Hey guys, My father's 3-4 year old MBP is aging. Battery doesn't hold charge anymore, aluminum is bent.. etc. so I decided to buy a new system for him. I managed to find a site called Macmall and they are currently selling the previous generation of Macbook Air (2.13Ghz C2D, 4GB 256GB) for $1149 and the current model (i5, 4GB, 256GB) for $1235. Now, I personally know how much difference i5 will give me (i5 is ranked < 100 on the cpu benchmark where as the C2D is ranked 167 ish) but will this affect my father's daily task? He uses his computer for: 1. Web surfing, watching youtube videos. 2. Word processing. 3. Sometimes imports music to iTunes to burn CDs. He recently received a huge music collection from my brother and it feels like he would like to have the luxury to keep some of his music in his SSD. Furthermore, he wants to have Windows 7 installed so he can use exclusive softwares. Now, I have no intention to spend $1500 on a MBA as I personally think it's too overpriced so my choice comes down to these two. Does the previous generation really suck? Should he really suck it up and get the current gen? I honestly don't know if he will need that much space but I assume time will tell. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks for your help in advance.
