I am in the market for a new macbook but what should I choose? Macbook air 13" 2012 vs Macbook pro 13" 2012 (both the baseline models) I need this laptop to last me 4 years throughout University. My main uses are the usual web browsing and essays but also sometimes gaming (minecraft) and some video editing like once every 3 months. Who knows, I may want to start playing a new game that comes out in 2014. I want the laptop that will be able to last a while. With the pro I upgrade the ram and the Battery. That's pretty important for me because the battery may need replacing after 2-3 years. I might have to take it to Uni sometimes but I don't mind the weight of the pro. The air is much lighter and has an ssd but I can put one in the pro later. The screen on the air is higher res. but the pro has a higher colour gamut so that sort of cancels out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
