    Comparing the updated MacBook air and pro 13 inch, for the high end version of both models, which laptop comes out better for performance? Add the 8GB of Memory instead of 4GB and potentially the 2.0GHz i7 upgrade to the air and does it bring it up to higher level than the pro?

    Primary use is for study needs (so portability is important) as well as music, videos, and games such as the GTA's, sports games and games like Civ V.

    Is the pro too heavy? Is the air to structurally flimsy?

    The Pro will be the better performer in CPU. The pro has the mobile Ivy Bridge CPU while the Air has the ultra low voltage version (lower performance).

    The Air is not flimsy and the pro isn't too heavy....
    If you want to play any games, the Pro will be better than the Air.
