So, I have not been following Mac-related news for a while since I haven't had to buy a new Mac in ages. However, the time might be close if I return to school in August (which I most likely am). I will be needing a notebook, and I am tempted to go for the base model MacBook Air 11" with the education discount: http://store.apple.com/us-hed/buy-mac/macbook-air However, I am also considering the base model MacBook Air 11" refurbished: http://store.apple.com/us/product/F...nch-macbook-air-13ghz-dual-core-intel-core-i5 But, I am confused . . . 1) Are they the same model? The only difference I can see is the refurbished model being 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 and the new model being 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5. 2) Is this a big difference in processing power? 3) Are there other differences that I am missing? The refurbished model says it is the version from June 2013. 4) What is the release date is for the new (non-refurbished) 11" base model Air that I linked to? Thanks!
