    I've decided to get the new MBA (11"/8/256/i5). I've also decided to sell my current 2011 MBA (11"/4/128/i7), and I'm a bit curious on an expected value. A light usage gives about 3.5 hours of battery time. Watching Youtube reduces it to about 1.5 hours.

    I've had no issues what so ever with this machine, it feels snappy enough.

    Anyone who dares to give me a price estimate?

    Thank you.

    I would say less then that. That is the territory for the 256SSD for the 2011 model.

    Check eBay for completed sales with the same specs.

    Finally I sold it for 6100 SEK (US$ 925). That's 68% of the price of the current 11" base model in Sweden.

    (Before you start yelling on how good a deal I made, please keep in mind that the iMac in my sig cost about US$ 3800 when I bought it.)

    Using the given information one could make one's own calculation, and see that the Swedish Apple price is X % higher than the American dito.

    Anything unclear?
