There hasn’t been a lot of excitement surrounding this Apple release especially because the new MacBook Air machines arrive with no design changes whatsoever. There are some changes under the hood, most notable being the use of Haswell processors. Moreover, Apple has chipped away $100 from the prices of all new models, making them all the more affordable and lucrative for the consumers.

Both the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air models arrive with a 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor together with 4GB of RAM. The low-end versions pack 128GB of internal storage while higher-end models offer 256GB storage space. However, if you are ready to shell out more cash, you have the option of tuning up the configurations of these 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air machines all the way up to 1.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 chip, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage.

Battery life of both models has also been significantly improved. While Apple claimed 8 to 9 hours of iTunes movie playback with the previous line-up, this fresh line-up comes with 10 to 12 hours of such playback.

The baseline model of the 11-inch MacBook Air costs $899 while that of the 13-inch Macbook Air machines comes at $999. The higher-end model of the 11-inch MacBook Air with base configurations is priced at $1099 while that of the 13-inch counterpart costs $1199. You can purchase these new models from Apple Store.
