Similar experience here. Ordered the same spec MBA as your parents from the UK refurbished store (i5/128GB/8GB). Opened it yesterday to find that I had actually been sent an i7. Quite a nice surprise!

Just bought a used 2013 13-inch base model MacBook air off Craigslist for my wife. It is in flawless condition and checked with Apple and it isn't stolen. Only paid $450! Pretty stoked she loves it will be perfect for her she only does light work and watches movies.

Buying used MBA 11

Looking at getting a used/older Mac for work as a field tech for copiers. Fell in love with the MBP 13 retina but out of my price range. Found a 11" MBA i5 8gb 256gb SSD for $600 but need to buy charger, it died on him so he bought a new 13". It'a a 2012 so it has the older Ivy Bridge technology instead of Haswell, not sure if that is a big difference or not.

Also found an 11" 2013 i7, 8gb, 256gb ssd for $720. This one has the haswell chipset.

Picked up a new MBA 13" 2014 model from Craigslist for $750 for my wife. I think it's a great deal for an awesome laptop!
