You should visit my state.... You'll feel better about your state.

In other news, this MacBook Pro is a sexy piece of hardware.

I highly recommend picking one up.

So THIS is what an i7 quad core processor can do! I love it! LOL
Are MacBook Air's that slow? Or just that much slower than what you bought? They are the one Apple product I've thought about buying some day in the next couple of years. My current laptop is a 2.3 GHZ, i3 Asus laptop.

Love my Macbook (even if it's just an i7 2013 model)

Best thing is how quickly and how much you can sell your used Apple products for. Never got into the whole iPhone shindig though.

It was just slower than what I bought. The 2.2ghz i7 in my Pro is just a bit faster than the 1.3ghz i5 in the Air.

The MacBook Air is a great laptop... I used it for over a year and loved it... then I got the iPad Air 2 a couple months ago (with retina display) and fell in love with that.

Problem is, Air doesn't have the retina display (yet) and I've been debating on whether or not I wanted to upgrade for the last month or so.

When I saw the $100 off sale I went for it... I had went to the post office a couple months ago and got a mover's 10% coupon that was surprisingly accepted... for an extra $190 off.

A steal of a deal and I'm happy.

MacBook Air was my first Apple laptop and it's a fine purchase... but after 16 months I was ready to upgrade.

Yeah... that's what's great about Apple... the resale value is there. I sold my 64GB iPhone 5s in September for $450... and it was a year old.

I paid $999 for the Air in September 2013... and sold it for $500 in January 2015. I could have maybe gotten $550 or even $600 but there were quite a few listed on Craigslist at those prices so I undercut just a bit and it sold... in 15 minutes.

From the time I listed it till the time I was meeting the buyer at the coffee shop was less than an hour.

That's Apple resale for ya...
