Apple's new MacBook Air ad shows off a ton of stickers that can be used to give your, in some cases well-loved, Mac some custom, cartoon, cultural, or just plain crazy flare. So, if you see one that catches your attention, that you think would look simply smashing on the back of your MacBook Air, where can you get it?
The MacBook Air is a pretty awesome piece of equipment and Apple knows it. A new commercial has hit the airwaves and it proclaims the MacBook Air is the "notebook people love". While it might not be the preferred laptop in Apple's lineup for everyone, those who have one generally don't hesitate to share how much they love the MacBook Air.
If you have a mid-2011 MacBook Air and have been experiencing issues with the system taking longer to wake from sleep than expected or your fans run at full speed when after waking device up, Apple has now made available a new EFI update that aims to address those problems.
Intel today announced a new family of Core M "Broadwell" processors that will help make hardware even thinner. The MacBook Air is already pretty darn thin — the thinnest Mac available, in fact — but the design hasn't seen a substantial update since 2010. That's a long time, long enough for Apple's Windows-based competitors to develop so-called ultrabooks that are able to compete handily on specs, portability, and battery life. The MacBook Air has improved a lot since the 2010 redesign, yes, but we've been looking forward to the release of Broadwell, which has promised to cut down on unnecessary space taken up by cooling solutions without compromising on power and the next-gen Core M chips will further help manufacturers.
There's a story going around about Apple working on ARM-based Macs. In other words, Macs that, instead of Intel chipsets, use the same kind of Apple A7-style chipsets found in the iPhone and iPad. The story is nothing new. ARM-based Macs, touchscreen Macs, iOS Macs, Retina Macs... Apple prototypes pretty much anything and everything any reasonable person would expect them to. A thousand no's for every yes requires a very high prototype to product ratio, after all...
There's an old cliche that it takes Microsoft three tries to really nail a product. Like most cliches it's as true as it is untrue, but with the just announced Surface Pro 3 it really does look like Microsoft finally understands their product and its position in the mobile device spectrum. Because of that, it also looks like Microsoft is changing targets from the iPad to the MacBook Air. So what does that mean?
The new, less expensive MacBook Air is tempting. But is Apple planning to release a Retina MacBook Air, and if so, should you wait?
Apple refreshed the MacBook Air this week, bumping processor speeds modestly and dropping the price $100. Meanwhile, rumors abound that Apple is working on a new laptop model, possibly a MacBook Air with Retina display. Is now the right time to buy a MacBook Air, or should you wait to see what shakes out of the Apple tree?

It's been a while since we've seen a substantial refresh of the MacBook Air, and while there's one pegged to land tomorrow, it won't be a substantial one either. Instead we're looking at a slight update, with Apple swapping out the last-generation Intel Haswell processors for the current-generation Intel Haswell processors. Yes, it's a mammoth update.
