Switch it to the i5 1.7. You won't get any noticeable performance increase with the i7 but you'll have worse battery life and a hotter computer.

Ordered me a 13" base model. My 13" MBP will go to my wife, she doesnt travel nearly as much as I do.

Should be here tomorrow. Only $16 for overnight shipping - I would have spent that just in gas driving to and from the Apple store tomorrow.

Can we change the thread title to "I just ORDERED it!"?


I was expecting to see some first hand commentary on the new MBA - not a report on when the expected arrival date was.

I got the 256GB 13" i5. I don't really need that much more processing power, but I DO need the 256 as it is going to be my only computer for a while.

I spent the 16 bones for next day shipping. Hopefully that means tomorrow and not friday because I'll be at work when it comes.

Ahhh bought to pull a trigger on the 13" base 128gb. Dont need to pay 300 for extra storage or more for speed since I purchased a 3'4 27" i7 1tb + 256 ssd on sunday.

Got the base 13 inch!! Have had an HP Envy 15 (Ubuntu, not Windows) for the last year - which had replaced my black MacBook - and I can't wait to get this lap-melting slab of metal out of my life. As brilliant as the 1080p matte screen is, it's just not a good machine.


This lack of confirmation from Apple about my order is killing me! I know they're probably overloaded today, but I feel like I've done something wrong in the order process! I know I haven't...I'm not quickly clicking through confirmations for a $1300 machine, but oohh the anticipation :D

MBAIR 11.6/1.6/4/128FLASH-USA and a new Mac Mini with the 6630 vid card. The Air, just shipped. :)

I even went against my feelings back to the 11inch. This combo with my Cinema display is going to be great I think.

When you order online from the education store, do you have to show proof that your a student, like give a student number?

I ordered it at 12:55 EST. I wonder what their cutoff is for shipping same day. I chose next day air shipping and hope it ships today.

I got the 13" base model

you sure about that?

Well i guess that might make sense. Since the i5 is a 2 core and has 2 virtual cores.

while the i7 is also 2 cores, but probably with turbo boost.

I wish we could see the benchmarks.

No way mate. The extra MB L3 cache should make for a noticable difference. Its also 50 Mhz faster of a GPU... not as MUCH of a difference but slight. Also combined with a slightly faster clock... i don't know i don't know, we'll have to see the tests. But I would not call it so definitevly as you have.
