    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 ...

    I like the bezels. At least they match the color of the rest of the case.

    But without them, it can be even smaller than it is or changed to 14"+ screen for the same size. It is pretty much wasted space.

    I don't want it any smaller. Maybe a slightly larger screen, ok. For me the bezels frame the screen content better and make the display more durable.

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 Sure it’s light and has working keyboard, but the rest is outdated.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