Hi all, this seems to be a common dilema for a lot of students looking at new macs at the moment. Basically, I start back at college in a few weeks where I'll be working 9-5, 5 days a week on both my coursework, but also some basic (really basic) adobe design and iMovie stuff for some projects too. I'll be travelling a lot so weight is quite important and I also have an iMac for big tasks at home, but I'd also like what I have to be sufficient and capable when away from home too. However, after months of waiting and debating, and being disapointed with WWDC I've hit a point where I need to buy. These are the options I've come up with and I'd love to know what you think Macbook Air 2013 Refurb -£679 (a great price, won't depreciate much on resale in future) -4GB Ram (a bit disapointing compared to rMBP) -128GB SSD rMBA Update Could Be Coming Soon Light and easy to throw around (love this) Sufficient for basic tasks Great battery life Vs New Macbook Pro Retina 2014 -£999 (and a possible student discount) -8GB Ram -128GB SSD Next update probable in July 2015 Heavier than a Macbook Air But future proof and able to cope with bigger tasks Great display So what do you think? As I say, I'm stuck in a bit of dilema and all this weighing up is giving me a headache! I'm swayed towards the air atm for its ease and price, as it proberbly won't loose much on this in resale value if I decide to upgrade later on in the year, but I also love the capability and screen of the rMBP, and that it proberbly won't be getting another upgrade for a while now but don't so much like its weight. Any thoughts? What decision would you make? Thanks in advance!
