    A friend of mine is willing to sell me her Macbook Air from 2011 for about $500. I currently use a MacMini that is from early 2010 and I am looking to upgrade. Ideally, I want a MacBook Pro but that won't be in my budget for a good while. I don't know much about the MacBook Air. Would this be an upgrade? Is it a decent computer? Any input/info about the MacBook Air would be appreciated because I just don't know much about it.

    What are the specs on the MBA you might buy?

    Yes the 2011 regardless of specs is a step up.

    The i series chips in them are worth it and are vastly superior to the cpu's even just a generation before.

    ...is it the 11" or the 13", does it have 2Gb RAM or 4Gb Ram, is the SSD 64Gb?

    I'm assuming all the specs are base line so while $500 seems inexpensive there has to be a reason she's selling it seemingly cheap...

    I have to double check which model. I would think that it would be the base model. She bought it for her husband when she thought he would be commuting on the metro for work.
