    Hi guys. I'm new to the forum and I'm on the way of getting my first Mac. I read on the internet that it's difficult to set up 3 different OSs on a Mac Book Air. The uncertainty factor of whether it will work or not is a major turn down for me to get a 13" Mac Book Air.

    The main purposes of the laptop would be engineering, programming plus sound and photo editing and I want to install Mac OSX Lion, Ubuntu, and Windows 7 on the machine.

    Regarding the situation, which model do you guys think that I should get based on your experiences and knowledge?

    Thanks in advance.

    Get the Pro. The Air is locked into 4 GB of RAM forever while the MBP can be expanded to 16 GB, which will make things work better.

    You can also expand the MBPs storage, which you can't do on an Air.

    The pro, I imagine storage would fill up damn fast on the lower-end Airs.
