    Hi all..

    Just wondering should i get a MBA Haswell now or wait and see few months what Apple "brings to the table."

    There is no question in my mind the MBA can urn Retina, since the MBP with Retina is Ivy Bridge and since GPU can already handle it, the 5000 would be more than adequate. However, the question is, will they do anything here ? or will it all be "pro based"

    If its all "pro upgrades" then i may as well get a MBA now...

    Suggestions?

    Apple isn't going to bring anything new to the table for the MBA, they just updated the laptop and they have multiple other computer lines they need to update, i.e., the MBP, and Mac Pro.

    I'd say you risk nothing now by buying now.

    The 2013 is the best Air ever. If you could do with a little less battery life, the 2012 is nearly as good and the savings will help quiet your doubts.

    Every new MacBook Air is the best one they released. The 2013 models are exceptional though. I'd say go for it.

    There will always be new... And you can always sell with minimal loss if you keep everything (including boxes etc) in great nick!
