One of my main concerns is whether or not the 2012 MBA (1.8 Ghz i5, 4gb RAM, 128gb SSD) would be capable of running Logic Studio and POSSIBLY Final Cut Pro. I like to make music and edit video for fun. I know the rMBP is capable of that, replacing my desktop (iMac 24", 2.16 Intel Core 2 Duo, 2gb RAM, 250gb HDD) and more! I was initially considering blowing all my grad money on the rMBP, but with prep classes for my RN license test coming up this week, I wanna be able to get good notes. I have an iPad and a bluetooth keyboard, but find it uncomfortable to make notes on. I also want to take into consideration that taking the RN license test will cost $200 each time (should i need to repeat it! Hopefully not!). Although the idea of a financial safety net gives me a sense of security. Should I get the rMBP, wait to buy it until after I get a job later this year, or get a MBA as a temporary device to make notes (and make beats maybe)?
