Apple rolls out new, cheaper MacBook Airs - CNN.com (http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/29/tech/innovation/apple-macbook-air/index.html?hpt=hp_c3)

Price drop; CPU bump... Dave yawns.

Personally, I'm waiting to see the rumored redesign later this year. Even then, I have no need to upgrade until they increase the available RAM.

Up to 12 hours of battery life on the 13" MacBook Air...pretty amazing!:)

I like the price drop (small as it is) but I agree about the basic memory configuration. I was hoping they would go with 8 GB as basic and offer an upgrade to 16 GB. I really don't understand why they didn't do that. The extra USB 3 port (now 2) is nice and the SD card slot on the 13" model is also handy. Battery life is impressive but like anything else, your mileage may vary on that one. ;D
