    I cannot decide between the pro and the air.
    I travel a lot, school-library-friends places-etc, etc...I'm a college student.
    I am currently using a windows gateway computer and decided to enter the mac realm.

    Ok so here is what I normally do with a laptop:

    - Documents for school assignments (am not in art/design)
    - Casual surfing + youtube + streaming movies
    - Downloading music (through frostwire/limewire), movies, torrent files (3gb+)
    - Converting downloaded movies for my iPhone using Handbrake or such

    Could the Air handle my normal usage? Or do I need the pro?
    My main concern is downloading (movies) and converting downloaded files would the Air be too slow for this?

    Excuse my ignorance on computer knowledge, I am not a guru when it comes to this kind of stuff.

    BTW I do not edit photos, videos, play games, etc, etc...

    Any 2011 MBA will handle all this easily. Getting a MBP for your needs is overkill and unnecessary.
