The Apple MacBook Air 13″ 2012 edition is  a bestselling 2012 laptop from Apple that received positive reviews for it’s stunningly thin and lightweight design, exceptional battery life,  snappy boot times, top quality touchpad, and great audio quality along with a $100 price cut on the previous years model and improved hardware performance. On the down side some reviewers cited a low display resolution, average graphics performance, lack of storage, and not many aesthetic changes the 2011 models as potential pitfalls. All in all the Macbook Air of 2012 continues Apples legacy of streamlined ultra-slick (albeit pricey) laptops.

    This year's MacBook Air opts for gradual improvements rather than anything revolutionary, but lowered prices continue to make it the go-to mainstream recommendation for any MacBook owner-to-be.

    If you bought last year's Air, I'm not sure there's enough here to make you want to upgrade, but if you're in the market for a new laptop and don't need the power (or the price tag) of the new Pro, you'd be hard-pressed to do better than the Air.

    Apple has updated what was already one of the better ultraportable laptops on the market to keep it competitive, with a downright impressive set of specification upgrades and (in theory) some of the best connectivity going thanks to its dual USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt combination.
