I have a 2010 15 inch Matt screen macbook pro with snow leopard running, 4Gb ram, 500 notebook hard drive, and i7 processor, with a nivida video card. I also recently acquired a 2012 13 inch macbook air running mavericks with 8Gg of ram, 256gb solid state drive, i7 processor with an integrated onboard video. I am thinking of maybe selling one of these, as I am not sure I need 2 laptops, I am not sure which one would be better to keep and sell. I mostly edit photos run Photoshop, rip Audio cds and dvd movies, encode audio, and maybe occasionally edit and covert encode video. I would like to know that which ever one I keep could do a little video editing. Which of these is more powerful, or future proof? I am having a hard time deciding, the macbook air is lightweight, this is very handy, the macbook pro is much heavier. The macbook pro has a dedicated video card, the air has intergrated, but it has a solid state drive and more ram. The air also has more modern ports. I know that I could upgrade the hard drive and ram in the pro, but would it be worth it? as they are right now, they feel roughly equal in performance, although the air starts up and shuts down much more quickly.
