The biggest reason Microsoft has started targeting the MacBook Air

In case you haven’t been paying attention, there’s been a noticeable shift in the way Microsoft has been promoting its Surface line of tablets — instead of pitting it against the iPhone like it’s traditionally done, it’s started pitting it against the MacBook Air.

Retina MacBook Air coming soon, as larger ‘iPad Pro’ gets delayed

Apple is going to start 12-inch MacBook Air mass-production next quarter, Digitimes has learned from sources familiar with the matter, with Quanta Computer apparently being entrusted with assembling the new MacBook Air model.

Of course, the deals being offered for 2013’s MacBook Airs are even better and you can get an entry-level 11.6-inch model for just $759.99 and an entry-level 13-inch model for $854.99.
