Hi All. This is my first post. Love to read all the info and opinions here. Now I need help. I have a 2008 MBP 17". I like to mess with things and have a bad habit of trying out a lot of programs, so even though I wiped the HD and reinstalled just what I wanted, it's still really slow and very irritating. Have taken it to Genius Bar and they've been very nice but really couldn't help. I also have a 2008 MBA with a 128 GB SS drive. It was also running slowly but I fixed it and now it's fine. I use the MBP at home and take the Air to work when I need to do more than I can do on my iPad. Anyway, I'm going to give up on the MBP and want to use the Air as my home computer but the HD is too small. Otherwise I love this laptop! However it did cost $700 more than the current top of the line 13" . So the other day I was in the Apple Store which unfortunately is only 15 min from my house. I have been lusting after the new Airs. And somewhat impulsively I bought a 13" for home and 11" to travel with, both with i7 processor and 256GB SS drives. I've been transferring my data to a LaCie 120GB USB key, which is a very useful gadget, and haven't opened the boxes yet on the laptops. Have also resolved to be selective in the programs I install on new laptop so it doesn't go the way of the others. I never do gaming, so not sure if a faster processor really matters, and I don't care about retina display. Also I suppose it's not likely but I don't know what the price point will be on the next generation. Am I dumb to get these new laptops? I don't believe they are lacking anything I would want. Would love to hear some opinions. And for those who have read this all the way to the end, I appreciate your persistence.
