More power, lower prices, and a quirk-free keyboard get the crowd-pleasing laptop back to its original recipe for success. But where will the Air go next?
Back in 2010, Apple released one of the most practical, likable products in its history: a second-generation MacBook Air that fixed all the notable downsides of the original 2008 version of the wedge-shaped thin-and-light notebook. I bought one and became a happy customer. And I had lots of company: the 13″-screen machine and its successors became the de facto laptop of choice for everybody from college students to Silicon Valley types.
