    Had an issue with a Mac from Best Buy so they offered me the option to get a


    MBA 13" 4/128 for $1,025

    or

    MBP 13" 4/500 for $850

    I love both models, just curious what you guys all think? I think the MBA will have a better resale after 3 years, but the MBP is also a great system

    They are the same retail price.

    The MBP is by far the better value.

    Think Pro holds value better. (this statement could be incorrect)

    Air has slightly better resolution (1440x900 vs 1280x800).

    Pro has better storage capacity.

    Air will feel a lot faster due to SSD.

    You can upgrade SSD on Air thanks to OWC.

    You can upgrade to an SSD in Pro.

    You can put more memory in the Pro.


    So... can you live with 4 gig? Do you need more than 128 meg of storage right now?
