    Hey guys,

    Boring verses thread, but maybe you guys with the Airs can help me figure this out. I have a 2010 11" air that I bought just before the 2011 came out (I was going on the road and couldn't wait). I love this machine, but its a bit slow for my use (web, content consumption, basic stuff). I also think I'm going to like the 13" screen better. I find the 11" to require too much scrolling and zooming.

    $1200 is the most I want to spend. A refurb 2011 with 256GB drive is $1200 and a 2012 with 128GB drive is $1200. I'd love some more storage space, but it isn't essential. Whats the better value here? Basically faster drive, faster graphics, faster processor and USB3 vs 128GBs of extra storage.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks guys!

    Mike

    Get the 2012 if space is not as important. The Ivy Bridge processors already make it well worth it.
