Hi :)

I am going to buy Macbook Air, I want it for school and photoshop lightroom especialy.
Problem is, that I want windows for some especially aplications for school projects,... Thats mean, I will instal in bootcamp win 7 with about 40gb.

I deciding between 2011 or 2012 base models. I can save about 150.
I thinking, that a get rather 2011 model with 256gb.

What do you thing ? :) Thanks and sorry for my english :)

With BC Win7 and Lightroom, that space is going to go very quickly.

I'd recommend an external drive for the Lightroom catalog if you're going to get an Air.

Yes i have external disc.

I dont know what model I may buy.
2011 base used model its for 750€
2012 base used model is for 900-1000€
2012 with 8gb RAM is for 1150€.

What you think?

I don't think I'd consider less than 256GB of space if you plan to install a Windoze partition also.

get 256gb and max out ram 8GB. 2011 or 2012 model doesnt matter. its a good machine and youll never go wrog with either.
