    So when do we think they are going to update the air with the new Haswell chips???

    Also is it worth waiting for that refresh, I know the gpu performance is supposed to be a big boost but I also know its only for the GT-3 versions not 1 and 2?

    Haswell will be out mid-year. Early reports show a nice bump in graphics.

    +1 to above. The release is usually in the June-July timeframe. Except for iPhones and iPads which seem to be almost weekly these days, driving the value of Apple stock way down.

    Haswell uses less power and is at least 10% faster than the latest ivy bridge processor. Of the three versions, GT1 (the slowest) is currently used in ultrabooks. MBA has 4000 GPU and the new one will have 4600 or faster for the GT3.

    Haswell may not be a big deal if your MacBook is fast enough already.

    Thanks everyone. I actually ended up finding a great deal on a retina macbook pro and bought it lol. I appreciate everyone's input.

    Better call, screen is a massive improvement, and really, that's what you're staring at all day!
