I'm due to get my company MacBook Pro 15" upgraded next month, and since the new Airs came out, and all the reviews and benchmarks came out afterwards, plus having visited the Apple store to see them for real, it's been a hard decision as to whether to go for a maxed out 13" MacBook Air, or the faster 13-inch MacBook Pro. We're done with the 15-inch machines, they're just too big and heavy to carry everywhere as we do, so it really came down to these two. Ultimately, I'm going with the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Sure, the weight of the Air is awesome, but the lack of ports concerns me (firewire, ethernet), as does the slower processor, and soldered RAM. There's also a slight aesthetic consideration, I quite like the Pro's form factor, black bezel and substantial feel. But, of course, the big thing is performance, and with the Air seemingly being close to the base level 2.4GHz, 13-inch Pro in some benchmarks, and beating it in a a few, I've settled on what I think will be the best of both worlds: a 13-inch, 2.66GHz 4GB Pro, fitted with a third party 256GB SSD (probably OWC Mercury Extreme). In total, it's about A$100 more than the maxed out Air, but I think it will be a damn fine piece of kit for the next two years and I can also upgrade the RAM to 8GB and drop in a higher capacity SSD as and when they drop in price (as they will do). I think the longevity of the machine is worth it over the extreme portablity offered by the Air. What do you guys think?
