So here's my situation, I know I'm getting a macbook air. I have money right now so I could get the 2012 model for about 900 at best buy, whenever I decided to go up there basically. But the 2013 model will come out in about a week, and then i'd probably have to wait another week or two after that and get more paychecks before I'd have enough money for that one. The main differences are a faster processer and 12 hours of battery life instead of 7... I feel like I won't really notice the processor that much because I don't really do any HD video editing or gaming or anything like that, but the almost double battery life is kind of intriguing. I also have a computer now that's pretty shitty so I'm kind of anxious to replace it. Keeping in mind that I'll be using the new one for college, you guys think it's worth it to wait the extra few weeks and get one with longer battery life and a pricetag that's a couple hundred higher, or should I just grab last years at a discounted price now? Longer battery life sounds great and everything but I'm not sure what situation I'd ever actually need 12 hours of battery life... but I've never been a college student before either, so I don't know.
