processor upgrade on 13'' MBA

Why is there no option to upgrade to the i7 processor on the 13'' MBA, they allow you to do so on the base model at 11'' but not at 13? Am I missing something?

Yes, you are missing something. I have that processor in my 13" MBA.

Neither base model allows you to upgrade the processor. Choose the 256GB 13" model and you can upgrade to the i7.

Don't call it an "upgrade" as if you can do it AFTER u get bored with it.

U order the i5 or the i7 and ur done after the 30 days return period.
