Storage
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.

E 'Ngoe: Mokhoa oa tšebetso.

Mokhoa oa tšebetso
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.

Leha ho le joalo, 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.

Apple Macbook Air iOS

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.

E 'Ngoe: Performance, betri.

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. Leha ho le joalo, for heavy duty work like regular video editing and processing or CAD, we’d advise going for the Macbook Pro or desktop models.

Battery
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, kapa 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.

Ka bokhutšoane
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 dilepothopo. Leha ho le joalo, bareki savvy ka 'na batla ho ema ho ho fihlela hoetla ho fumana matsoho a bona leqepheng la Macbook Air matha ya Mavericks lokolloa ha OS X. limithara

The Bad
Waiting for Mavericks, no Retina display.
