What are the main differences? Is it worth the money getting the 2013 over the 2012?

I feel like no one ever does any research these days. :(

Thanks. Sounds from your link like there's not much in it.

Better graphics, battery life, and a new wi-fi standard--that was enough to push me to the 2013 model. Dual mics are a nice touch too. I teach online and the extra mic for lectures, Skype, and FaceTime are a welcome addition.

No need to when people like the OP can get others to do it for them.

I had assumed he meant personal opinions.

Yet... he got spec sheets. :rolleyes:

:rolleyes: Please. He asked for differences. There are no personal opinions about changes in specs. Your winning post suggests you have neither a personal opinion on the machine nor a technical fact to state. I have to wonder why you have an issue with this at all. If you can do better then please, do better. That goes for just about anything in life.

If there is a price drop then it is worth getting the 2013 model. /shrug

Ok maybe I should have been more specific with my opening question. My choice is this:

2012 MBA 256GB 8GB RAM refurbished

2013 MBA 256GB 4GB RAM new

Same price. Is it worth getting the 2013 model? I wouldn't be doing anything intensive like gaming or video editing.

Opinions or specs both welcome.

The batter life and gpu make it worth it. I would go for the new model.
