While my house has the same models of 2012 MacBook Air 13 laptops, my buddy also has one that is very close to having the initial 1-year warranty expire (in about a week). I told him that if he wants to upgrade to the 2013, he better order one soon tonight from Best Buy because they have a very good sale price and he also has a .edu coupon for an additional $100 off. Then I'm sure he can sell his current 2012 MBA for about $750...resulting in a net upgrade cost of ~$160 after RZ certs earned. OR he can keep his current 2012 MBA 13" and add AppleCare for $180 (B&H) or $183 straight from Apple. OR he can keep the 2012 MBA 13" and let the warranty expire and hope for the best (let it ride) at a cost of course of $0. What do you all think is the best option? Thanks!
