So, I've never been anti Mac, but I used to play games a lot so I never really was able to justify a MacBook over a gaming laptop. I'm currently using a 15.7 inch system76 laptop, but my needs have changed a lot. I also really don't play games on my pc anymore. Basically, I'll be using my future Mac for smaller indie games, lots of word processing, minor design work for marketing in photoshop or photoshop like software (acorn 4 looks pretty cool), lots of web browsing, and some pro tools recording in the future for some minor on the go projects and loops for live performances. I know that for pro tools would work better on a quad core, but I don't honestly think that avid will update it for a retina display soon. I know a MacBook Air will fit my needs for the most part, but my question is this: Is the performance snappy on the new MacBook Air with an i7? I tested a retina 13 at the apple store and was really disappointed with general scrolling on websites and iTunes. So does this laptop feel fast and would it be able to suit my daily and heavy computer use? Thanks guys for the help I know there are a lot of threads on this one, but I figured I'd make it a little more personalized.
