Missed opportunities ... Why didn't I get it...
I just need to be a little sad and mad about myself at the same time.
Today I found a used 2011 MBA 4GB RAM 11" on the local Craigslist (dubbizle) for approx US $ 400.00 and I was thinking the entire day if I should get it or not. One thing that kept me away was that my brand new 13" 8GB/128/i5 is coming soon and the fact that my wife would have killed me if I would have gotten another one.
But when I finally decided to call the guy the deal was gone, MBA sold. I think I could have gotten it, used it for 2-4 weeks and sold it for the same if not some more money afterwards.
So, I guess what I am trying to say is that if you guys had a similar experience you can post it here and try to make yourself better again.

Try buying a house or flat - getting gazumped or having a developer string you along or put the screws on you will put this into perspective.
And, most importantly.... Enjoy your 2012 MBA when it arrives!

I know what ou are talking about, apartment is a big thing to look after. Actually, buying all those tech stuff isn't very healthy either, always the want to have something new and better. But hey, the wife spends money on clothes and handbags, so I guess we just keep it balanced.
Yeah, can't wait for my MBA to finally arrive, already waiting 9 days and I was to.d it can be up to 30 days. Hope it won't be that long.

I wouldn't feel THAT bad.
1) Craigslist never 100% safe
2) No guarantee that the product is fully functioning
3) 11' vs 13' is actually pretty significant (screen, more palm real estate, SD card)
4) 2012 MBA has USB 3.0, faster processor, way better graphics card.
5) 8 GB is a great future proof investment.

I always say that if you're going to extensively use a certain device, it's best to pay upfront and deal with as few headaches as possible.
Don't feel bummed from missing that deal.
