Hi all, Ive been scouting a laptop since i moved house in June/July and had to ditch my hefty desktop, i got an ipad to tie me over. I originally would never consider a macbook air/pro as i just assumed they are overpriced for me. (i was aiming for a 6-700£ laptop windows) However looking online i saw amazon are selling the base 2012 13inch MBP for £885 for the airs for around that price. And i thought maybe the extra squeeze on my finances might pay off in the long run. I mean i now have a iphone, ipad atv3 etc so ive been slowing going apple without knowing it lol. The more i have looked into it tho, the more confusing apple products seem! Constant trade offs and add ons and different prices! My primary use would be for itunes/ripping DVDs to play on ATV3, playing SC2+WOW+CS:GO and general usage(with my ipad being used to watch stuff when travelling around). I loved the look of the 13inch air in the store, but couldnt afford the 8GB Ram version easily and the MBP i could update whenever! How does the base 2012 MBA play sc2(dont care about settings just FPS, so all low at native res, just looking for smoothness)? ive seen wow played on a HD3000 quite well and i understand the Ivybridge HD4000 is quite a leap? Or should i gofor the i7 version of the 13inch? My issue with the i7 version is the cheapest i could get that is for £1170~ which is a step up, and if i spend that much i could get the 15inch base for £1250...you see how quickly my initial payout range has doubled lol. TLDR: Will i still love a base 13inch MBP as my main laptop and first dive into mac and be able to achieve my needs?
