After 5 great years, my white Macbook is almost at the end so I'm on a search for a replacement. MacBook Pro v MacBook Air I have 2 small children and laptops often get knocked about. I worry that a MacBook Air is too fragile. Feels like a Pro is the right direction. Am I mistaken? What's your feedback Retina v. standard I don't do heavy crunching, I don't do graphic work so I don't think I need a retina screen and don't feel I could justify the price. Is it significantly better that makes the additional £ spend worthwhile? HDD v. SSD I've only ever had HDD but I'm feeling drawn to the SSD due to speed and noise. I've only got 120GB drive in my old laptop which is some 80% full as most storage is on my 1TB iMac. I would go fusion but that's not available. Any experiences of SSD to share -- worth the investment? Any hardware recommendations or important criteria I've overlooked? Cheers.
