MacBook Air 11" Early 2015
There are some for whom even a 13-inch notebook is too big. The 11-inch MacBook Air, the least expensive and (nearly) smallest model in Apple's lineup, could be what those users are looking for. Although it weighs less than 2.5 pounds, the 11-inch Air now packs a 5th generation Core i5 processor and flash storage that's supposed to be twice as fast as what was inside the last model. Plus, this machine lasts more than 9 hours on a charge. But although it's inexpensive (for Apple), is the 11-inch Air the best value for space-conscious consumers?
