Just got my 11" mid-2012 MacBook Air yesterday. (i7/8gb/256) The overall performance meets my expectations, except for one thing: Weird speaker problem. Compared with my old 2011 11" MBAir (i7/4gb/128), new air is much worse. The music feels weak, cheap, distorted: lows not strong enough while mid/high feels thin and broken It's hard to describe but the difference is so dramatic, like a $10 and $200 headphone, I could tell there's definitely something wrong from the 1st second. I can't believe this is Apple product. 2012 MBA users please comment, if you ever owned 2011 air that's even better. Is it just me or a common issue?
