TL;DR version: which is a better everyday laptop? a baseline 2011 11″ MBA vs a maxed-out 2010 13″ MBP Hi everyone. I have owned a 13-inch 2010 MBP for just under two years. I maxed it out to 8 GB RAM and 1 TB internal storage and have never had any problems with the machine. A couple of months ago I purchased a Mac Mini to replace the MBP as my main computer, leaving the MBP just for my more moderst mobility needs. Having tasted the lightness and convenience of the 11-inch MacBook Air, I sterted contemplating the idea of replacing my MBP with a MBA, now that I really need a laptop only for the basic mobile computing tasks. I put it up for sale for 749 euros and got a few offers already - it looks I might be able to sell the machine at this price. The problem is, at this point I really can't afford to pay much more for a computer. I found a good sale for the 11-inch MBA (around 730 euros, comfortably within my budget if I sell the MBP), but it's the older 2011 model and only in the baseline configuration - 2GB RAM and 64GB SSD. I have no problems with carrying an external drive when I need some extra storage for movies and stuff and I'm an iTunes Match subscriber so I won't need too much storage for music either. So my question is - is the baseline 2011 MBA a better and faster everyday mobile computer than a maxed-out 2010 MBP? Should I go through with the sale and purchase the MBA? Thanks a lot for your ideas.
