My 2010 air is about to die, in fact I can barely type this on it. I am thinking of replacing with a Macbook, and waiting to order until Monday as I'm hoping will come with new OSX already installed. I was going to order the 1.3 i5 and upgrade to 16GB RAM, is there any point in upgrading the processor? I work with mostly word and web (with multiple windows), I do video and photo but have an iMac at work, and work at a university where I have access to anything I'd need significant on campus. I was thinking of MBP but I travel a lot and my back has already been killing me this week, so even though I might slightly miss the ports (and especially Magsafe, but thats not going to happen) I shouldn't have a problem accessing speed and software whenever I need.
