Like many others, I'm having a difficult time trying to decide whether or not to upgrade. I own the Late-2010, 13-inch, 128GB, 4GB and absolutely love it. It runs perfectly for my needs: music, surfing, word processing (web based), etc. I don't have any MS products on it and don't run VM or any of that. The Late-2010 model is so good! I'm on the fence to upgrade to the 2012 13-inch, 128GB, 8GB because my job ends soon and I'm taking off the next two years to travel and work on some side projects. My thinking is to get a new MBA now (while I have a good income) for the so-called "future proofing" so I don't have any problems while I'm traveling and unemployed (but with money in the bank). I do not have Applecare on my 2010 (stupid me!). So, what do you guys think? Should I upgrade now or will the late-2010 be just as sweet for at least the next two years?
