    Hey guys I do not own a Macbook, but the last week or so I have been looking at macbook pro and macbook air.
    I was wondering if you guys can help me out with making a decision. I am not sure which one should I get macbook pro or macbook air. I am a college student I do some gaming sometime. I also would probably like to install windows on it.
    Thanks

    A Mac Pro is not a notebook. A MacBook Air is a lightweight notebook.

    It is going to be Portability vs Power.
    If you travel alot, get MBA.
    If you need the power get the MBP

    well, if you're doing a lot of photo or movie editing and hardcore gaming get the MBP
    the MBA will do just fine for browsing, music, word processing and other things
    me myself doesn't do much editing nor gaming and i'm a MBP user. and it is doing far more than enough mate

    for gaming then you can look at Mac Pro (desktop) If you are a student then stick with MacBook Air (notebook).

    Anyway it is all depend on what you are studying? If you are taking graphic classes I think MacBook Pro (notebook/any screen size) will do the job.
