A friend of mine is willing to sell me her Macbook Air from 2011 for about $500. I currently use a MacMini that is from early 2010 and I am looking to upgrade. Ideally, I want a MacBook Pro but that won't be in my budget for a good while. I don't know much about the MacBook Air. Would this be an upgrade? Is it a decent computer? Any input/info about the MacBook Air would be appreciated because I just don't know much about it.

What are the specs on the MBA you might buy?

Yes the 2011 regardless of specs is a step up.

The i series chips in them are worth it and are vastly superior to the cpu's even just a generation before.

A friend of mine is willing to sell me her Macbook Air from 2011 for about $500...

...is it the 11" or the 13", does it have 2Gb RAM or 4Gb Ram, is the SSD 64Gb?

I'm assuming all the specs are base line so while $500 seems inexpensive there has to be a reason she's selling it seemingly cheap...

I have to double check which model. I would think that it would be the base model. She bought it for her husband when she thought he would be commuting on the metro for work.
