i have a 2011 17” mac book pro that I bought brand new. I’ve changed the hard drive for a 1tb ssd, upgraded to 16gb of ram and ditched the dvd drive for a hybrid hard drive. Now I’m trying to decide on purchasing a new laptop. I’m thinking of purchasing a fully loaded MacBook Air with 2.2ghz i7, 512gb ssd, 8gb of memory. It would cost around 1550. I’m sssuming this would get me to newer technology, be a faster system and work well. Other option would be MacBook for about 2k. It would get me 16gb if ram and 512gb ssd but only a 1.4ghz i7. Only briefly played with my daughters air so I would like your opinion.
