    Hey!
    I was wondering if it would be a good idea to buy mysel a refurbished 2013 MBA, or wait until the rumored cheaper 2014 model comes out? I was going to buy a chromebook, but since I got all this financial aid money I said why not treat myself to something, responsibly of course. The late 2012 model is also $200 cheaper on the Apple store but only hsas 64GB of storage. Sow what should i do whats the most financially sound choice?

    Please and thank you!

    I don't think you will see a 2014 until mid-2014, so it is a bit soon to try and gauge if the 2014 update will be worthwhile. If you need a machine now, I would just get it.

    Wait for the rumored 12" Air with IGZO display if you can. If you need something in the meantime, just buy used off ebay or buy a 2012 refurb... I wouldn't sink any money into a 2013 now with the big changes coming....

    i guess I'll go with the 2012 refurb since the only difference is that has well chip. Battery life isn't really a big issue since the only reason I'm buying a mba is for school, since it was the best cost benefit in the ultra book market.
    And I won't really use 120 gigs of storage cool thanks guys

    It's usually about 6 months before they hit the refurb store.
