I have a mid 2010 MBP 13", 4GB RAM, 250GB HD. Wife's PC laptop fan is LOUD (I can change it, but its almost 4 years old and I'm not sure its worth the trouble) so she needs a replacement. My thought is to return my iPad 64GB (which I honestly don't need) and buy an Air for myself and hand the MBO down to her. $999 (-$50 student discount) for 13" (128GB SSD) $1099 (-$50 student discount) for 11" (256GB SSD) Basically even buying the 11", it will only cost me $350 more (plus taxes). If I take that same $350 and buy her a cheap PC, that wouldn't be a good PC for her. What do you advise?
