I took advantage of the education pricing + free Beats Solo3 wireless headphones deal that also included the trade in of my Late 16 13" Pro. I'm 'promised' nearly ½ of what I paid 3 years ago and the pricing including AppleCare and the Beats headphones incentive was enough to at least get me to try it out. I also moved up to 16GB RAM as that's where I believe I would/will see the most improvement. My real question is; Is there a reason to return this one and wait for an upcoming update that I'm not aware of since I don't frequent the Air forum often and I haven't been paying attention to recent Rumors? I've been considering the Air for awhile since the Retina update and the Finger Print sensor motivated me. I miss the TouchBar but not the keyboard. This keyboard is an improvement over the Pro's. My Geekbench scores are pretty decent so far as well.
