MacBook Air the Ultimate Laptop

Technology writer Nilay Patel of The Verge takes a close look at Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air, which he calls “the best overall laptop on the market.” He notes that “the backlit keyboard is solid-feeling and comfortable, and Apple’s multitouch glass trackpad remains leaps and bounds ahead of the Windows competition.” But it’s the long-lasting battery that he appreciates most. Patel describes getting over 12 hours of battery life during his tests, “the record for a laptop running our test without an external battery.” Patel concludes, “The new Air is the first of a dramatic new breed of computer — it lets you set up a mobile office for a full day without concern for power.”
