I've been a lifetime Windows user and may make the switch to Apple's Macs as I don't have the inclination to get acquainted with Win8 and also it seems like the quality of Apple's notebooks are usually higher than most manufacturers. That said, I'm on a tight time line and would like to be able to pick up a Macbook Air by the end of this week. I wanted to get an i7/8/256 but that needs to be BTO and won't get here in time. However, Apple Stores do usually carry the next upgrade up, the top of the line, "Ultimate" i7/8/512 but of course that's $300 more. Does anyone here have the Macbook Air Ultimate (i7/8/512)? Was it worth it? Was it worth it to you? If you could do it again would you pick something else? I am a student so I suppose the cost would be $1750 (1850-100) plus tax and whatever accessories I wanted to buy. Of course it'd be helpful to list what my uses would be: Schoolwork, light gaming: SCII/HOTS, Diablo 3, older Source games (never finished HL2 or any of the sequels). It'd basically be my general computer. I'm pretty mobile and the only reason I don't bring my current 15.4" Sager2090 is because it's old and slow and there's no battery life and the laptop and all the ancillary gear like power brick weighs in at about another 8-10 pounds to whatever it is I'm carrying. Anyway, sorry if the post seems long and rambling. Thanks for all your insight.
