Review: 2011 13-inch MacBook Air

We review the greatly sped up 13-inch MacBook Air

The redesigned MacBook Air in October 2010 sparked a minor revolution in notebooks; after years of ultraportables (even Apple's) being relegated to the margins, they were suddenly the future of computing. Intel went so far as to coin a new notebook concept, the "ultrabook," to spur Windows PC builders to do what Apple was doing. But with stiff competition emerging from Samsung, Sony, and even ASUS, Apple has had to step up its game with a much faster processor and Thunderbolt for desktop-level external storage. We'll see in our review of the 2011 13-inch MacBook Air if it's enough to keep the lead -- and possibly to replace traditional notebooks.

    I guess I'll never understand...

    ... why you guys always insist on these teaser pages with links to the reviews rather than going directly to the actual review pages themselves from the front page. Annoying as h***.
