I am switching setups and am wrestling with a notebook dilemma I am currently selling my MBP (early 2008). I am planning to replace it with: - iMac 24" at home on my desk to do the heavier stuff. - MacBook Air SSD OR MacBook pro 13" for on the road. Maybe you guys can help me decide with which notebook I should go for, cause I sure as hell can't. I am going to use the notebook to do basic email, internet, music, write papers (looking through lots of PDF's, using iWork and office a lot), watch a movie from time to time (on the train), etc. You know the basic stuff, I just have to be able to carry my books, while still being able to take my notebook with me. I am also starting to travel a lot starting next month so it's got to be light and easy to carry around You would probably say from this info that I should go for the MBA, but I have a few concerns about it: - Is it fast enough to switch rapidly between apps? (I'm an IT pro, so I need very fast app switching and snappy response from the machine) - Do you have problems with the lack of firewire, I use a lot of external HD's, but they can be connected through my USB hub so it's not that big of a problem) - Is the SSD worth the extra €200? - I've heard the SSD slows down over time, anyone has any experience with that? I can afford both of them, so that's not the issue. Thanks in advance guys!
