Just picked up an Air 13" . . . Love it

Just got it and its awesome! Bought an open box at Best Buy for $914, told it was only owed for 2 days before it was returned. Spent the night adding music and photos. The SSD is fast and made it much easier to update and transfer files.

I love it!

Still good deal - do they extend the 10% off coupon - thought it already ended.

I'm pretty sure that ended the beginning of the month.

Then I bought this sleeve, which people said elsewhere fits the speck case (I'll find out friday..). I'm more worried about water and rain, so hopefully this addresses it..

I got a 13" Air open box for $850 OTD with the coupon. Had bought a Retina, but when I got it home discovered a dent in the lid and it wasn't aligned properly-made me concerned it had been dropped. So I swapped for a 13/1.8/4/128.

And yes, the coupon expired on the 2nd.

I highly recommend looking at the Moshi covers. Especially the translucent. I have used them on my 13" MBA and I have one on my 15" rMBP I am typing this on.

See http://store.moshimonde.com/iglaze-a...ucent-226.html

I am also a fan of the 3M carbon fiber skins. See http://www.icarbons.com/collections/...k-carbon-fiber. I don't apply the inside skin. I just do the bottom and top.
