    Mods: any reason there isn't a sticky for "which MBA should I get?"/"upgrade RAM or CPU"/"11 inch or 13 inch"?

    Ahh the old 11 vs 13 and 4GB vs 8GB rolled into one!

    Get the 13 inch/4GB model refurbished to save some money.

    I own an 11" 128GB MBA and use it for everything that I use my MBP and iMac for... including editing graphics. I think that you'll enjoy having the full power of a macbook in something basically the size of an iPad.

    Some suggestions when you get it... set the dock to autohide, move the dock to the side (rather than the bottom), make liberal use of OSX's fullscreen mode.
