In all fairness, Macworld says its tests are designed to drain the battery quickly.
That may be true, but they used the same test last year. So they are mostly the same. If they had used a different test last year, the results wouldn't have been comparable.
The air is a great laptop, but I think their buying advice is sound. There isn't enough to justify an upgrade if you own a 2011 model and are happy with it.
Good point on the battery test part.
Personally, I'm upgrading from a PowerBook so it's going to be night and day for me
One shouldnt be upgrading every year anyway.....unless its a huge jump
Thanks for the link. It was an interesting read.
I wouldn't buy a computer based on some website general recommendations. Everyone's needs are different. Besides, they've changed almost everything on the inside, there is a faster processor, faster RAM, more RAM, faster & larger SSD, USB 3, better IGP. I think if some of these are crucial for your job then the MBA 2012 is a very, very worthy upgrade.
I agree, as long as you're happy with 4gb RAM (probably the 2011 model's main limiting factor). If not, the 8gb RAM on the 2012 model is quite a bonus!
No matter how great a new computer is, why would you upgrade if you're happy with the one you have now?
Here's something I hadn't seen before though
