I'm starting an electrical engineering program in the fall and I was CONVINCED that I needed a Macbook Pro until I went to the store and really played with all the laptops. I currently have an '07 BlackBook and a year old iMac at home. I'm an older student (I already have a BS in Biochemistry and a JD) so I have a house and I'll be commuting 20 minutes to school. I started thinking about how I'm going to be lugging my laptop to class, library, computer labs, and coffee shops when I get sick of my husband Therefore, I'm pretty set on getting a 13" fully loaded Macbook Air when the new ones drop. I'll install AutoCad on my iMac and I know that the MBA will handle any word processing, programming, internet junk and media that I throw at it. So my issue (after a terribly long intro, sorry!) is that I'll be using Matlab quite a bit. Does anyone have any experience with Matlab on the MBA?
