MacBook Air and Macbook Pro


First introduced in 2008, the MacBook Air originally represented Apple's first substantial re-entry into the subnotebook market in many years. Since it was first introduced, though, the MacBook Air became more powerful and capable and replaced the more "traditional" MacBook altogether in 2012. However, in 2015, the "regular" MacBook was re-introduced as an even smaller notebook than the MacBook Air.

What are all the differences between the "Early 2015" MacBook Air models? Which is the best choice for my needs?

Except for the display size and the size and weight differences, the standard "Early 2015" MacBook Air models -- the  MacBook Air - Core i5, 1.6, 11" (Early 2015)and the Core i5, 1.6, 13" (Early 2015) -- are pretty much identical to each another.

Likewise, the custom processor configurations -- the MacBook Air the Core i7, 2.2, 11" (Early 2015) and the Core i7, 2.2, 13" (Early 2015) -- vary from their respective stock models only by processor. 

However, there are some important external and internal differences. Additionally, as the models are so similar to each other (and earlier MacBook Air notebooks), identification details are particularly worthwhile, too.
