    If given an opportunity to chose between these 2 MacBook airs which would you choose

    8gb 256SSD MacBook Air 13inch 2012 , Core i5 1.8Ghz, Cycle Count 6 - (Full charge Capacity 6510maH)Battery Health condition(Normal) Price $350

    vs
    4gb 128SSD MacBook Air 13inch 2014 ,Core i5" 1.4, Cycle Count 1061 (Full charge Capacity 5304mah), Battery Health condition(Replace Soon) Price $325

    To be fair the 2012 Model has a better body while the 2014 model has some scratches and a frayed power cable

    The extra RAM and storage space in the first one listed would make me go for that one. You would be much happier with the performance of that one, rather than the second one I feel. Not only that, but it sounds like it is in better condition as well.

    I will almost always choose the one with the most RAM.

    In addition to the better RAM and storage options, the battery health of the 2012 is a better sign.

    I know that I could (barely) live with the 8 GB/256 GB and definitely not with the 4 GB/128 GB. The 2015 has a Geekbench about 15% faster than the 2012, so it's not a huge difference. I believe that the 2012 supports Mojave as well.

    If the RAM can be upgraded then go with the device that’s 3 years newer, however, if you’re only going to surf the web, stream some videos and music, check email and stuff of that nature then take the device with the most RAM.
