The device comes with an Intel dual-core Core i5-3317U processor, one which is clocked at 1.7GHz with 3MB L3 cache. There's also 4GB of RAM, part of which is shared with the onboard graphics unit, the Intel HD 4000, which indicates that the CPU is an Ivy-Bridge model.

Other features include 64GB of onboard storage, an 11.6in 1,366 x 768 pixel display, Mac OS X Lion 10.7, two USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a Thunderbolt port, Facetime HD camera and up to five hours battery life. It weighs just over 1Kg which just as light as some first generation tablets we got our hands on.

The price drop represents a near 13 per cent decrease on Apple's suggested retail price. You can check out our review of the Apple MacBook Air 11.6in (late 2012 version) here.
