I was wondering if the new base model of the 13 inch Macbook Air is good for Xcode development? I currently use my 2011 mac mini with 8gb of ram and it does fine. I'm curious if the 1.8ghz ivy bridge i5 MBA 13in with 8gb of ram will do the same if not better than my mac mini? Also some light photo editing. Or am I better off going with a rMBP to invest in the future or a 2012 normal 13 inch MBP or 15 inch MBP. I appreciate all opinions. PS. - I'm also starting my Computer Science B.A. this year so that also has to be considered. Thanks so much.
