    Just watched the 22nd Event live!

    I am EXCITED!

    This christmas, I'm going to buy myself a 13" (Highest configuration) £1499

    Why? The 512GB SSD is a DREAM for me. I'm currently on an 11" Air base 2013, which is fast. But very small and lack of storage..

    Never heard of IRIS graphics, but it'll be better than HD 5000 if Apple chose it over it I'm sure..

    A welcome extra 4GBs of RAM (8)..

    If I decide to customise it further, should I get an i7 or 16GB RAM?

    Which would be better long term/more noticeable in operation.. what tasks would each one excel at?

    ~~ Also for UK readers of my post, NOT advertising, but saying for reference, my Air is selling on eBay for £770 - 1 month old, 11months warranty - perfect condition. Let me know what you guys think about that price, I want it sold fast!

    Thanks, shanebunting - spoilt consumer of Apple products :)

    I would get the 16GB RAM upgrade.

    I suppose the RAM will enable the i5 to have optimal breathing space!

    An i7 would probably be in the field of 32GB ? lol

    Don't get 16GB RAM if you aren't going to use it. 8 is fine for most people.

    Then what, may I ask, is the base 4GB RAM good enough for?

    PS. I'll be buying mine for Xmas also.
