    Can anyone tell me the difference between those two models when it comes to performance in games and general CPU heavy work?

    I am considering selling my old 2012 MBA 13 and bye the new one. It will cost me the equivalent of 200 dollars to sell the old and buy the new.

    Unless you ran the two machines side by side, you probably won't notice the difference. I say save your money for a more significant upgrade.

    The 2013/2014 MBA has faster wifi (802.11ac) and longer battery life. Sorry, I don't play games. The 2013/2014 model has HD 5000 graphics - does the 2012 have the HD 4000?

    Thanks for your replies. What about heat? I think my current MBA is running hit when I see movies in vlc or uses flash. The fan is easily running Mac speed. Is the newest MBA air any different when it comes to heat?
