Did you regret buying the 11.6″ Macbook Air last year?
Yesterday, Apple refreshed their 11.6″ MAcbook Air that’s powered with the new Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, a huge leap from last year’s Core 2 Duo processor.
That’s barely 8 months ago when it was speculated that the reason for using the Core 2 Duo instead of the Core i3/i5 back then was that the chips would not fit with the slim form factor of the Macbook Air (it’s possible the Sandy Bridge chips are much thinner now).
On top of that, they’ve also reduced the starting price of the Macbook Air. It used to be Php52,990 then and now it’s just Php49,990.
Then again, my old MacAir is slowing down (especially when I’m doing Photoshop or iMovie) so this refresh is definitely a welcome upgrade. One thing remained the same though — those SSDs are still very expensive.
Been talking to a number of folks who also bought the first generation 11.6″ MacAir and we shared the same sentiments.
So to the few people out there who bought the first one, did you regret it when you learned about the new models?
