Ok, I've just joined up here today to ask this question. Bit of background - I'm currently a Windows user and use my laptop for just surfing the net, downloading movies and music, and sometimes writing the odd document. So my needs don't justify a MBP at all, I know this. I would go for the MB if the spec wasn't so dated and they had a new one out anytime soon but who actually knows if they will have. Could I get away with buying an MBA for my needs? I really don't need portability so don't use that as a factor. I think 13" might be out of my budget but 11" 128GB is ok. Obviously I need to check it out in the Apple store and see if 11" is big enough screen. But otherwise what do people think? Sorry if it's a post people are bored of, I understand.
