MacBook Air get 2013 refresh with Haswell

Apple has introduced its new MacBook Air range at WWDC 2013, and as predicted, the new line comes loaded with Intel's newest Haswell 4th-gen Core processor, promising a better battery life.

Apple promises all-day battery, while WiFi is also upgraded to 802.11ac which gives it up to three times the performance.

It will be available in 11-inch and 13-inch guises, offering up longer battery life of 9 hours and 12 hours respectively.

Yeah, yeah, let's talk bucks

The 11-inch model will start at $999 (around £640, AU$1055) for the 128GB version and $1199 (around £1260, AU$) if you fancy 256GB - which is cheaper than previous MacBook Airs.
