Ive been scouting the web for about 48 hours trying to find a solution to my problem on deciding if the 4GB is worth the wait versus the basemodel MacBook Air 11.6 2GB 64SSD? The greatest tip along the way has been this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhulqL96qcs Which is a 13.3 with 2GB, but of course it has a 1.86 CPU making his performance about 33% faster by clock speed. As a avid Photoshop user, my main concern is about just doing levels, curves and small retouching regarding spots, speckles and details disturbing the image. Of course all my files are RAW, both compact and SLR. Since an Atom 330 PC with 2GB RAM handles it above bearable, I have faith in that the Macbook Air also will sustain my patience whenever I drag and drop a slider to adjust my image. I also do alot of webwork, I love TextMate, which is a killerapp because of the layout and crispness. Old seller arguments like Expose in OSX makes me ignore the slickness of the computer, as long as the GUI responds fast and keeps feeding my mind with what I want. I also want to have FontExplorer X running with 5000+ fonts, three browserwindows full of tabs, maybe some InDesign if I need to sketch out a productsheet. Is it possible with 2GB RAM? By the way, I dont give a d4mn about startup times, its just boring. Of course I like to get my programs started, but my biggest concern is actual use, which none of the farmers on this forum seem to care about. They are either a PC geek with an enthusiast outlook on hardware or somebody holding his new mac up in the air like a trophy, but is anybody using it? Facebook will never kill your CPU, max out your RAM... Im just curious, why do most people upgrade? To brag on forum, twitter or anything else. What I hate the most is people reviewing their new products on Youtube, dont get me wrong, I love information, but people have a tendency to talk about how much their dog love the design for 1 minute in a 1:30 clip, and nobody has the decency to actually equalize out the raw info I want to want. Final Cut is a brilliant name, and is Mac exclusive, how cant anybody with a Mac actually make a Final Cut? The video on the top, does a decent job and it doesnt throw away too much of your time, but I would love to know more. Not a white background promotional video with the engineer praising his own work, I want editing, excellent videos that are actually CUT, not a long monologue, I believe we got books for that kind of thing, and even those guys have editors to cut out your tongue when it gets long. Give me benchmarks, test, videoproof, smooth writing, or I will do it myself when I get my Macbook Air, if its capable of delivering.
