depends on your needs. Do you want the light portability of the air, or would you rather have a bit more power and storage while loosing the form factor.

If the MacBook Air suits your needs, than you probably don't have any reason to upgrade to a machine that has more power than you need.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

It's much easier to make a decision like this once you remove the emotion of the prospect of getting a shiny new toy.

Think about the way Apple has improved their notebook line over the years. By the time you've reach the end of your Apple Care warranty, there will likely be a model that is 10 times better than both yours and your friend's machine and costs hundreds of dollars less than yours did when it was new.

I'd just wait.
