Well its Christmas and the want of a new machine was being held at bay with my 2011 13" MBP that has a crucial 512Gb SSD with 8Gb Ram in it until I re-injured my shoulder at work a few weeks ago. Fast forward to 2 nights ago with a "lucky scratch off coupon for the base PX, a just marked down new 11.6" MBA (from $989 to $949), this one being the last in the store until the new year (getting me a $50 discount), and "winning" a 10% off for the scratch off coupon = $809.10 for the current Haswell 11.6" MBA with 4Gb RAM and the 128Gb SSD! That's cheaper than it is on the refurb store right now for a new, current model. I will still have the MBP for other tasks and larger storage needs but the Haswell CPU benches slightly faster than my Sandy Bridge CPU = really in the two days of using it both machines seem on par with the definite weight advantage going to the MBA (obviously). This thing is so portable, I want to keep it but my goal was to wait for the Broadwell revision next year and give my MBP to my wife (to replace her 2009 Whitebook with 64Gb SSD and 4 Gb RAM by gifting it to a family member who will need a new PC by then). What would you do, any advice is welcome?!?!
