Hello, as my new Semester starts in October i need a new portable machine. I am in an Informationsdesign college, which basically means i will do graphicsdesign, typography, some programming, audioproduction, etc. I have an 2011 27 inch imac at home, but i will need something protable to work on the university too. Also, i do audiorecording in my basement, so here is the Problem: My Interface (Motu ultralight) only has a firewire output. Is there a way to connect it to a 2011 MBA? I am deciding between an 2011 MBA and an 2011 Pro, both 13 inch. I would prefer the MBA because of its dimensions, its resolution and the SSD + the newer processor. However without firewire, how would i be able to record audio trough an interface, as there are no TB interfaces out right now. I am thinking about an 13 inch MBP with an 128 SSD upgraded, but in reality i dont want an optical drive, and i like the MBA Design more. Also, the base 13 inch MBA would be cheaper than the upgraded MBP. Thanks for your input.
