    I have a chance to trade my 2012 Alienware M14x R2 for a Mid-2012 13" Air with standard specs of 1.8 I5/ 4GB ram/ 128SSD. I already have a 15" MBP, but I like the portability of the Air. The specs of my M14x is below. Thoughts?

    Alienware M14X R2
    3rd Generation Intel Core i7-3610QM (6MB Cache, up to 3.3GHz w/ Turbo Boost 2.0)
    8GB DDR3 at 1600MHz
    14.0" High Def+ (900p/1600x900) with WLED backlight
    1 GB DDR5 NVIDIA GeForceGT 650M using NVIDIA Optimus technology
    256GB Samsung 830 SSD 6Gb/s
    Slot-Loading Dual Layer Blu-ray Reader (BR-ROM, DVD+-RW, CD-RW)

    Looks like you are trading a gaming laptop for a portable one? Is that what you want? As my 2012 MBA isn't a gaming horse though it can do some from the Mac App Store and Steam.

    Nor do I know the price your Alienware is going for.

    Yeah, it turns out I'm not much of a gamer. It's a nice machine, but it's a beast to carry around. I'm worried about running out of room on the Air's 128gb ssd since it's not easily upgradeable. Should I hold off and wait for a 256gb with maybe a retina display? I like my 15" MBP 1650x1080 anti-glare display.

    Is it true 128gb is too small to install Windows?
