First of all, this is my first post so I want to thank you all for your hospitality. Now, coming to the topic. My early 2008 MacBook died a couple of weeks ago and I have to replace it. I have to admit the MBA has always been on the top of my wishlist and now I finally have the chance to buy it. I have found a brand new 11" MBA with C2D 1.6GHz, 128 GB SSD and 4GB of RAM for 860 euros. For the same prize I can get an entry level i5, with 64 GB SSD and 2 GB RAM. I am not really in the position for waiting until ??? for the new MBAs to be out. Question: what shall I go for? I have the desktop for heavy tasks, so the MBA would only be a terminal for basic tasks (mainly presentation, browsing and youtubing) and some basic data analysis (R and ImageJ). Thanks for your patience.
