“The newest Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (Mid-2013) lasted an astonishing 15-and-a-half hours on a battery test that makes most current mainstream ultrabooks and ultraportables cough and die after four to six hours,” Santo Domingo reports. “The fact that the system gives up very little if any day-to-day performance is astounding.”
Santo Domingo reports, “This isn’t a low-powered slate tablet that gives up computing performance in exchange for battery life. With the latest MacBook Air 13-inch, you have a fully functional ultraportable laptop with extremely long battery life, as it should be. If you need to do real work on a plane, train, or out in the field, get a MacBook Air 13-inch. It’s our new Editors’ Choice winner for mainstream ultraportable laptops.”
