Hi there, I just recently sold my rev a mba and was originally planning to buy the new 11 inch mba. However, I have now discovered that my max. budget is £1000 and for that money I could choose from the following options... A) 1.4ghz, 4gb ram, 64gb ssd mba 11" + office for mac + usb midi keyboard B) 1.6ghz, 2gb ram, 128gb ssd mba 13" C) MBP 13" 2.4ghz, 4gb ram, 250gb hd + usb midi keyboard + office for mac Each of the three has its pros and cons. Im really in love with the MBA, and it's light weightness. Also it's instant on ability, and the fact it opens apps straight away. IMO its awesome! However, I'd like my 2nd mac to last at least 4 or 5 years. my previous mac became really slow, showing up the infamous beachball every time I loaded Safari, it became a pain. I'm just not sure whether the 11 inch MBA would be able to cut it. My usage daily is just heavy web browsing, iTunes, Office, and occasionally video editing in FCE 4 & iMovie. Also i'd be uploading photo's to iPhoto. Speaking of which, thats where the 13 inch MBA shines for me, it has an SD card slot!! But if I go with the 13 inch MBA, although it has many advantages, I don't feel it has that much increased portability over the MBP, and also I feel theres less value for money. A MBP has all those features plus more, yet it lacks that sparkle, the ssd, the instant on ability... So I just wanted to ask you guys what you think about my situation. What laptop would you recommend? P.S I'd love to have a MIDI keyboard to take advantage of Garageband '11 so I can learn how to play the keyboard! P.P.S Forgot to mention, im 16 and will soon be starting sixth form/college and after that university. so portability would be good for me Thanks!
