    11" screen is pretty small for a primary computer

    You're confused.

    Re: Headphones - head-fi.org

    Why get a laptop and an iPad 2?

    Good point. Beats sound terrible. Sloppy, overpowering bass, and no musicality to speak of.

    I recommend getting an iPod nano and saving the rest for bail money. Then again you and I have different needs. hahahahahahaha



    But in all seriousness, I acquired an iPad 2 in June and my 13" MBP about a month ago. Yeah the iPad is fun and helps in school and my MBP is a great machine, but I am honestly regretting not saving and getting the 15" with hi res screen. Especially now that the new updates are here. :/ Oh well, I'm getting the 2012 MBP, regardless if complete redesign or not.

    Why a MBA + iPad 2? :p I think they are targeted for the same users.

    roflolmfao @ Beats by Dr. Dre (MR forums won't let me say its real name)

    MBP 15" is the clear winner by a million lightyears.

    Do you have another computer already like a desktop Mac? If so, an Air might be good to complement that.

    If it will be your only computer, you might want the 15-inch Pro or a 13-inch Air.

    I tossed around the idea of the new 13" Air. If not for the ram limitation, I would have done it in a heartbeat. While I like the hi-res antiglare on the 15" MBP, I would make some sacrifices for the portability. If you don't have demands that will push the ram limits hard, then do that. Save $1000.

    Get the 13 inch MBP, Grado headphones (made in Brooklyn), and

    an Amazon Fire for $199. :D
