    Hello, i'm in France and i've to wait 3 week to have my 1,3 macbook. And in 3 days, i can have the 1,2 in a store like Best Buy.

    => 120 $ between the 2 configuration.

    So, it's very hard to have a good review of the 2 configuration. Is the upgrade worth it ?

    i've read this post, but except the battery life, author prefers the 1,3 for the very little improvement. it's hard to know if there is a real gain with this review

    My take on it is this. If you are buying a rMB is there really anything you plan on doing that the 1.3 can handle that the 1.1 cannot even handle? I hope that makes sense. If you push the 1.1 you are probably going to push the 1.3.

    The only benefit I possibly see is the heat. The 1.3 will probably rarely kick into turbo.

    between the 1,1 and the 1,2 the review are very different :
    With the 1,1 review, they are very skeptical about the performance and lag, but with the 1,2 review, they are more enthusiast . (i spend a lot of time to read the review all over the web).

    If the difference between the 1,2 and 1,3 are the same between a macbook air I5 and a macbook air I7, i tested and i can see an improvement.

    But if the difference are the same between a 2013 macbook air i5 and a 2014 macbook air i5 (the refresh version of haswell), i can't see an improvement.
