Looking at the 13" Macbook Air for the missus. There are currently a few places that have the 2013 version a hundred or so dollars off. The only difference I can see between the 2013 and 2014 version is an ever so slight CPU upgrade (1.3 to 1.4). Are there any good reasons to get the more expensive new model? EDIT : a little googling and it looks like the new models are ever so slightly faster overall, but for disk intensive tasks the are actually slower. It appears Apple have put cheaper/slower SSDs in the new models to reduce costs...

Don't worry, decision made :) JB have a special on the old models which are basically the same so I'll go with that while the sale is on!

I bought an MBP about a week before that sale. D: On another note, Mavericks is quite the piece of shit, is it not.

I just bought myself a 2014 model Air. What's wrong with Mavericks. I don't have anything to compare it to. Rob.

Quicklook is clunky, Finder occasionally hangs for some unknown reason, scroll bar disappears, mouse cursor disappears occasionally. No major dramas, but I was on a 2008 black macbook before this and was expecting a huge step up in responsiveness, so I'm a bit disappointed.
