I was just thinking how much I like my MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2014). It's the base model, it's MSRP was $999 but I got it for $750 plus sales tax thru a couple of Best Buy discounts. You can't beat that price. I am a pretty basic computer user so the stock RAM and hard drive are fine with me, I only use about 55 Gigs as it is, and external or cloud storage is cheap if the need arises. The only change I would like is the display. It's pretty poor the way it is, the cheap ASUS external monitor I connect it to blows the MBA's display away as far as clarity. So my perfect laptop would be the 13" MBA in the same size body but with a 14" retina display (smaller bezel to make up for it) while keeping the current awesome battery life.
