  • The most expensive of the thin and light laptops we've tested recently, the 13in Apple MacBook Air will set you back the best part of a grand and a half. This makes it a sizeable investment, but one you're unlikely to regret – the build quality is phen...

  • Glossy panel with inaccurate colours, Low gaming capacity, Tends to heat up, Poor connectivity
  • Bigger, more powerful and with a higher battery life than its 11.6-inch version, the MacBook 13.3-inch represents one of the - if not the - best choices for those looking for a powerful, mobile machine. Note however that a richer connectivity wouldn't ...
