Macbook Air

What if the next MacBook Air were lighter than an iPad?

Someone gave me a cold for CES this year — how nice of them! — so I've been getting up obnoxiously early this week. Today, I thought I'd use some of that time to muse on Tuesday's Retina MacBook Air rumor from 9to5Mac. Senior editor Mark Gurman's source purports that the next MacBook Air will merge the 11- and 13-inch models into a single ultrathin 12-inch model with — get this — a single lonely USB-C port.

Now, before I go any further, I'm going to note that Gurman wrote and mocked up the machine based on an internal prototype, so it's entirely possible that Apple's next MacBook Air will look nothing like this. But if it did, well... it'd sure be an interesting in-between for folks who don't want to work on an iPad, huh?

Microsoft on the Apple attack again with Lenovo Yoga Pro 3 ad

Apple's products get almost as much coverage in Microsoft ads these days as they do in Apple's own, and this latest effort is no exception. The newest spot features the MacBook Air and the new Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. While short, it's not quite so ridiculous as some previous ads, and does at least focus more on the actual strengths of the device in question.

But it leaves out anything related to the respective operating systems.

iPad Air 2 vs. MacBook Air: Which Apple ultra-portable should you get?

Apple has two products designated as "Air", the MacBook Air, updated last June with the latest generation Intel Haswell processors, and the brand new iPad Air 2, introduced in October with a custom Apple A8X chipset. Both are ultra light, super thin, and have insanely great battery life, but one has a keyboard and runs OS X and the other a multitouch and iOS. Both can be absolutely killer on a plane, in an office, or around the house. But which one is better for you?
