    My wife has a macbook from her freshman year in college that is now 6 years old. I was looking to get her the new pro or air. What do you guys think would be the best option?

    We do not know what your wife does with the laptop, do not know if portability/weight/screen size is a big deal for her.. How do you want us to help?

    Also, you may want to change the thread title to something more clarifying.

    A bit more requirements are needed, such has usage needs, mobility needs etc.

    Does she need a larger screen, i.e., 15" or a 13". Is an optical drive a must, or number of ports. etc.

    Does she complain about the performance, the weight, the display or all of the above?
    That should give you an idea about which features are the most important.

    The MBA should outperform an older MBP and of course it's the lightest option.

    The display of the MBA looks a bit washed out compared to my cMBP even if the 13" MBA does have a few more pixels and obviously the rMBP display is better again.
