I'm looking to purchase my first MacBook, I've been a windows user for ever and I'm excited to switch. I'm currently debating between the 2015 MacBook Air, base model with 128gb ssd and 8gb ram vs the 2016 MacBook Pro base model. The pricing for me to purchase these brand new with current discount is $1185.37 & $2017.05, these are Canadian prices including taxes. For the purpose of best bang for your buck and longetivity is it worth spending the extra $830 on the 2016 MacBook? I'm a light user of laptops, just typical small applications and such .
