Apple quietly refreshed its ultra-slim MacBook Air today with a new, marginally faster processor. Each model has also received a $100 price cut; the 11-inch variant now starts from $899, while the 13-inch model starts from $999.

The MacBook Air now features a 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5, which is a fraction more powerful than the 1.3GHz version that was fitted before. The latest version also offers a higher Turbo Boost speed; 2.7GHz rather than 2.6GHz for improved over-clocking.

The rest of the MacBook Air remains unchanged. It still boasts the same sleek, aluminium unibody design and 4GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 5000 and either 128 GB or 256GB of flash storage. Still, if you’re in the market for a razor-thin laptop the MacBook Air is just as tempting as before. Unless, of course, you’re still waiting for Apple to release a Retina Display model.
