    Would you buy a top spec MacBook Air 11" for about £750 - £800?
    It's a great discount as it's only 5-6 months old and a saving of about 38%?
    Would you buy one for this price considering the new one is so close?

    Does that mean you can get your hands on a second-hand (in other words USED) MBA, that hasn't been released yet?
    How the hump does that work?

    Lol no I mean it's a 5 month old model top spec, what do you reckon is it a good deal rather than waiting for new model whenever that comes out?

    Ah, I misunderstood, as you have "MacBook Air 2011" in your thread title and post, thus my confusion.
    Mac2Sell, Gazelle or eBay (Việt Nam, Türkiye, Česká republika, Hanguk) might be good price checkers.​

    The top 11" MBA is a great machine, I use it everyday for work. If there are no issues with the machine any price under $1000 is a huge steal. Even a used top 11" MBA will go for over $1000 easy.

    The 2010 11" MBA has been released. We're still waiting for the 2011 version to be released. Sorted.


    And personally, if I were in the UK and had to put up with UK prices, I'd buy a 5 month old used 11" MBA for £300 less than a brand new one, or £100 less than a refurb. If I'm buying used rather than refurb (which comes with a new 1 year Apple warranty), there better be a damn good financial reason for it. ;)

    I don't know how much the current price in the UK is for a top spec 11" MBA, but I'd probably do the above.
