    My uni are buying me a mac book air for £1150. Because it is a one year course I want to arrange for the thing asap, unless they say it is too late in the year and it is now not justified. I was gonna wait for the mbp update and add a few £100's and get one of them caz i wanna do video editing with progs like final cut pro, however I'm thinking about just getting the air now instead, not opening it and selling it on/sending it back once the mbp update finally comes. What sort of depreciation should I expect to see in the the thing over the next month?

    Thanking you for your advice in advance.

    It will depreciate at a rate of 0.7359% per day over the next month. And if the Macbook Air gets updated soon then expect depreciation to be about 1.4529% per day over the next month or so.

    Uh, no you are wrong. According to my figures it is about 0.5483% per a day if it does not get updated. If it does receive an update it is about 2.5748% per a day.

    They are buying it for you at no cost to you? I'd just take it now and use it! Worry about the value when it's your money, when it's free you take it and be happy.

    Are you sure you got that second figure correct? You may have forgotten to include variable inflation relative to growth into account.

    I did. Thats part of the reason why there was an increase of 1.1219% compared to PAC's figures.
