Hi there, I have some money to invest in the purchase of a MBA (the second one I'm buying in a couple of months, since I had my first one stolen in September :'( ). I'll categorically need it before the end of May, because then I will need to do a massive data treatement for my Uni, impossible to perform on my old Netbook crap. Rumors are around that a MBA 2012 will be released soon, in April or May ; OTOH other rumors say that it will rather be released in June or even later this summer, with Mountain Lion. So, you understand my dilemma : I wouldn't mind lingering a month or so with my Netbook, if it's worth a brand new Ivy Bridge Air ; but if, after all this this waiting, I'll have to buy a MBA 2011 because Apple set the MBA 2012 to be released at the end of May, in June or whatever - well, that would REALLY piss me off. I know that only Apple knows if and when the 2012 update will be released (it's said that the Big CEO up in the Sky asked the newcomer Steve Jobs for news, and he said : top secret). So my two questions will be different : is there any hope that, during this month of March, rumors will get more reliable, if not about the actual release date, at least about when it will surely NOT be released ? if I buy an Apple-refurbished and guaranteed Air 13' i7 1,8Ghz 256Gb for, say, 1359.00 €, how much could I realistically resell it once the new Air is out, assuming that I'm using it for 4 month and keeping it in good conditions ? And if I buy a brand new one ? In other words, how much money will I need to upgrade my MBA 2011 to a MBA 2012 once this latter sees the day ? Thank you for your advice ! A.
