Perhaps overshadowed by Apple’s introduction of the new 12” Retina MacBook, the 11” and 13” MacBook Air models were also given some attention at yesterday’s Spring Forward event – but to much less fanfare.
We were able to get our hands on the new 2015 MacBook Air models and performed a teardown on both and ran benchmarks on the 13″ model which featured a 4 lane PCIe SSD. (See our unboxing of the 2015 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina display here.)
Check out what we found below:
