I have gone to the Apple Store twice lately to check out the Macbook Air and the 13 inch Pro. Every time an Apple employee will come over and ask about what my needs are etc. I tell them, I'm a college student, not sure of my major yet, but sometimes I do a little bit of video editing. Nothing really ever major, just some small hobby stuff. Occasionally I'll make some sort of video at school. I've been doing this on my current 2008 Aluminum MBP with 2gb of ram, and its sloooow, but I'm managing. I feel like if my current computer could do this, then the air will be a breeze at doing it. The Apple guy will immediately tells me that I won't be happy with the Air and that I am just paying for a smaller enclosure. He will then take me to the 13 inch MBP. Is there really that much of a performance difference between the two, in which I would not be happy with the Air? It kind of seems like I'd be happier with the air, with the fast SSD, and the better resolution, but they never mention that.
