I went to the Mac Store pretty convinced I was going to leave with a Macbook Pro. Basically I have a 5 year old macbook (the white one with a plastic case). It works fine, but everynow and then it gets bogged down and freezes, can't really edit videos anymore, and the operating system is 10.5. I saved up a bunch of money so I could move to Thailand and travel (sold cars for 8 months) and want to work on building an online business. Mainly just a lot of internet tabs open. Just bought a new camera with a microphone so that I can record videos for the business as well. I'll need to edit videos and photos but nothing like full feature films or anything, probably 10 minutes would be longest video I see myself making in the time being. Told the guy that I was going to use it for work, internet, and some light video editing. I was looking at a mid grade macbook pro, said I was ready to buy it and he told me to hold off for a second and look at the macbook air. Told me it was faster. I ended up just buying the most expensive macbook air. $1,900 was quite a bit to spend, but I figured the thing would be screaming fast and he told me it could edit videos. I took it home, took it out and turned it on. At first it was really slow, as in I was typing faster than the MBA was displaying the letters. I had it on for about 30-45 minutes and opening applications took long periods of time, seemed laggy, and I tried opening up photobooth and the image would freeze after 4 or 5 seconds, then resume to normal for 4 or 5 seconds, then freeze again. Did I choose the wrong laptop?
