I've never owned a MacBook, and I know the new ones are coming out. I found a guy on Craigslist selling a MBA in good condition. It's the 1.7 i5 4 gigs of ram and 256 gig SSD He is also giving me a Magic Mouse. Asking price is $1,200. Also, if I don't buy this one, I'd be buying a low end 13" refurbished MBP which is 1,019 and just over 1,100 after taxes.
