Everyone knew that we would be seeing a new and improved MacBook air at WWDC. The super slim laptop is a mainstay in the world that is gradually moving towards hybrids and combination laptops and it’s not going anywhere. With the brand new 2013 MacBook Airs comes the expected upgrade to the brand new Haswell chip from Intel and in turn Apple is claiming some very interesting battery life numbers. Featuring both new new i5 and i7 processors, the 11inch MacBook Air will get an average battery life of 9 hours and the 13inch MacBook Air will get an astonishing 12 hours. Of course, the proof is in the pudding with real world testing to be done. With the new processors, the graphics will also get an upgrade with the Intel 5000 chip that should lead to up to 40% better graphics power.
On top of the new processors, the new MacBook Air’s will also be getting the new 802.11ac cards that will support much faster transfer speeds to supported devices. Storage wise, gone is the piddly 64GB SSD in the 11inch model and now it will be 128GB as standard with up to 256GB on the 13incher.
