I'm so sorry for another (help me decide) thread. I've been trying my hardest to do this and it's been driving me "insane". I've gone back and forth so many times. Who am I and why do I want this: I'm a college student. I went desktop a few years back because I needed power (gaming) but it's becoming more and more obvious that I need a laptop as classes grow more and more computer oriented. Also traveling = no computer for me as I'm not lugging a massive tower around. My desktop is a PC, and I love windows, but I want a mac because they're so well built and I feel the OS is built for a great and seamless mobile experience. I've tried a netbook once and it was...it was a horrible experience. Windows tends to feel very cramped in small spaces. What do I need it for: -Taking notes/study sessions/school stuff (nothing too demanding computer-wise) -Gaming (I'm not going to use this as a gaming laptop, but when I'm traveling and such, I will want to be able to play WoW and some more casual games (WoW will be the most intense thing I want to run on here)) -Normal browsing/media/etc normal stuff -I want this to be a laptop I can take anywhere at all times How I feel about the 11: -Sexy, looks like the perfect size for a portable machine. Feels just right. -Screen very wide/short and makes writing on documents a bit odd, but not a deal-breaker -Components are very functional, but I feel that it's not very future proof at all. It's spec'd like a "replace every year" machine, but it's priced like a "last 4 years" machine. I've played with one in a store and it was very smooth for the most part, but the browser's inertia scrolling lagged noticeably and it kind of bugged me. -Really could use that SD card slot >_> -64gb is TINY, and to upgrade the SSD AND the RAM, then suddenly you're at the price of the 13" The 13" -Great value (for a mac) in terms of design/performance -For the price of the upgraded 11" i mentioned earlier, you get a higher resolution, MUCH more battery life, and significantly more powerful computing performance (I've read all the reviews and looked at all the benchmarks). - I haven't been able to see one in person, but the macbookpro looks...big. I mean not "big" but after seeing the tiny little 11 it seemed almost unnecessarily big. How is the size difference in person?? -More future proof, more like a real computer...thing is, my desktop is my real computer, do I need a highly functioning second one? Like I said, the 11" i'd buy would be the same price as a stock 13" (though i'd upgrade the ram). I find it hard to justify wanting that when it can't do as much and won't last as long It's like I want the 11", but I know the 13" is so much more for the same $$$. The 11 is sexy, yes, but who's the say the 13" isn't....right? Maybe the 11" is one to keep an eye on later down the road when new components are available..after all, this won't be my last laptop by any means. But then again, this is just secondary computer that won't be used as a main workstation, so it doesn't need to be perfect. What do you think?
