I think the macbook air is the only one and the best to buy now…

Pro's:
1- price (Always discounted 700/800 euros)
2- old reliable keyboard
3- best battery life
4- lightned apple logo
5- magsafe
6- usb ports and sdxc

Con's
1- i5 5thgen
2- non Retina screen

But if we see a new Macbook Air in october:
1- keyboard will be a problem (also 3rd gen pros have issues)
2- price increase is sure

what do you think?

Although I love my Air I do hate the "new" magsafe plug - it falls out at least 10 times a day.

I can't imagine a laptop without all the ports that the Air still has. But I guess the future will be with dongles and ...

Best is subjective. Sure it’s light and has working keyboard, but the rest is outdated.

I don't think Retina is a big deal. I like the 1440x900 resolution on the 13-inch display. I think that's fine enough detail. I'd be fine with all the same but updated internals. I'd especially like them to keep scissor switches. Keeping MagSafe or upgrading to a MagSafe 3 would be great. It'd be perfect if they could make a 2-in-1 MagSafe / USB-C port.
