Apple has just updated its online store with a new version of the MacBook Air, featuring a faster processor.

But before you get too excited there isn't much else to speak of. No Retina display is a noticeable omission from the fruit giant.

The speed bump isn't huge either, offering a 1.4GHz Core i5 Haswell CPU, as opposed to the top end 1.3GHz offering of 2013. That does mean a Turbo Boost speed of 2.7GHz rather than the previous 2.6GHz.

Everything else is the same: 4GB of RAM, 128 or 256GB SSDs, a 1,440 x 900 resolution display, Intel HD 5000 graphics, Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 and SDXC card reader, and the usual 11-inch or 13-inch models.

The speed bump has been applied to all the MacBook Air models and the price has dropped by up to £100, starting at £750 and going up to £1000 for the top end model.
