I need a smaller computer for school. I have considered getting an iPad with a keyboard, and I am still on the fence with that however in my head having a netbook or an Air is a better idea. Best Buy has it on sale now for $800 plus they give a $50 school discount. So is that a good deal? Should I wait a bit? After Xmas perhaps? I hear a 12 inch was coming out next year but I most likely won't hold my breath on that. The school discount deal I think is for a month. From reading old post it was $100 off, and is now $50 off. I know the cost of the air usually goes up or down on Sundays. I saw it for $780 at one time but I don't think the coupon was valid until then. Another option I've had was to get a lenovo 3 but it's a bit heavier than the air. My 2012 pro isn't that heavy, but heavy enough for me to want to buy something more portable. I intend to only use this for papers, some web browsing when in school, perhaps some power point presentations, It's possible the pro (13 inches) will still be my primary comp of choice but if the air is more zippy I might change my mind. I can only afford the base model for now. I have to go to the city tomorrow so if I buy it tomorrow is a good time. All in all I can always buy it at BB and return it within two weeks? (I need to double check their restock fee/return policy What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance.
