    13MBP will cover all my needs, just wondering can 13MBA (4Gb) do roughly the same?

    I need to carry it with me to work everyday.

    After the extra RAM from Apple, the MBA13" will be a little bit more expensive.

    Which one should I get?

    I say wait for MBP refresh for Q1 2011, unless you really need a lappy now of course. I'd personally go for the air but i'd have to pick the 2.13ghz processor to future proof...

    Depends on what you need.

    The MBP has a faster CPU, backlit keyboard, more ports including FW800.

    The MBA will probably seem faster because of the SSD drive which makes a huge difference. Its thinner, lighter. The display is higher resolution.
