    So I want to get an Air.

    My budget is $750 (as of now, not willing to go above $1,000)

    My intended uses are:
    • school
    • web
    • netflix
    • portable LoL and other light games
    • reading (comics too)
    • iTunes rentals/movie downloads to 42" HDTV (720p) via HDMI

    Stuff that's important to me:
    • Battery
    • Screen
    • Performance
    • Temps

    I've been watching CL lately, some deals but not exactly what I want. So my question is with the refresh release coming out this summer what will be the price of the old Airs? Refurbished and new alike. If they could go down a little lower than what they are currently i'd most likely wait for that instead of buying used.

    So what do you think? I don't need one immediately, though it would be nice :p

    Down the rabbit hole
    I see some 11" refurbs that are $100 over your budget and have tiny drives to go with the tiny screens. You may find something on CL but you'll probably wait a while. Whatever pops up there, better get it checked out thoroughly.

    Yeah what I usually do is ask for close ups and to try it out before I buy. I also always ask for the serial and run it by apple to make sure it's not stolen.
