My wife has the base 2011 11" 2/64 MBA. She's been going nuts with iPhoto and that library file is nearing 15GB, leaving just over 1GB of free space on the integrated SSD drive. At my local Best Buy, they have a couple of open-box 2011 MBAs that I was thinking to get her to replace the one she has. After tax and all, I can get: A.) 2011 MBA 11" 4/128 for $955.75 (w/box and charger and docs) B.) 2011 MBA 13" 4/128 for $1079.50 (no box, just laptop and charger) I know she's content with her 11" size, but she has commented that my 13" MBA has a nice big screen. I know it seems that the 13" might be a better deal, but is it since eventually when I sell it it's without a box? or should I go with this option: C.) Just backup most of the photos to an external drive and wait for a 2012 model. Thanks!
