Hi, I have a an early 2011 Macbook Pro and I believe it has a 2.3ghz processor vs. the 1.4ghz processor for the Air.* I am giving my son my 2011 Macbook Pro and am looking for a new Mac.* I am not a computer expert but I don't want a slow machine compared to what I have been running. I travel every week so the Air seems perfect for me. Typical uses are internet (mulitple tabs open), spreadhseets, word files, iTunes etc...no major video or picture editing....once in awhile I will mess around with Photoshop. Am I missing something? I just don't want a slow machine compared to what I've been using. Thanks for your input.
