Hmmmmm... is it worth me spending the extra money on a newer machine? Probably not.

If you assume that the Air will be undated at WWDC, I would wait to see what new features are released. Especially since you would be two generations behind at that point. 2 GB of RAM is probably the most concerning spec to me.

That's only a decision you can make. But if you are looking at the new Macs coming out, you can likely have it in your hands in less than a month.

everyone says that the 2011's have crappy battery life. i don't know from experience. it's also nice to have at least 4GB of RAM.

Even Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal, on his recent Spring guide to laptop buying, point #1, WAIT.
