I'm going to college soon, so what should I buy? They are of similar price range. MBA 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor Turbo Boost up to 2.6GHz Intel HD Graphics 5000 4GB memory 128GB SSD Vaio Pro 13" 1,920 x 1,080 touchscreen display 1.5GHz dual-core Core i7 (Haswell) processor; 4GB RAM; 128GB PCIe SSD drive 1.06 kg Windows 8 Pro NFC enabled touchpad I've seen them in person and they are both quality machines, well the MBA has a stronger iGPU, and nearly twice longer battery life (with similar usage), but the Vaio has a better screen, a little stronger CPU, a touch screen and is lighter and smaller. I'm used to both Mac OS and Windows. Although this is a Mac forum, I hope you folks could give me the most non-biased opinions possible. Many thanks.
