Hi, First post for me I've been reading other people's posts and been googling for many hours but still cannot decide so I'm creating my own thread. Please let me know if I should post this somewhere else. I can't decide if I should get a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. I do not own a laptop at the moment as I threw my old windows laptop to the floor when it didn't do what I wanted it to. Instead I use my iphone and ipad but as I love gadgets I need a laptop as well. I have decided to go for a refurbished 13 inch 2012 model. I will use it for movies, web browsing and the office package. But who knows what interest I pick up once getting it. I will not bring it on travels as I've got the ipad for that so size and weight is not something I care about. Same thing with battery life, it would be on my desk plugged in. I like the idea of the new type of ssd storage, is the difference big compared to an old school hard drive? Storage amount is not something I care about either, 128 gb would be fine. I was planning to keep it for as long as possible (if i can avoid incidents similar to what happened to my windows laptop.) and therefore want something that will not be outdated in two weeks. Is 8gb ram the way to go here, for the future? I like the idea of being able to update the hardware down the road as well. I was looking at spending up to €1300 but prefer cheaper than that. I feel that the pro model would last me more years. Am I correct? Can you please give me some advice on this? Anything would be helpful. Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks! Edit: just saw I posted this to the wrong forum. Sorry about that, I'm new! Could an admin please move it to the correct forum?
