    SLIGHTLY OT: Really? How does it perform? I've been holding off my wife's 2015 13" MBA upgrade to High Sierra, but this might help convince me.

    @makinao I owned an MBA 2013 which I upgraded to High Sierra, no difference in performance naman. I don't do heavy tasks though in that laptop since I owned an iMac then...

    ^ Also just upgraded to High Sierra last weekend on a 2012 MBA after putting off the upgrade for quite some time now

    My available free space increased from 16GB to 26GB probably because of the APFS

    Been contemplating on getting the MBA 11". Just having second thoughts because it's a 2015 model. Did they upgrade something in the recent release?

    Finally gave in and bought a Macbook Air 11 from BTB Greenhills this afternoon.
    After months of contemplating as to which notebook should I get for school, I think the MBA 11 2015 would suffice as I'll mainly use it for my papers, some research and Excel work.

    I'm a Mac virgin hence I've spent the whole day tinkering this baby.

    For those who are looking for this variant, they still have stocks at BTB Galleria and City of Dreams (based on Lana's reply on my inquiry).

    Apparently. Was also surprised to see that in the list. But they didn't have the MBA11 2nd half of last year. Would have preferred the 11 over the 13 for its extreme portability.
