I wasn't sure if I should post this on the MBP or the MBA forum...and not sure if I would get biased replies. I just need some help making a decision on which preowned MacBook is the best buy as far as performance and value...bang for the buck, is concerned. I am looking at either a 2012 MacBook Pro or a 2013 MacBook air from two local sellers. I have communicated with both, and believe them both to be legit and trustworthy folks. Both have remaining Apple Care coverage that can be transferred. The '13 Air is the 256gb model...and the '12 Pro has a 500gb hard drive and 4gb memory. Both have the i5 processor. Both are in pristine condition. Both can be had for $800. I am not a computer programmer, do any video work or graphic engineering. I will use either for basic computing, web surfing, message/sermon writing (I'm a pastor), and it will be more a replacement for a desktop home computer than anything. I do like the idea of a CD disc drive in the Pro...but it's not a deal breaker. Could I get some wise feedback on which one is (in your opinions) the better choice and best deal given their respective year models and that both have been negotiated to where I can by either for the same price...whether that's good or bad. You guys here are a heck of a lot smarter about Macs than I...and I am just a rank OSX newbie. Thanks for your help!
