Hi everyone, this is my first post so I apologise if I am in the wrong section. Anyway, I've always been a windows person until recently. I am looking into buying a Macbook of some kind to accompany me next year and I rather fancy the MBA. My price range is approximately £1100 ish but I can stretch to about £1300 if totally necessary although I would rather not. I already have a beast of a desktop that runs all of the software that I use to create my University work but ideally I would like the mac to be able to do the following as I may possibly be moving to Japan next year and I cannot bring my desktop with me. So portability is relatively important. The list: Basic tasks, word processing, presentations, interweb surfing etc. Editing video (quite heavily, I will be shooting in 1080p or 720p 60FPS most of the time) Blogging Editing photos (captured from a DSLR) Basic 3D modelling Basic/Light animation Very light gaming (E.g. RTS games from back in the day) Some programs that are a necessity for me are: Adobe Photoshop Word/Excel etc. Autodesk Maya Autodesk 3DS Max (I am aware I would need a windows partition for this) Possibly some applications that will allow me to program. (Something I may take up in my spare time) I am doing a games design degree, and if I do move to Japan, I will be there as a teacher for a while so I would like to do some Game Design related stuff in my spare time. Many thanks for any help you can give me.
