First post! So I have been a windows user my entire life (which isn't much since I'm still only in high school ), but now I'm looking to jump ships. I know I definitely want a MacBook Air since I can use it for my senior year of high school and then the four years of college. I was looking around online and I found a great deal for the 2011 MacBook Air 11'' 2gb RAM / 64 GB SSD. I know that I want the 11'' for it's beauty/portability (plus, I'm planning to get a ~20 inch external screen to install in my dorm, and I can take the laptop to classes). I'm not too concerned about the SSD either since I can always use an external hard drive. The only part I'm worried about is the RAM. I'm going to be using this laptop mainly for web browsing + YouTube, writing papers + notes, downloading movies/music, email, and that's pretty much it. Would the 2GB of RAM be sufficient for this? Since I'm going to be a neuroscience major, I really don't think I'll have any intensive video-photo editing or coding. I might play the occasional game, but I doubt that as well. I'm only worried because I'm going to be using this MacBook for the next 5 years. Many people have told me that I should only get the 2GB RAM if I'm planning to replace in 2-3 years, but I don't think my activities will use that much. I found the model mentioned above at $600, so it's a FANTASTIC deal. I want to grab it up before anyone else, so urgent replies are helpful. Upgrading to 4 GB RAM is expensive and I would like to avoid it if I could. Any thoughts? P.S. Thank you for reading this long post!
