    I just bought a MacBook Air 2010, but I'm asking this for some future information.
    When I'm in college, should I use a macbook air or macbook pro? I would do music and movie playing, Microsoft word, powerpoint etc.

    Hello,
    If you are just listening to music, surfing the web and doing word processing/powerpoint etc. Then you should be fine with the air.

    I would keep the Air. My 15" MBP + textbooks in my backpack feels a bit heavy to me. I would consider buying an external LCD for the Air. Would be nice for when you are back at your place. You can get a nice LCD for under $150.

    I think you made the right choice going with the Air. Do you feel there is something you need to do that the Air can't?

    I would go with the Air if I were you. I use mine for similar purposes - in addition to development work.

    It can't connect to some devices, and it's too slow for a professional photoshopper, and it's not a great games machine ...
