IZVORNA Apple Macbook Air etablirala kao mjerilo za tankih i laganih prijenosnika, a sa svojim nadogradnju na Intel Core čipovima u 2011 to je dobio porast kod ponašanja koji odgovara njegovom elegantan dizajn i izgradnju.

Najnoviji 13in model koji je Apple pokrenuo u lipnju je manje-više isti izvana kao 2011 izdanje, osim dodavanja dva mikrofona na lijevoj strani. U međuvremenu, OS X Lion je ažuriran kako bi Mountain Lion – iako ćete morati pričekati do jeseni da se držite MacBook Air trčanje najnoviji Mavericks verziju – ali Apple je napravio neke tweaks da bi dobili više soka iz stroja.

Pokušavali smo iz Macbook Air Core i5 1.3GHz 13in model sa 4 GB RAM-a da li Apple baterija obećava živjeti do očekivanja, pomogao procesor iz Intelove najnovije Haswell arhitekturi procesora nego prethodnih Ivy Bridge i Sandy Bridge čipova.

Graditi i dizajn
13in Macbook Air ne sasvim zadovoljiti lagana vjerodajnice svog 11in malog brata ili sestre, ali to je još uvijek jedan od najtanjih i najlakših prijenosnika oko, dijelom zahvaljujući flash pohranu.

Mjeri 325x227x17mm i teži samo 1,35 kg, dodao nešto manje od 300g u odnosu na 11in 1.08kg modela, i širenje po samo 25mm u širinu i 33 mm u dubinu. Čak i uz porast Ultrabooks od Apple je izdao prvi ovaj laptop prije nekoliko godina, PC izrađivač su se mučili da smanje težinu i veličinu, zadržavajući pristojan performanse i trajanje baterije po razumnoj cijeni.

Iako je 13in Macbook Air je štap tanak i lagan, Kvaliteta izrade je vrhunska i vrlo čvrst, dok je unibody dizajn daje laptopa gladak, high-end pogled. Apple je uključen 79-ključ otok tipkovnica s pozadinskim osvjetljenjem koji je dobro proporcionalna za ovaj 13in modela, s 12 funkcijske tipke i četiri tipke sa strelicama izložena u user-friendly formatu. Tipke imaju kratku udaljenost putovanja, što znači da je samo lagani dodir je potreban prilikom pisanja.

Drugo ključno područje gdje je Macbook Air nadilazi većinu svojih Windows temeljen kolegama je trackpad. Sama trackpad je ogroman, i više nego dovoljan za obavljanje prstom povučete i pitching geste udobno, što ga čini povjetarac za pomicanje gore, dolje i oko zaslona. Ali biti upozoren – nakon što ste navikli na podlozi, naći ćete ga teško unazaditi vratiti u normalan iskustva miša.

To je lako prilagoditi trackpad za rad na način na koji to želite, s opcijama za jedan, dva i tri klika prst, desnim klikom, kao i povlačenjem prema gore ili prema dolje po podlozi. Jedini pravi minus smo otkrili da je trackpad mogu dobiti glitchy – na primjer s desnim klikom funkcionalnosti – Jednom ste imali svoje MacBook Air za par godina ili više.

Prikaz
Prvi downside izaći na način da je, nažalost, Apple nije dodan Retina zaslon na MacBook Air. Retina ekrani nude do 2880×1800 Rezolucija o 15in MacBook Pro modele, isporuku više zaslona nekretnina zapanjujućih boja i definiciju. Međutim, dodajući Retina bi vjerojatno dodani trošak za MacBook Air i smanjen vijek trajanja baterije.

13in bez Retina zaslon na MacBook Air nije unazaditi u usporedbi s drugim prijenosnicima, iako. Ona ima LED pozadinsko osvjetljenje, a dolazi s maksimalnom rezolucijom od 1440×900, u usporedbi s 1366×768 Maksimalna rezolucija o 11in modelu. Također možete lako promijeniti razlučivost na neku od unaprijed definiranih opcija, ovisno o vašim potrebama: 1280×800, 1152×720 a 1024×640 razlučivost po 16:10 omjer slike, ili 1024×768 800×600 razlučivost po 4:3 omjer slike.

Zaslon nudi oštre boje i svjetlinu, i nije baš odraz u usporedbi s mnogim prijenosnim modelima koje smo vidjeli, tako da neće doći na zaslonu odsjaj, osim na jakom suncu. Zaslon je visoke kvalitete za gledanje videa ili gledanje slika. Senzor za osvijetljenost prostora je također veliki touch jer automatski podešava svjetlinu zaslona i osvjetljenja tipkovnice, što znači da možete koristiti MacBook Air u mračnoj sobi i još uvijek lako vidjeti sve tipke i zaslon.

Luke
Anyone needing a laptop with lots of native connectivity should look elsewhere. The nearly paper-thin chassis simply doesn’t allow for a wide variety of ports.

On the left-hand side of the 13in Macbook Air, you’ll find the power connector, a USB port, headphone socket and dual microphones. Audio quality is decent on the Macbook Air, although if you’re planning on using the speakers regularly to watch films or TV, or for webconferencing, you’ll want to either invest in a comfortable pair of headphones or buy some extra speakers, as the maximum volume isn’t very loud.

On the right, Apple has added a second USB port, a single Thunderbolt connector and an SDXC card slot, something not offered on the 11in model.

The Macbook Air has been designed for portability, so it’s necessary to chop features like optical drives and even an Ethernet port. Međutim, for those not happy relying on WiFi connectivity, you can purchase an Ethernet adaptor to plug into the USB port, an accessory we’ve found handy over our years using the Macbook Air.

The addition of the Thunderbolt port goes some way towards mitigating the lack of others. Not only does the port provide transfer speeds that are up to 20 times faster than traditional USB, it also allows the Macbook Air to connect with VGA, HDMI, mini Display Port and DVI devices via adapters.

Nažalost, only a power cable is provided in the box, with everything else needing to be purchased as an optional extra.

Skladištenje
While the 11in Macbook Air received a storage upgrade with the latest batch of releasesthe 13in models were missed off the upgrade list, coming in the same 128GB and 256GB formats.

Sljedeći: Operacijski sustav.

Operacijski sustav
One downside of rushing out to buy a new Macbook Air right now is that it ships with Mac OS X 10.8.4 Mountain Lion, so when the Mavericks OS update comes out this autumn you’ll have to pay to upgrade. Mavericks will add several handy new features, including the ability to save and group files by tags rather than folders, and multiple monitor support.

Međutim, Mountain Lion is still a well-designed and user-friendly OS, and won’t take those new to Mac OS much time to get the hang of if they’re switching from a PC for the first time. This is something that can’t be said for users moving from older Windows versions to Windows 8, in our opinion.

Out of the box installation takes just a few minutes, and simply requires a Mac ID to be created, internet configured and then you’re off. You can also replicate content from an older Macbook onto the new model, which will make the process of getting all your files and favourites even smoother, although this will add time to the setup process.

Mountain Lion sticks with the multi-touch gestures seen in its predecessor. Swiping three fingers upwards on the trackpad activates Mission Control, which automatically rearranges the screen to display all programs in a bird’s eye view. Mission Control groups similar programs together so a specific webpage or document can be found easily in a raft of open windows.

Additional multi-touch functionality includes pinch to zoom, plus the ability to rotate images and swipe between apps using the trackpad. When using a webpage, it is also possible to swipe left and right to go backwards and forwards between the pages, another small but time-saving feature.

Unlike on a PC, users are required to swipe up with two fingers on the trackpad to move downwards on a page and vice versa, although this didn’t take long to get used to.

Notable additions in Mountain Lion include a Notification Center, which is accessed by tapping the newly added logo on the right-hand side of the screen or by swiping two fingers from left to right on the trackpad. Scroll up while in the Notifications Center and you’ll see a toggle button that enables you to switch on-screen alerts on and off, if you don’t fancy being bothered by a pop-up bubble every time you get a Twitter notification or email.

Apple’s iCloud is more deeply integrated into Mountain Lion, which is excellent news for Mac owners who have also forked out for an iPhone or iPad. Once you’ve signed in with your Apple ID, iCloud lets you pick and choose which services you want to sync, including Mail, Contacts, Calendars & Reminders, Notes, Safari, Photo Stream and Documents. Once you’ve selected your choices, Apple will begin syncing the data from your iOS devices onto your computer and vice versa.

Mountain Lion Icloud

In the latest version of the Safari browser, Apple catches up with Google Chrome with its Smart Search address bar and fast loading times. Its extended tabbed browsing and multi-touch gestures make flicking through multiple websites easier than ever, and its newsharingfeature is another nice addition, enabling users to share web pages via Twitter, email or iMessage. Our only complaint is the removal of RSS feeds from the web browser, and from the Mail application.

Sljedeći: Performance, baterija.

Performance
The upgrade to Intel Haswell architecture Core chips in the latest Macbook Air won’t give you a noticeable performance boost over previous Macbook Air models. We regularly use a 2011 Macbook Air, and this is more than capable of handling everyday tasks, and running resource-hogging apps like Adobe Indesign.

We tested the latest 13in model running an Intel Haswell based Core i5 dual-core 1.3GHz processor with 4GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory, which can be upgraded to an Intel Core i7 dual-core 1.7GHz processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz. Using the Macbook Air for a few weeks as our work machine, we found that the performance on offer was similar to that of older models. Applications are very quick to open, browsing the web is smooth and fast, and OS X is simple and easy to navigate around. Međutim, for heavy duty work like regular video editing and processing or CAD, we’d advise going for the Macbook Pro or desktop models.

Baterija
Where Haswell has made the difference is battery life. Apple devices typically come with excellent battery life and the latest Macbook Air improves even further on this, which is especially impressive for such a lightweight device.

Apple quotes up to 12 hours of wireless web access, ili 10 hours of iTunes film playback for the 13in Macbook Air from its built-in, 54Whr lithium-polymer battery. In our real-world tests, we were pretty happy with the battery life, especially compared with our 2011 11in model. With the energy settings set to default and auto adjust for brightness, we managed to get a full eight hours out of the 13in model, including two separate 30-minute periods in sleep.

This might not quite reach the heady heights of 12 hours as quoted by Apple, but we were running the Macbook Air in dual monitor format in pretty bright conditions, and running a range of multiple applications throughout the day. And compared with the three hours our 11in 2011 Macbook Air manages, eight hours is bliss.

In Short
Despite connectivity limitations, the design and raw power make the Macbook Air a worthwhile purchase for Apple users or those looking for a change from Windows. You can run any applications you’ll need for general day to day use, and the trackpad and Mac OS X make the Macbook Air a pleasure to use.

The good news for first-time Macbook Air purchasers is that they’ll be getting Intel Haswell based models at a cheaper price than the 2012 MacBook Air prijenosnika. Međutim, pamet kupci htjeti čekati do jeseni kako bi dobili svoje ruke na Macbook Air trčanje oslobađanje Mavericks za OS X. m

The Good
lak, slimline design, velik baterija život, affordable price.

The Bad
Waiting for Mavericks, no Retina display.
