I'm tight on money right now, but I need a laptop for school. (My HP died after two years.) Here's what I'm looking at: Refurbished MacBook Air 1.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 Originally released July 2011 13.3-inch (diagonal) high-resolution LED-backlit glossy widescreen display 4GB memory 128GB flash storage Thunderbolt port with support for up to 2560-by-1600 resolution FaceTime camera Intel HD Graphics 3000 $929.00 This is cheaper than the newest version by about $150, since the education discount for the Air is only $50. For my needs -Internet, watching DVDs from an external drive, storing less than 16gb on music- is this sufficient and will it last me 7 years? I'm not into upgrading every once in a while and like to use my computers until they fail. If there isn't a noticeable different in speed between the pro and the air in everyday use, the Air would be a better option for me. I'm just looking for some guidance in thinking this decision through.. Is this model a good choice for me and am I getting the best price possible on this without having to resort to Craigslist or eBay? I'm open to buying from other sources if the service from Apple is the same. Thanks!
