    Default Help me choose my MBA?

    Hi Everyone,

    My birthday is in November, I know, it's about 90 something days away.
    I'm going to treat myself to a MBA, my first Apple computer.

    Anyways, I'll probably use my MBA only for browsing (Firefox), MSN messenger and UTorrent.
    Will the basic $999 model work for me? Maybe upgrade to 4GB?

    Any advice is welcome!

    If your going to stick with the 11" model I would spend the extra $200 which gives you double the ram and double the hard drive capacity (4gb ram & 128gb ssd). I love the 13" model that I just bought. I had a netbook before and wanted a little more screen real estate so for me the 13" is perfect as opposed to going with the 11". After one week of using my MBA I can't really complain about anything. It's a pleasure to use. Enjoy your new MBA when you get it whatever configuration you choose!

    If all you're going to use it for is browsing, messaging, and pirating, you should save the $$ and get a netbook for 1/3 the price. Seriously.

    True, you could get something with tons more power and storage for a LOT less. That said, I understand that Mac allure...

    If u decide on getting the air be sure to max out on the ram. The way the air is built u can't add more ram later.

    I decided on purchasing the basic 13 inch model.
    Now I just need to wait until November.
