- 128GB vs 256GB SSD?
- 4GB vs 8GB RAM?
- 1.3GHz i5 vs 1.7GHz i7?

I will mostly be using the computer for multitasking between listening to music/Youtube video and doing some work using Parallels. I play occasional gaming like Counter-Strike and DOTA2. Please help me choose, thanks!

Okay... So I get the whole thing about battery life, and I couldnt care less. How much has the performance improved from the last gen-MBA, if any?

Haswell performance: I don't know. Flash: 45% faster. We'll see, but the GPU is 40% faster, so that's good.

Sunny England!
I'm considering an 11" i7, 8GB ram, 128GB flash for a summer purchase.

Enough speed for the apps I use, enough ram for some future proofing, more than enough storage to everything I need on the move (already have external storage at home), and it's stupidly light and portable. For those occasions when I need a little more power than my iPad mini can provide.

Really on the fence about getting the 13.3 256GB/8GB RAM without the i7.. just kinda bummed about no display resolution changes with this refresh. Maybe I'll wait and see what happens to the 13" rMBP.
