First off, I am new not only to this forum, but have never owned an apple computer. I accidentally found this site by typing in 'mac rumors' on google when I was looking up info on the iphone 5. I've owned various PC laptops over the years, and am about to upgrade a very outdated Sony Vaio. Since I am starting to learn Final Cut (a bit of a hobby), I thought it would be convenient to just jump ship and buy an apple laptop. I also like the stability of the OS, as I have had problems with each new release of Windows. I am a bit unsure on what type of laptop to get. I spend a great deal of time with Final Draft, and do light photoshop work, as well as interneting. I'd also like to toy around with Final Cut, as I am teaching myself how to learn the program. Since I really don't know much about the power of these laptops, would a Macbook Pro be my best bet because of the upgradeability of the HD and RAM? Or will a Mac Air suit all my needs? I went to the apple store today and played around with each one, and although I did fall in love with the Retina screen, I'm not sure it is really necessary for what I need to do. I don't have a desktop computer, so this purchase will be my sole computer. I'm not sure I understand the power difference between the Air and Pro aside from the i5 and i7 processors as listed on the website.
