Was originally looking at the macbook air but I was told that for the specs I wanted I should look at the macbook pro. The main point of the computer is for school but will also be taking it everywhere I travel and plan to use it quite a lot at home. The specs side of things I'm happy with what I want, I'm worried about the size, it weighs 700g more then the air and as well is bigger. Also it offers only 9 hours compared to the MBA which has 12. Is the macbook a good laptop for a student. I'm starting grade 11 and I want a computer that is easy to carry and take places and is comfortable to use i.e. Does it get hot?
