Hi guys! I was just at my local BestBuy the other day and saw the October 2010 MBA 13 base for $999 brand new, (config. 1.86 GHz, 2GB RAM, 128GB SSD), so basically the same as the refurbs at Apple, except they are brand new and come in brand new retail box (more resale value?) Anyway, this puts the 13' 2010 MBA at a very decent value, having a higher clocked processor (which is the main upgrade to the 2011 11' MBA), bigger screen, and a very decent screen resolution for a 13 incher. Also, SD card slot and GT 320M. You also don't have to worry about the Toshiba vs Samsung SSD issue. And the SSD is twice the size on the base 2011 11' MBA. However, the 2011 11' MBA has got Thunderbolt, backlit keyboard, and newer generation of CPU. And it's $950. I have been using a laptop without backlit keyboard for the past year and really didn't miss the feature. Also I don't really think having Thunderbolt on the MBA is gonna do much... So I guess all it comes down to is the performance of the new i5 clocked at 1.6GHz vs. the C2D clocked at 1.86GHz. Although the C2D is technically higher clocked, I'm wondering if issues such as FSB and power consumption is going to tip the scale in the i5's favor, ultimately making it a win for the 2011 11' base MBA? I am leaning a little toward the 13' 2010 MBA but the ancient C2D is really off-putting. Any thoughts, guys? $999 for the 13' 2010 MBA or $949 for the 11' 2011 MBA. PLEASE HELP I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS SO MUCH MY HEAD IS GOING TO EXPLODE WITH PURE MBA AWESOMENESS.
