    I've had a 2013 MBA (8GB/128GB) for 3 years and it truly is a great machine that I hope will last me many more years. AFAIK there is very little difference between that and the 2015 model.

    I got an 11" i7/8gb/512gb MBA two and a half years ago and I love it. Best Apple computer I've ever owned…. and I go all the way back the the Apple ][ in 1978. :)

    Is this an Apple factory refurb model? I didn't realize they were still offering the 2013. If so, then it is just about the most bang for the buck that you will find in the market.

    I have a late 2013 13" MBA (i7/8GB/512GB SSD) and I agree with the previous posters - it is easily the best computer I have ever owned - I am typing on it now.

    There is little by way of significant difference between the 2013, 2014 and the 2015 models, as several others have already pointed out.

    Actually, the really significant upgrade occurred in the 2013 model which was a striking improvement over the 2012 model.

    You won't be disappointed. I own a loaded up mid 2013 13" and it's been a solid performer since day 1. The only issue I had was the lid hinge being a bit too loose for my liking, got that taken care of and "it just works".

    How much is the refurb? If it's more than $800 I would pass. Go for a newer one instead for a bit more money.
