A few years back I declared the 13″ MacBook Air the perfect notebook. With the recently released 2013 refresh, Apple just made the perfect notebook even better. They did it with one feature that has taken notebook computers to a new level–true all-day battery life.

Although I love the screens on these devices, the battery life improvements are so important to me due to the nature of my mobility that it is well worth the trade-off for me.

I’ve told many about these experiences and more over the past week and most have a hard time believing it. I even thought it was too good to be true when I first heard the claims. But after a week and a half with the new MacBook Air I can testify that this notebook more than delivers on its battery life claims.
