Along with introduction of the new 11-inch MacBook Air, Apple also updated the 13-inch MacBook Air last month. Like the 11-inch model, the new 13-inch also got solid state flash storage, higher resolution (1440 x 900) screen, faster NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics and thinner profile (0.11-inches at its thinnest and 0.68-inches at its thickest). Additionally, the 13-inch model also brings SD card slot and faster processor.

Two pre-configured 13-inch MacBook Air models are available including – the 1.86GHz 13-inch MacBook Air with 2GB of memory and 128GB of flash storage priced $1,299, and a 256GB model priced $1,599. Configure-to-order options include faster 2.13GHz processor for $100 and 4GB RAM for another $100.

Like the 11-inch model, reviews of the 13-inch have been very positive because of its thinner and lighter profile with fast startup and application launch times. Sarah and Jonathan of Computer Shopper concluded their review by writing “The 2010 MacBook Air is well worth buying—and we haven’t always felt that way about the MacBook Air. If you're a Mac loyalist (or a curious potential Mac adopter) looking for an exquisitely designed thin machine, you've found your new best friend. Its stunning design, loads of screen space, powerful performance, and durability make it a winning ultraportable. And the bundled new iLife '11 suite makes it that much more attractive for on-the-go professionals or media manipulators.”
