The size of the updates actually matter for the MBA 64GB

if a 133 mb update is a big issue for you then you shouldn't be using an ssd

As if a person owning a Macbook Air has a choice?


If you want choice then you shouldn't be owning a Mac anyway.

That's less than 1/4 of 1% of the space on a 64GB MBA, and it replaces files, not just adds to them, so I really wouldn't worry about it.

Ohh, I wonder if this will fix certain issues like heavy throttling of the rMBP. :)

Seriously thinking about one of these. Small yet way more powerful than iPad.


Off-topic a bit, yes, but that's what I did. I dumped my iPad for a MacBook Air, and I haven't even thought about touching the iPad ever since. It's been a few months now. Sure, they're two different device, but for the things that I used my iPad for, the Air handles perfectly, too.

I don't have that issue.


here's how to reproduce it:

attach external display
goto display settings in sys prefs
set it to more space:

set arrangement: external display directly on top, laptop screen on bottom. MAKE SURE THE WHITE BAR IS IN THE EXTERNAL DISPLAY ON TOP


move a large window around in the retina macbook screen
see this video:

it's a known issue with OSX
confirmed and reproduced it at a Genius Bar with their own retina macbooks.
