Hey guys, I'm looking at getting the 11" MBA to replace my April 2010 13" MBP Due to an employee discount I have access to instead of $1449, I can get the standard 11" 128GB SSD, 1.4Ghz, 2GB ram at $1159.20. If I upgrade the processor and ram I can't use the discount, but can use education discount which works out to $1669.01. That's a difference of $509.81 for the upgrade. I know the processor and ram can't be updated later on, but is it worth it?? This is all in AUD. My usage: I currently use my MBP to surf sites, facebook, email, calendar, Torrent, iTunes, iPhoto that kind of stuff. I use Office for Mac (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) for Uni assignments, I also have iWork, but use Office more for some reason. I use EyeTV regularly to tape MotoGP and other shows and it converts those videos for my iPad. Very occasionally (maybe once every 2-3 months) I use Handbrake to convert series of TV shows and movies for my iPad. Next year I *might* need to boot camp for some Chemical Engineering programmes, but not sure yet. I was originally going to purchase the 27" ACD with it, but just found out the 27" iMac can be used as a display so have decided to just get an iMac for the extra $, and since I don't need it yet, I'll wait for the next revision. I have a TimeCapsule, which I can plug an external drive into and run media from right??? I also have an AirportExtremeBaseStation, iPad and iPhone 4, but I don't see any problems with them. I also have a super old crappy Windows thing from 8 years ago which will be replaced by the iMac later (P4 3Ghz- no exaggeration!!! it's old!) and will be selling my MBP when I get the MBA I am VERY likely to sell/upgrade when the next newest best thing comes out. I'm a bit crazy. With that all in consideration... Do I NEED the 1.6Ghz/4GB? Would it hurt the resale value considerably if I only get the 1.4Ghz/2GB? Also my MBP beachballs often, but it might be because I'm a moron and keep it running for months on end, kept the same hard drive from 2009 and never really cleaned it out or done any maintenance (I have a Seagate 500gb 7200 HDD as it was the only 7200 in 500GB at the time, but it might be faulty or whatever, planning to clean it out and use it in an external enclosure with the TC). Thanks for your time!
