Question 2012 MBA to 2013 MBA

I bought a 2012 MBA shortly after the were released. Do you think the new intel processors will be worth the upgrade and selling my 2012 MBA?

Also bought a 13" and THINKING of going to 11"

Well if Haswell gets on the MBA, it will just be slight CPU increase, low energy consumption and HD5000.

Unless any of these sparks your mind, I wouldnt change it.

Upgrading a laptop as expensive as an Air does not make sense on an yearly basis,unless you have ample dough to throw around.

Macs are good for atleast three years IMO.

Unless there's major feature upgrade on 2013 MacBook air, I wouldn't do it.
If you are obsessed with following new technology, I suggest you to get DESKTOP.

No. I would wait for the Air to get a retina update (probably 2014-2015) before you upgrade. Haswell will give you a nice graphical performance upgrade which is not necessary since the Air is not usually used as a gaming computer.
