Hello everyone, I would love to get some advice on the following topic... I am starting law school in the fall, and I am planning on getting a new Mac (or a new Mac set up) to get me through those three years of ****. Here's a little bit about me first so you guys can see where I'm coming from - 1. I've been using an old school macbook for the past 4 years and enjoy it, although run out of space (lots of photos) 2. I have a external hard drive I could probably use (not mac brand, but still compatible) 3. I don't plan on gaming on my desktop, and these computers would be used mainly for school work/ word processing/outlining/etc. 4. I'd like to have a big screen so I can visually see me outlines and notes. 5. I'd like something lightweight to carry with me. Here are the options I have come up with for a mac set up, let me know what you guys think - Op 1. MacBookPro 13in Thunderbolt = $2349 750GB Storage Op 2. MacBookAir 11in/64gb IMac (500GB) = $2200 500GB Storage w/ 64gb flash Op 3. MacBook Air 11in/128gb IMac (500GB) = $2400 500GB Storage w/ 128gb flash Op 4. MacBook Air 11in/64gb IMac (1TB) = $2500 1TB Storage w/ 64gb flash Op 5. Macbook Air 11in/128gb IMac (1TB) = $2700 1TB Storage w/ 128gb flash Yes I'm nerdy and worked this all out... I told you I'm going to law school! Anyways, I really dont know how any of these machines would respond well with eachother or talk to eachother. Basically, I want it to be as easy as possible to get everything synced and matched up, I plan on bringing my computer with me to every class, and would like it if I could use the bigger screen at home for studying/notes. A few questions - Will Air sync w/ iMac automatically? Is Air "flash" faster than macbook pro for classroom on/off use? Battery life longer? How much "flash storage" do you really need on a macbook air? Sorry for such a long post - I'd really appreciate any help anyone has on this. Going for convenience here!
