What can you do with it that you can't do on windows? I was thinking of picking up a refurb macbook air from the apple site(can you buy it in person or is it online only) and when in class if there was no wifi I would use my iPhone data connection to tether it. I would also pick up an iPad mini to carry around with me too, I know iTunes and Safari are way better on a mac but what about iPhone usage? Sorry for the multiple questions I had to combine them since the mac forum is like... dead and I know the macbook air isn't as strong as the pro but I don't really do a lot of daunting tasks, usually browse the internet, watch a few movies, listen to some music on itunes, sometimes play games on miniclip. Anything that the mac will struggle doing I'll just switch to my dell laptop.
