    Hello,

    I Need to know if a Macbook Air or Pro, would be enough for heavy Web App developing & OS X Applications?? (I've posted this in another thread since it covers multiple areas)

    My usage will be the following:

    • CSS,HTML,XHTML, AJAX, JAVA, PHP
    • PHOTOSHOP CS4 & **ILLUSTRATOR (maybe)
    • For programming ALL things for the OS X platform.

    The Photoshop usage is what's making this a somewhat difficult decision between the two. Whatever hardware I decide & get advice on I will be getting the SSD's 128 (for the Air) & the 256 (for the Pro)... Towards December I'll be purchasing the new imac but in the mean time what portable would any of you recommend??... As far as usage goes, basically 8hrs a day will be dedicated to this. So I'm very serious.

    Thanks ahead of time for any input,

    SSkky

    I'd go for the MacBook Pro. The uses you describe are pretty much exactly what it's made for.
