Please give me several opinions. I have asked this on another forum and gotten one answer. Disappointed. Ok, I want to order a MacBook Air 13". My budget is small however I am willing to spend those extra $ a Mac costs vs a PC. I am an older retired (former PC user) and my needs are small. I web surf, have numbers on my iPad that I use I spreadsheet in for budget/bills, have some photos, Facebook and that's about all. I read on my iPad, never will play games. I just think I need an ample machine to handle the seemingly annual Mac OS upgrades. So, I am planning to order 8 gb ram and 128 ssd. I just barely understand what ram and ssd are LOL I can't really afford 256 ssd so my question is, will 8 gb and 128 ssd get me thru the next few years? If not, my alternative is to buy windows 8 machine, uug I do know my iPad does a lot but I just had a 5 yo (basic) toshiba laptop die that I liked for flash needs and to scan pics. Thank you for any advice you might offer.
