Laptop Mag's Mark Spoonaur gives 13-inch MBA 4 out of 5 stars

Mark Spoonaur of Laptop Mag published his thoughts on the latest 13-inch MacBook Air model Tuesday, giving the product four out of five stars. Battery life 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 benchmark tests, the Air proved to be faster than the previous model, though some Windows 8 notebooks remain faster.

Linen laptop sleeve accessories for MacBook Air available from UK's Wrappers

Wrappers, a UK electronics accessories company, has launched its linen laptop sleeve for the MacBook Air 2013, priced at $40, shipping included. Peach skin linen used, according to Wrappers, tends to be two to three times stronger than cotton, and is a natural alternative to a comparable synthetic material. Laptop sleeves are available in 15 colors.
