Actually both the 2013 and 2014 use the Haswell chips. The 2014 model runs slightly faster (1.4 vs 1.3 and in boost mode 2.7 vs 2.6). 2014 battery life improvements were a result of OSX changes(mavericks vs mountain lion). The 2014 model price was reduced. If you go here: http://www.everymac.com/mac-identification/index-how-to-identify-my-mac.html you can find more detailed info on these models as well as older models (other mac products as well).
Does MacBook have a feature to where it can be locked using a locking device such a cable lock? Jul 3, 2014
There is no integrated Kensington lock adapter on the Macbook Air, at least not the 2014 model. You can buy a security dock, such as this one http://www.amazon.com/Kensington-SafeDock-Security-13-Inch-K67759AM/dp/B008M11WT2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407360613&sr=8-1&keywords=macbook+air+kensington+lock . There may be some other solution to lock it, but I am not aware of it.

is it good for games May 20, 2014
Here is a video of the 2012 Macbook Air playing Borderlands 2 http://youtu.be/RhNrs5TxSCo. Keep in mind that this is the 2012 air with only the HD4000 graphics. Are you going to get 1080P graphics with anti-aliasing etc...? No, but you can certainly game on it, if you are ok with playing at low/medium settings.There is also a video of Diablo being played on last years Macbook Air at 1080P output to an HDTV http://youtu.be/IS4zmUULVwk. If you are a hardcore gamer opt for something else, but if you want a great little computer that can handle a reasonable gaming load, then the Air is it.

Should I get this one or last year's Macbook Pro? (I don't work with video or image editing programs.) Dec 20, 2014
If you will be on the go often, you should get the MacBook Air due to its great battery life of 12 hours! If you want something that's durable and doesn't have a horrible screen, get the MacBook Pro from last year.
