Hi All, New to this site but wanted to ask a quick question. I have to reduce my tax and am going to do that by salary sacrificing a laptop. I was thinking about getting a Macbook Air 13" fully spec'd (8gbRam, SSD) ($2028AUD with applecare). I currently have a mid 2009 macbook pro with a 256SSD and 8GB of ram (see attached). I only really watch HD movies; word process, internet usage and I also need to be able to efficiently run windows through parallel desktop; nothing more graphics intensive than that. My question is - Will I see a significant speed difference when I change to the i7 processor even though the clock speed drops slightly. I have limited knowledge about processors. The reason I don’t want to get another macbook pro is the slight decrease in weight, price and the fact that I don’t want to spend 3grand (with applecare) for something that can never be upgraded (HD and RAM). I realise the macbook air can’t be either but it’s cheaper, lighter and lik;ey to be adequate for my needs; BUT I’m only going to get it if I notice a significant jump in speed. Thanks all.
