    A friend of mine is going to buy the 11'' MBA with 8GB of RAM and the 256GB Flash, however he is still undecided (he is not swimming in money) wether to spend an extra 170 USD (yes that is the difference in Europe) for the extra processor power (from 1.7 GHz to 2.0 GHz).

    He will use the MBA to browsing, reading mails, maintain his website and sometimes load a couple of home made videos to put on his website and/or Facebook.

    What is your opinion ?

    Thanks !

    The 1.7 GHz CPU will suffice for the stated computational needs.

    Thanks ! That was what I thinked but it is always good to get you expert opinions. What I am not quite sure is if the price diference for the 13'' is worth it (I do tend to think that 11'' can be a very small screen..........)
