I just bought a used 13" MBA with a 1.86Ghz CPU, 2GB RAM, and 256GB SSD for $1,175 in like new condition. It has the original box and everything that came with it. Is that a good deal? :confused:

Thinking I'll keep it till May (end of the semester) then sell it in anticipation of a updated model with Lion this summer. Think I can get all my money back in May?

Thank you in advance!:)

there is a 4 gig on the refurb store with 256 GB SSD for $1549, and since the 2-4GB of ram upgrade is $100, I'd say its a VERY good deal. Apples is totally warranteed as well as upgrading to Apple Care for an additional 2
Don't know about yours, i assume you can get AC

I bought a refurbished MBA 1.86/4GB RAM/128 GB SSD for $1189 from the Apple store last week. With taxes it came to $1305.

This is killing me!!!
I don't NEED one just yet, but boy do I want one.
But I just KNOW a i3/5/7 something model is coming out soon (maybe June?)

And it prob will have that damn backlit keyboard too.

Do I get one now or wait?

PS- I know that if I wait, it won't be out in june.

I feel your pain man. Especially the "PS" portion. That describes my luck perfectly lol
