Since the last WWDC a couple days ago and the new Haswell implementation in the mba I don't know what specs I should use.

I play minecraft (need a decent 30 to 40 fps), do some photo editing and love watching youtube in hd. As I'm a student so I also do word or pages and powerpoints.

I was wondering if 4gb of ram would be sufficient or if I'd better take the 8gb option since you can't uprade it later. I'd also like to know your opinion on the i7 vs the i5 option. And if it's worth the $140 extra. As for the storage I'm going for 256gb.

Feel free to ask questions if you need more info. All responses are greatly apreaciated. Thanks

Thanks for the response. There are a lot of interesting discussions in the threads you linked.

I think I'm gonna go for 8gb of ram and an i5 processor.
