Hey everyone, I am a college student who lives at home. I currently use a mid 2010 13 inch macbook pro with 8GB ram and a 750gb 7200pm WD HD. This has the 2.4 ghz intel core 2 duo with the NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB. I have a very nice Dell 24" monitor with a set of speakers, mouse, and keyboard I have been using as a desktop / unplugging everything to take with me to school. I don't play any games, just internet / video watching, and type notes on Microsoft Word during class. Battery life is pretty important too because in one of my lecture halls all the tables do not have plugs. I just bought a mac mini as a desktop so I don't have to keep unplugging/replugging everything in and can just leave my laptop in my backpack, so I always have it with me when I need it. I am looking into trading or selling my MBP to get a MBA. I am hoping the 11 inch would be satisfactory for my purposes, either an older or current gen. If I had to I would get the 13 inch as well. I think I would be okay with the 64gb, the only thing that bothers me is the ram. Coming from 8GB to either 4gb or 2gb would seem like a huge hit. I have a NAS system as home so I don't need to worry about storage space, I won't be storing anything on my Air either. Will the performance be better, the same, or worse with an Air?
