    now I want to switch back to the 11'' but my 14 days is up :'(

    convince me that I made the right choice!

    I spend almost my entire day at a desk, use my mac mostly for reading papers, working on word documents, light editing on photoshop....

    My head knows i dont need the 11, but my heart yearns for it back. can you guys please convince me that I was correct in choosing the 13?

    If somebody has to convince you that you made the right choice to switch you probably didn't.

    You made the right choice because it's the choice you made and you know it's right because you chose it. Now you're free to worry about something else! :)

    It's bigger, but still relatively small, and looks just as pretty?

    OK now lets talk about why u should had gone for Coke rather than Pepsi.

    It is slow news day?

    I got the 11" because I take it with me everywhere. But if your sit at your desk all day then you answered your own question. DUH!

    It's only 2" bigger, the difference isn't THAT huge.

    I tried the 11in Before I got my 13in Immediately After receiving the 11 in the mail I wanted the 13.. Its just personal preference. The 11 was way too small for me.. but I think the 13in Compared to the 11 isn't that bad only 2 inches..

    If yours has 8GB of RAM I'll trade you my 8GB 11" Macbook Air for your 13" :).

    Go to the Apple Store and beg, they're sometimes lenient about that kind of thing.

    Better battery life is what you should consider. 11 seems to be an eye candy though :)

    How far off are you from the 14 days?

    I've gotten them to take my return after missing it by 3 days. Be courteous and respectful to the representative and they'll work with you. I don't recommend whining or complaining, it's better to be straight forward and honest with your reasons. It doesn't hurt to give Apple a call about it.

    Just go back to the  store and change it out. A manager would just need to override to approve. No big deal.

    But he doesn't have a reason. Says his heart and his head are in a battle, so one day to the next we don't know who wins! ;)

    Keep it unless you want to try to sell it and use the funds from the sale towards another 11''.

    Sounds like a hassle compared to just continuing to use the 13'', but if you really want the 11'' back it's worth it.

    Everyone is different. I tried the 11 and it was just too small for me. The 13 inch was PERFECT having used a 15.4 for a long time. Now I'm playing around with a Chromebook (11 inch) and I'm more used to it. But still, 13 inch is just about right for me - 11 is a tad bit too small.

    I LOVE my 13", compared to the 11" I find it a great mixture of screen estate, portability and battery life. The 11" is too small for me for prolonged work sessions. YMMV, but personally I'm really happy with mine.

    You did make the right choice, I have a 11' and I'm looking forward to getting a Haswell 13' next year. The 11' is very portable yes, but after a while you will wish you had a slightly bigger screen. Especially if you the MBA several hours every day!

    I have a 13 and love it. I have it hooked up to a monitor at home but the 13 inches is good when traveling. I came from a 15 inch mbp and was scared teh 11 would be too small.:)

    people who use the 11' Macbook Air as their main home machine miss the point...

    Macbook Air 11' is perfect for work and travelling....for your home you need a desktop machine like a mini with big Display or iMac.

    That's true only if you like to work from a desk.

    I too switched from 15in to 13in, 13in is the perfect size IMO.

    I have an 11" and absolutely love it

    To be honest it sounds like you've made a rather costly mistake
