My buddy is looking into getting the macbook air Rev A on the refurb store for $1100 Canadian. It seems like a great deal and my feeling is that it will work well for him, but I wanted to see what everyone else things. I've read lots of threads about the Rev A and it seems like they had a lot of problems and needed a lot of repairs, and they were not very fast. The repairs thing doesn't seem like a huge problem if he has applecare because they will fix it, and who knows maybe even give him a Rev B if it has to get fixed multiple times. He will be using it to browse the internet, ebay, email, etc... He may be watching some youtube videos and that sort of thing as well as some light office work, but nothing too processor intensive or graphics intensive. Will the Rev A be sufficient in speed for him or will he notice it being slow? What exactly is the Rev A NOT capable of (aside from games and heavy encoding work and video editing stuff). The refurbished Rev B is $650 Canadian more (not even including tax) and for such a light user I can't seem to justify that extra cost. What do you guys and gals think? Ball out.
