As the title suggests, I'm looking for a MBA for uni. I would go for the i7 which is a similar price of the base model 15" MBP or the 13" MBP with a SSD. I just do general tasks but I download and watch a lot of films on VLC. Would it be fine with 1080p video (my 09 MBP 2.26 core 2 duo struggles with 1080p a bit) I also do light video editing with premiere pro (would move onto FCPX if the air could handle it but not too fussed really) I was wondering what the screen is like on the MBA as it really is a dealbreaker for me. Also what would be the difference in speed with a base MBP 13" with 256gb SSD to the MBA. Personally I don't think the Mbp 15" is worth it unless you get the higher end model with 1gb graphics and 2.2ghz but what do you reckon (I haven't used a 15" mbp before!) Thanks!!
