    Hi :)

    I am going to buy Macbook Air, I want it for school and photoshop lightroom especialy.
    Problem is, that I want windows for some especially aplications for school projects,... Thats mean, I will instal in bootcamp win 7 with about 40gb.

    I deciding between 2011 or 2012 base models. I can save about 150€.
    I thinking, that a get rather 2011 model with 256gb.

    What do you thing ? :) Thanks and sorry for my english :)

    With BC Win7 and Lightroom, that space is going to go very quickly.

    I'd recommend an external drive for the Lightroom catalog if you're going to get an Air.

    Down the rabbit hole
    I don't think I'd consider less than 256GB of space if you plan to install a Windoze partition also.

    get 256gb and max out ram 8GB. 2011 or 2012 model doesnt matter. its a good machine and youll never go wrog with either.
