also increased power consumption, which has made it ever so slightly less power efficient than the previous i7-model. We ran our real-world Wi-Fi test of at nits display brightness with the model, and it lasted almost 20 minutes longer than its predecessor.
Thus, you can expect to be able to browse the web for more than 10 consecutive hours, something the MacBook Pro 13 fails at, and even the MacBook 12 ran out of juice almost minutes before the new MacBook Air. Years go by, yet the MacBook Air remains unchanged year after year after year. The most significant changes in notebook design of the last few years, such as higher display resolutions, thinner bezels, and larger displays in similarly sized cases, have all gone unnoticed by the Air.
The biggest issue we have with the new MacBook Air 13 is its display. With its low-resolution TN panel, it certainly feels very outdated overall. A very well-built and high-quality aluminum case combined with decent input devices; more than decent Wi-Fi performance; overall very good system performance that is well suited for its intended use scenarios; more than 10 hours of battery life; and last but not least a dead silent user experience.
Even in , all these aspects are worthy of praise. Still, all things considered the MacBook Air 13 is still a very decent notebook. Mind you, it is the entry-level model for entering the Apple universe, and therefore the cheapest alternative if you prefer MacOS to Windows. And while it is highly unlikely that the MacBook Air is going to get yet another update in , Apple has managed to surprise us quite often already …. Apple MacBook Air Simon Leitner.
