I just bought my MacBook Air in April 2013, now in June 2013 Apple have upgraded to a new model which is really unfair.  Can I change it?


MacBook Air (13-inch Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    no. but you can sell it and use the money towards the new model.

    I thought about it, but since I upgraded to the 2.0GHz Core i7 (TB up to 3.0Ghz), 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD, I doubt I would get close to what I paid!  Plus I wasinformed by Apple that they no longer do the 2.0Ghz so the only reason battery power is better is by sacrificing processing power (or so I am told).

     

    Surely if Apple had a decent upgrade to the newest model type service they may have a lot more loyal (and happie) fans.

    If Apple bought back all of the old hardware it sold, it's financials would look like Dell.

    Just do like I do.

     

    My family budget contains a line item of $2100 for new computer hardware each year.

     

    As a result, I have bought a new Mac each year for the last 6 years straight. The last three have been Airs.

     

    Do you think Apple has a loyal sucker, here? Maybe, but I am happie.
