My 2011, 13" Macbook Air 4GB/128GB, i5 is dead and Apple is offering me a replacement. They are giving me $1000 in credit (same as what the 2014 13" MBA costs right now with my identical specs) They are pushing me to upgrade to the Retina Macbook Pro but I still have the option to get a MBA with upgraded specs 8GB/i7 The basis of the upgrade is my useage (watching flash lectures online and on VLC and doing heavy web browsing and Microsoft Office) That's literally all i do, browse the web, watch videos for class on the web or VLC (I only use Opera/Chrome not Safari), and use Microsoft Word/Powerpoint What should i do? Pay $150 for MBA 11 with i7 and 8GB of Ram Pay $250 for MBA 13 with i7 and 8GB of Ram Pay $400 for rMBP 13 with i5 and 8GB of Ram Right now Im leaning toward the 11" bc of how cheap it is but I am scared that the 11" would be too small for my constant web browsing, PDF viewing, and Word/Powerpoint use im a student. I have a 13" MBA and I love it but the 11" has always intrigued me Also the 13" retina screen has peaked my interest but basically i would be upgrading for the screen only since the i7 in the 11" or 13" should give me very similar performance to the i5 in the Retina Pro. Is the Retina screen that much better than the MBA to necessitate the extra $150? Or should I go for the 11"?? Regardless, I plan on waiting until June 30 when my loan goes thru and hopefully the new hardware could be released at WWDC Anyone and everyone please help!
