    Gheetings!
    Looking for 256Gigs 13-inch Macbook Air.
    Its $1050 for 2017 and 900$ for 2016 model.
    The only difference is processors 0.2 Mhz clock speed.
    Is 5350u slightly better than 5250u? Worth it?
    What to choose?

    $150 difference will cover goods like cases, hdmi adapter etc.

    Thanks!

    What are you going to be using the computer for?

    The difference is probably not worth it, but it all depends on your use case.

    It's browser-based usage in 80%.
    Nearly 20% External soft like Adobe Photoshop, Excel, light apps.

    I'm not an expert on the MBA, but I imagine any one you buy will handle your load just fine.
