Refurb MBA selection

Hello all,

I'm looking to buy a 2012 MBA (which will be my first Apple notebook). Ideally I want a 13" with i5/8GB/256GB config. However, I've been monitoring the refurb selection on the Apple website and at Refurb.me and the only refurb 2012 13" MBA options are as follows:

i5/4/128
i5/4/256
i7/8/256
i7/8/512

Does Apple occasionally add other models to the refurb store or will this be it? The i7/8/256 is tempting at the price but I'm not sure I want the i7 considering concerns about the fan and lesser battery life. My planned usage is nothing more than a lot of web browsing/MS Office work but I do plan on running Windows in Parallels and it sounds like i5 can handle that fine with 8GB of RAM. Just wondering if I'd ever see a i5/8/256 in the refurb store or if I should just buy new.
