So I just had a discussion with my classmates about the MBA and the MBP13. And we just happened to have both of them lying around. So I showed my MBP13 (early 2011) and another classmate his MBA13 (late 2010). And immediately everyone was literally laughing at how thick my MBP was. I couldn't convince them that the thickness is irrelevant since its always in your backpack anyway. That was the first thing they noticed. Then they compared the weight of it and they just destroyed my MBP based on those two things. It's like they were blinded by design only. Well we did a comparison of the screens too. But it didn't matter everyone was already biased. Although everyone admitted that there wasn't really a big difference in the display. We never even got to the point that my mbp blows the mba out of the water in terms of sheer power. In terms of hdd capacity it has more than 10x as much capacity than the mba it was compared to. It was also using a sata3 ssd. The only remark I got was " yeah you got thunderbolt, I dont". Even on macrumors I read some comments they some people hoped that they would just finish off the MBP13 line. I also see alot of comments that you should get a MBP15 instead. Since its not that much bigger. Well the MBP13 is significantly cheaper than the MBP15 and its also a pound lighter. And compared to the MBA13 its has tons more storage. Having 1TB of data in the cloud is going to cost a fortune and if you got data caps on 3g and a crappy internet connection both at home as well as 3g then its just not going to work. Why is there so much negativity towards the MBP13?
