Just wanted to share my excitement. After a lot of considerations I have finally ordered a refurb 11" Air (2013 model, 4/256, i5). Can't wait to get it into my hands. I will travel a lot for my job in the future and in addition to my professional laptop I want to bring my own one, hence the need for something very small. I have a cMBP 13" which is great but quite heavy, so this one will stay at home in the future or I might eventually sell it if I really like the Air enough. Until the last minute I was hesitating between 11" and 13" having played with both of them instore a couple of times. As I think many others are in the same position I want to share my thoughts and why I went for the 11" in the end: Advantage 11": - really small and light, hardly bigger than an iPad - slightly cheaper Advantage 13"" - bigger screen (obviously) - SD card reader (annoys me that the 11" does not have it) - longer battery life My biggest challenge was however, every time I was thinking about going for the 13" Air I started comparing it to the retina MBP 13" and starting wondering what the point of the Air is - very similar size and weight, not much of a price difference but the retina screen on the Pro with a somewhat reduced battery life... Anyway, will get my 11" on Monday and will later on write, how I like it. And if not.... well I won't lose too much money on it, great prices in the refurb shop, I paid the equivalent of about 860 USD.
