Macbook Air advice
I'm a student who's looking for the "right" MBA.
I'll be using the air for word, excel, browsing etc. (nothing big) - beside mac os I also need parallels with windows where I only will use MathCad - a mathematical programme.
So... What air would be right? Do I need 8 gb ram and the i7 processor for my tasks? The 256 ssd or 128 gb? I think i would go for the 256 - but should i upgrade the processor and ram? Or just ram? By looking at my needs: what would be the right solution cause I don't want to waste money on luxurious
I need some help guys -

My advice, get the 8gb of ram, since it soldered onto the logic board and you'll not be able to upgrade later.
Secondly get the 256GB especially since you mention loading windows. Running both OSX and windows will get a bit tight on 128gb. Maybe not on day 1, but as time goes buy.
You'll not notice any performance increase with the i7, so you can stick with the i5 imo
