A local retailer has MacBook Airs and Pros on sale this weekend for $150 - $200 off MSRP. I'm torn between waiting for the "education event" in a few days to see if Apple announces a new MacBook Air, or just going ahead and buying a MacBook. My usage for this will be strictly casual (web surfing, Youtube video, etc.), but I could find a use for a 16GB laptop running virtual machines (currently relegated to a PC.) However, a MacBook with 16GB would be prohibitively expensive for me - unless I buy used. I'm not sure I want to spend $1000+ on a used machine though. I also intend to run some older/lighter games like the original Xcom and Divinity Original Sin. I can get them to run on my 2012 MBP, but they only hit 20fps. The laptop overheats as well, and has other issues. My budget is in the $1000 - $1200 range. I really need at least 256GB storage as well, which leaves certain base model laptops out of the picture. There's also a nice Late 2013 15" MBP on the local market, but again I'm hesitant to spend $1100 on an old, used machine. Any thoughts on what I should do?
