Long time lurker, first time poster. I currently own a C2D 2.1GHz, 15" HP Pavilion laptop that I've made small mods to over the years, so now it is 4GB Ram and a 465GB standard disk drive running Win7. Nothing amazing, but it gets me through small web development and light graphic design; though I want something a little more. I plan on starting grad school here in the summer, and know my wife and I will be in opposition for computer time, so I started looking at a second laptop. My wife would use the HP for her web browsing and Facebook stuff; while I wanted to upgrade to something slightly more powerful and much more travel friendly. Originally, did not want to pay over $1k for a computer with relatively similar specs as my current setup, but after the rave reviews MBA owners are experiencing, I am leaning heavily towards an 4GB Ram MBA over a 13" MBP. My only concern is if it can handle what all I throw at it. Work opened up from a 9-5 desk job to a more flexible and travel heavy, graphic design position. I need a computer that can handle graphic design CS5 Photoshop-y stuff, some web development, and some light video editing; along with the other stuff that I already know the MBA has no problem doing, like word editing and web browsing. The new 13" MBP resolution was extremely disappointing, and ultra-light MBA form factor is a huge plus for the MBA. My graphic design friends with MBPs think I'm crazy for considering an MBA, but my MBA toting friends (who at the most do light graphic design) keep telling me I won't regret it. I don't do any gaming, so graphics is a mute argument in my case. I know it can handle light photoshop, and I wouldn't be designing building side billboards with 100s of layers. I would mostly be designing conceptual marketing flyers, brochures, web design, & video based promotions. Simple, just not what I would consider "light". So, anyone use (or has tried to use) the MBA as their primary computer for graphic design?
