    Hi, I'm planning on buying the 11" MacBook Pro and would like to know what some of the current owners think of them!

    I'm looking at the baseline £849 entry level model.

    I'm selling a 13" June 2012 Pro for it which has an SSD and 16GB of RAM, but it's in quite a state! So I'm looking forward to the new warranty and proper condition of a new Mac.

    I'm also going to be carting it around a lot, so the smaller size and weight will be helpful! :)

    Has anyone else made a move from a 13" machine to this?

    Thanks

    Do you mean Air? From my 13" black macbook this was absolute luxury :) Its sooo thin :) and my friend's iPad 1 feels almost heavy compared to it. 11" was the perfect size for me as it fits in a bag easy as pie as its basically the size of an A4 sheet of paper. What happened to your Pro btw? And are you selling it? I would like a Pro to add to my collection :).

    Btw if you are worried about power, dont as I can run Skyrim at max at around 30fps and everything works fine... And mine is a previous model... I would however recommend the 8GB of Ram for futureproofing, the i7 not so much. Also either get a larger internal HDD or buy an external Hard Drive...

    I went from 2008 15" MacBook Pro > 2011 13" MacBook Air > 2013 11" MacBook Air.

    Very happy all around with the new computer (i7/8gb/512gb). It's a very fast little machine and the size is terrific for travel. At home I use an external keyboard and a big screen.

    Thanks guys!

    Just sold on eBay there now in the UK, I've just enough to get the 11" so I look forward to getting it!


    Looking forward to the HD 5000 graphics too, is that good performance on Minecraft? haha :)
