I am in the market for either a MBA or a Surface Pro 3. I like the screen on the SP3 much much better but really like the form factor of the MBA more. I would get the 11inch model and with the new Best Buy pricing and student discount, seems like a great time to get one for $650+tax. My concerns are the release of a new MBA soon with possible retina as well as battery life living up to the 9 hour mark. (work emails all day, web browsing, youtube videos) Does Apple do any trade in offers for when a new MBA line comes out for possible flipping if they release a retina one shortly? The never ending tech debate of buy now or something newer in a month after you buy. I currently have a 2012 late model mac desktop and absolutely love it but the tablet/screen of the SP3 has me intrigued. Help me make a decision MBA owners!
