Hello Everyone, I know there are a couple of threads comparing the new MBA to a MBP, but mine is slightly different. First, this will be my first Mac computer. I have an iPhone and use iTunes, but have never had any sort of Mac computer system. Second, I do not have a desktop or large monitor and have no plans to purchase one. This notebook will be my only computer system. (My current computer is a Lenovo Thinkpad X61. I am NOT fond of it. At all.) Now, on to my scenario. I am not very tech savvy, so when quoting GHz and RAM, I'm not that versed in spec. comparing, but am willing to go research if the need arises. I am a college student preparing to go to medical school within the next two years. I drag a computer around with me all day so the lightness of the Air is appealing. Also, I cannot last with only 5 hours of battery life, so the 11.6" Air is not an option. As far as what I use the computer for, I would use the equivalent for Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. I also heavily use the internet for journal articles, web browsing, etc. Right now, I am heavily leaning towards the MBA 13" with 4 RAM. My main question here is: Is this a mistake? I just want to make sure I am prepared before I go and spend a great deal of money on a computer. And lastly, I need to buy a computer within the next month, so waiting for a brilliant MBP update or next generation Air is not an option. Thank You!
