    Hey guys,

    I'm looking at getting an 11 inch MacBook air second hand for £500. It has 1.4ghz C2D, 2GB ram and 64GB SSD. Is this worth me getting? Is 2GB ram really sufficient? Or should I spent £150 more on a MacBook pro and slowly upgrade that myself. This is also still in warranty. It will be used for browsing, some editing in flash and photoshop and general email. This needs to last me a quite a while without slowing. Opinions please :)

    who buys a 2GB ram laptop, it is out now. the new trend is at least 4GB ram.

    It's like saying should you get a windows 98 it's FREE.

    Dont' compromise quality, speed for money. If you can't afford a good one, wait, and save up for a good one.

    I prefer Charmin Extra Stronge. It does not ball up on the wipe :D

    Get a 13" MacBook Pro! It comes standard with 4 GB RAM. You can then add an SSD later on.

    It will out perform a MacBook Air in every way.

    The MacBook Pro also has a better Color Gamut.
