    Just bought for 1562 at Amazon+134 NY tax. I have a 2011 11" 4/128 that I love, but want the screen. This seems like the cheapest way in. I travel a lot and had and sold a 13 air because it was too deep. Though this weighs more I like the proportions better. There was an air 13 8/256 refurb the other day that was tempting at 1449- glad I didn't bite as for an extra 113 I get a really different machine. I have learned to work with the limitations of the128g drive,
    with usb3 and the sd slot I add flexibility.

    I didn't even notice that. The 256Gb model is available for shipping at $1799. You spent about $1700, for an extra $100 you could get 256gb.

    Check

    After I read your first message I checked Frys again and saw the 256. Seems like the best deal going.

    Yeah, someone else mentioned in another thread. Definitely the best deal out there.

    I agree, if I were in the market that's the one I'd be buying.
