Briefly: Laptop Mag tests MacBook Air, Wrappers debut new MBA sleeves
Mark Spoonaur of Laptop Mag published his <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287682==http://www.laptopmag.com/apple-macbook-air-13-inch-2013.aspx" rel='nofollow'>thoughts</a> on the latest 13-inch MacBook Air model Tuesday, giving the product four out of five stars. <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287680==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/06/11/bigger.capacity.battery.dual.mics.samsung.provided .storage/" rel='nofollow'>Battery life</a> topped the list of favorable attributes as the MacBook Air lasted 9 hours and 34 minutes in Laptop's tests, a full hour and a half longer than its predecessor. In spite of not having the coveted Retina screen resolution, its screen's clarity and brightness was still praised. The 13-inch Air is one of the first ultraportable laptops to include HD5000 graphics, allowing for a high enough performance that gaming is feasible. In <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287681==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/06/11/apple.trades.cpu.performance.for.power.savings/" rel='nofollow'>benchmark</a> tests, the Air proved to be faster than the previous model, though some Windows 8 notebooks remain faster. <br />
