Well I'm debating on purchasing my first mac. My current setup includes a Samsung Ativ Book 8 w/ an SSD that is hooked up to an external monitor. I really like this laptop and believe it to be on par with the Macbook Pro (as much as a PC can be). I like Windows 8.1 and the versatility of having a dual monitor setup and being able to bring my laptop out on the road. However, I am seeking a device that can bring me into the world of Mac. I would find it convenient if I could leave my laptop connected to the external monitor for a majority of the time. I often find it to be a hassle disconnecting the VGA cable and power supply every time I want browse the web on my couch. I think the Macbook Air would be a great addition. It would give me the ability to experience both operating systems without limiting performance. I am not a fan of tablets but feel that this setup would give me a lot of versatility. Any advice on my first Mac would be helpful, thanks!
