    Hi everyone. I am new to this forum so if I make any mistakes please forgive me. I would like to run Nvivo 9 program on the latest MBA. Requirement recommended for this program is:

    Processor : 2.0 GHz Pentium 4-compatible processor or faster
    Memory : 2 GB RAM or more
    Display : 1280 x 1024 screen resolution or higher
    Operating System : Microsoft Windows 7
    Hard Disk : Approximately 2 GB of available hard-disk space – or
    more depending on data storage needs.
    Other : Internet connection

    I am eyeing MBA 11 inch 1.63GHz/4 gig Ram (simply love the small screen) or MBA 2.13 GHz/4 gig Ram. Anyone knows which puppy is suitable? :)

    Thanks so much.

    Even the 1.4GHz C2D is WAY FASTER than a 2GHz Pentium 4.

    Pentium 4 is a single core Core 2 Duo is dual core (2 Processors on one die)

    Pentium 4 = Donkey
    Core 2 Duo = Car
    Core i5,i7 = Plane

    This is a bit over-exaggerated...
