i think MBA no retina right? if have, i won't have to consider option 1.

its the ivy bridge and USB3 that tempts me to get 2012 model.

btw im using it for business so, loading of excel spreadsheets and websites are crucial

MBA has no Retina. Not now anyway.

So basically it's question of whether $650 pays for Ivy Bridge, USB3.0, and extra 128GB of flash. Of course other little bits like faster processor and better webcam. I would still go for the 2012 MBA to be slightly more future-proof. But if you have a tight budget, $950 seems like a good deal too!
